Found February 05, 2013 on With Leather:
I really enjoyed watching this commercial for a Michigan-area high school hockey game between schools Clarkston and Lake Orion, but I can’t settle on a reason why. What I have so far includes:1. As a Washington Capitals fan, the NHL is basically the saddest thing to me ever right now, and I have to remember that I like the sport whether or not it’s crushing my will to live.2. Watching children get hurt is always fun, especially if they’re high schoolers.3. You could set anything to ‘The Hockey Song’ by Stompin’ Tom and it’d be enjoyable.But yeah, I live in central Texas and even I’m considering trying to make it up for this. If you live in Michigan, hit it up and demand the same amount of entertainment as presented in the commercial. If kids aren’t being attacked by hockey guys and blasted in the head with soda cans, it’s just a hop, skip and a jump to total satisfaction.[via IASID]The post Hockey, Improving The High School Experience By Hurting Everyone There appeared first on W...
