    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 […]

    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.

    You know who’s not caught up in the Olympic spirit? Pretty much everyone at the peewee hockey game between Brokenhead and Sagkeeng in Winnipeg last Saturday. There was no sportsmanship or camaraderie, and there was no setting aside of differences. Instead, there was only physical violence and an abundance of foul language. The two teams […]

    The 13 Greatest Goalie Fights in NHL History

    We’re supposed to disapprove of line brawls in hockey because they make the game look silly and barbaric. However, I don’t really buy that. I think the regular fights we see today—the ones where guys agree to fight each ahead of time, for no reason, and then throw down as soon as the puck drops—those […]

    Evgeni Malkin Fights 7-Year-Old Hockey Player…For Charity (Video)

    Under normal circumstances, a full-grown man getting into a hockey fight with a 7-year-old would be considered shameful. However, when that grown man is former NHL MVP Evgeni Malkin, and when the fight in question is all part of a charity hockey game in his native Russia, well then in that case a hockey fight […]
