    Sometimes we call professional athletes “heroes,” but that is just an exaggeration. They’re not real heroes. At the end of the day, you don’t want your kids looking up to those rich prima donnas. You want them looking up to real heroes like firefighters and police officers—people with character and honor who won’t hesitate to […]

    When your hockey team is in the midst of an eight-game losing streak, there are only two things that will help you feel good about yourself again.

    Selfies are all the rage now, with some people competing over who can take the baddest or rarest selfie in a dangerous or unlikely locale.

    Emotions run very high during hockey games, so much so that fights breaking out are the rule rather than the exception.

    When people refer to hockey as a “full-contact sport,” they generally don’t mean spectators, but one fan watching Thursday’s game between the Montreal Canadiens and Columbus Blue Jackets became an unwitting exception to that rule. To be fair, the fan was pressed up against the glass and banging their hands against it, which is kind […]

    The Ottawa Senators were playing against the Tampa Bay Lightning last night, but it was the Senators’ forward Ales Hemsky who was moving faster than Lightning while maneuvering through their defense during his second period goal. Like Bruce Lee or Jackie Chan, Hemsky is surrounded by hostile parties and on enemy territory when he managed […]

    Hockey is infamous for the frequency and intensity of the fights that break out between players, but it’s rare even in this sport for the referees to get involved in the brawls.  After all, it’s generally the ref’s job to break them up, not make them worse.
