    Take your favorite sport. Imagine all the skills of football, rugby, soccer and baseball, then imagine them playing on ice.

    That is NHL Hockey. Few sports have harder hitting, no sports have something as hard to hit/manuaever as a hockey puck (sliding on ice), moving extremely fast, all the while someone huge is trying to kill you. Then do all that while on ice, and shoot the puck in a relatively small goal. These guys are constantly going backwards, sideways, anyway at all - extremely fast with viscous contact. The most difficult footwork of any sport combined with most contact and not on solid ground.

    Why do you bother making worthless, meaningless coments?

    It's not my fault you made a fool of yourself defending that hockey players are more athletic than decathletes.

    Figure skaters are more athletic than hockey players... they just can't fight as well.

    You don't need to agree with me... but it's at the risk of being WRONG.

    Let's say that figure skaters don't fight as fair as hockey players. 😉

    Take your favorite sport. Imagine all the skills of football...

    Being overweight and still being an athlete.

    ...rugby...

    Same as football, but with less self-esteem

    ...soccer...

    Good footwork.

    ... and baseball...

    Being able to groove your swing.

    ...then imagine them playing on ice...

    The ability to slide.

    This is PBA Bowling!
