Kukla's Korner Hockey

No Longer Major

from the Richmond Times-Dispatch,
With the Stanley Cup finals under way, it's probably time to announce the retirement of ice hockey as a major sport in the United States. There's a difference, of course, between retirement and disappear ance. Hockey's in no danger of extinction and remains a national obsession in Canada. In certain hockey-oriented areas - New England, Minnesota, Chicago and Detroit come to mind - the game still attracts participants and spectators in a very major way. It's not the game that's dead, it's the old idea that the "big four" major professional sports leagues are the NFL, Major League Baseball, the NBA and the NHL.
