It's blaterz the best part about ice hockey.
they are encouraged to fight
but why not go to a boxing match? its not like they score points off it or anything?
Just North America I think.
Scandinavians are too nice for fighting.
Dude, it was mega-awesome
and i watched that entire olympics
and aren't on ice.
She's hard as nails.
'puck' is another word for 'face' in Canadian. Ergo, you're allowed to smash opposing faces with sticks and hands.
Because otherwise why would you go?
There must be places to watch ice hockey in London, right? Who wants to go?
i bet i'm well good at ice hockey (fighting/falling over)
At a press launch for Dentyl pH. Hmmm.
Anyway. The Haringey Greyhounds call it home now. KEEP OFF.
probably queueing for chips on that carpet still with their skates on like me.
"i'm sure those girls are looking at us"
i'm sure there must be some (*even*) lower standard teams somewhere though
ten teams, most of the players are from outside the UK. go!
bloody love it
I used to play down Lea Valley in Leyton. And the Knights play(ed) at the arena in Docklands. Not sure what the status of the league is now.
remember when we watched the superbowl together and it broke away to a clip of some birds in a nest?
How could I forget the owl? Or the Frank Butcher 'comedy' video. Or Nogel Wonterborn.
It's almost that time again.
Peggy Laslett is attending Superbowl 4million.
RIP Mike Reid :(
There's quite a lot on. Also, I forgot how awesome the names were. Slough Jets. Telford Tigers. South Lee Valley Lions. Invicta Mustangs. Romford Raiders. Sheffield Steelers. South Haringey Greyhounds. Invicta Dynamos. South Streatham Redskins. Milton Keynes Thunder.
How come Invicta has two teams? It's not even a place!
i want to live in INVICTA
they're blantantly from crystal palace but werent allowed use the name
Yah dahling, I live in North Barnsbury.
i live in brockwell park west
What do you fear more: Invicta, or FOLKESTONE?
I'm off to see South Streatham Redskins.
check out the box at the bottom of this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elite_Ice_Hockey_League
THERE ARE SO MANY TEAMS/LEAGUES!
One of the Swindon players was smacking so many people that he broke his stick. 'Mazin.
I'll do some research and find a game we can all go to. In February, after payday.
"South Haringey Greyhounds"
what counts as "south haringey"??!
A NAME WE HAVE FORGOTTEN METHINKS
go check a map
hmm, it would seem they are using the wrong boundaries. its DEFINATELY not me who is wrong here
and certainly not in a thread about a game i know LOADS about
i assumed it was american, because it was present as american sports generally are - short bursts of action, replays, flashy computer graphics, lots of stats. then i noticed that there were advertising boards around the edge for Spar and the South Wales Echo :D
i'm totally up for going to something, anyway.
the big brutes who'll try and beat the crap out of the other teams stars and intimidate them a bit, it's a legitimate part of the game, but obviously, the way american sports are run, it does seem like a bit of a sideshow. Over here the refs are far too over zealous so there aren't as many fights.
I've not been since they started playing in Altrincham...
would you fancy getting in between two large gentleman with blades on their feet and large wooden stick in their hands?
they drop their helmets, punched the fuck out of each other for a minute, then get sin-binned. it's entertaining, and has become part of the sport now.
it used to be great when you had fights on the NHL megadrive game. all of a sudden your 'pass' and 'shoot' buttons turned into 'punch' and 'kick'.
the game was actually one of the better ones on the mega drive
Most of my time playing that game was spent trying to figure out how to cause fights at will.
...also, I seem to remember the cartridge had some yellow tab in it. Why?
Name the film.
Can't see anyone greenlighting that, frankly.
That's why Tottenham's such a shithole.
Natalie Portman's Vancouver Canucks tatts are a dream.
Baby, you're so money.
Now where's the match report from Sunday?
there has even been plans made to go to a game. Bravo meths.
Whilst waiting behind after the game for our friend to come back (he knew the coach), one of the players skated over in front of us. Upon spying my angelic, eight year-old face beaming over towards him with glee, he proceeded to throw the winning puck over to me as a souvenir from my first ever ice hockey game. The puck soared through the air like the closing scenes from a Mighty Ducks film and hit me right bang in the knee - I let out a yelp and tried desperately to stifle my tears. He immediately reacted and came over to apologize to my mum and i. I've never been to a game since. I still have that puck.
With pools of blood collecting on the ice, Malarchuk somehow left the ice under his own power with the assistance of his team's athletic trainer, Jim Pizzutelli. Many spectators were physically sickened by the sight, with nine fainting and two suffering heart attacks while three teammates vomited on the ice. Local television cameras covering the game cut away from the sight of Malarchuk after realizing what had happened.
"Malarchuk's life was saved by Jim Pizzutelli, the team's athletic trainer and a former army medic who had served in Vietnam. He reached into Malarchuk's neck and pinched off the bleeding, not letting go until doctors arrived to begin suturing the wound."
The English Premier League is the one. It's all about the Peterborough Phantoms. I still miss the (Norwich and) Peterborough Pirates though :(
Re: South Lee Valley Lions, South Haringey Greyhounds and South Streatham Redskins...
The "Souths" are erroneous. I realised this last night while looking at the print version of Time Out. They play in the English National League South, so yesterday when I saw "English National League South Lee Valley Lions v Slough Harrier Hawks", all in the same font, for some reason I assumed that it was the English National League and that "South" was part of the team name.
So it's just Lee Valley Lions, Haringey Greyhounds, Streatham Redskins.
Yes, I'm a idiut.
although you will have to foot the bill for the removal of 'south' on my South Haringey Greyhounds tattoo now.
and put a colon before "Haringey". That should do it.
And a guy got his jaw broke. There was blood everywhere. Some guys had to come scrape the blood off the ice. Pretty brutal
