I’m tired of the bad rap hockey gets in the States.
It’s largely because of the media; particularly newspaper sports editors.
Many of them promote other sports because they don’t have a clue about hockey. Worse, they cover up their lack of knowledge by making non-factual, blanket statements like “nobody cares about hockey.”
What also gets me are the people who complain about hockey being on Versus, saying they can’t find the channel. What a bunch of donkeys.
They’ll click through 100 channels to find porn or some boring basketball game that takes two hours to finish because the last minute is a foul-filled, timeout-laden 45 minutes long, but they can’t be bothered to click to find hockey.
What a bunch of garbage.
