A Treatise Against Golf

Can’t stand the sport

Not only am I not paying attention to the NHL playoffs, but I don’t even know which teams are playing!

I can’t stand the sport. I skip over the hockey articles in my sports magazines and use the time for the hockey highlights on Sports Center to use the bathroom (I still think that is the only reason ESPN shows hockey).

My favorite year in hockey was last year during the lockout. It was great watching basketball and baseball highlights with no hockey mixed in. How do you cheer for players whose names you can’t pronounce and the greatest player in the history of the sport isn’t even from the United States?

I have tried to give hockey a chance. One year in college I watched the entire playoffs with one of only three people in the world that actually likes hockey, but I just couldn’t get into it.

Watch hockey? I would rather watch a game of college bowling or Olympic curling any day.

Ugh. Sometimes the world irritates me.
