Reader Alex W. sent me a quick email telling me about a video. Alex writes,
"I got to say, first that I love Hockey Blog in Canada, read it daily and it's in my RSS. I wanted to shoot you a message to see if you've seen this video with these guys playing roller hockey and these sports center guys talking sh*t? Anyway, keep up the good work."First off, thanks for reading, Alex, and I appreciate the kind words. I try to be a blog "of the people, by the people, for the people", so I'm always inclined to check something out if it comes from a reader.
The link to the video that Alex sent is actually of some guys playing ball hockey, not roller hockey. There are two faux sports announcers who are doing some play-by-play, and they certainly make a few funny comments while calling this less-than-stellar game of hockey. Here's the video.
I had a few laughs from that video. The commentary could have been funnier, but I'm not here to critique the commercial. Instead, I'm just enjoying the idea of having play-by-play for a recreational ball hockey game. I do want to be clear, though, that I'm not in the business of promoting any sort of gambling website, so I want to post a clear and concise disclaimer if you happen to visit the gambling website:
PLEASE KNOW YOUR LIMIT AND PLAY RESPONSIBLY!That being said, it's a good video with a few laughs. Everyone can use that on a Friday, right? I know I can use a laugh to close out my week. Thanks for the suggestion, Alex, and thanks again for reading!
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
