No sport plays as many international tourneys than hockey except soccer but there are more soccer leagues and players in the world than people.
BS! :eh:

Most sports have loads of international play, except for baseball and gridiron football, that hardly anyone cares about outside of North America.

Cricket, field hockey, basketball, rugby, volleyball, tennis, table tennis, handball, futsal, bandy, floor ball... they all have international events, and most of them on a yearly basis. Hockey is no different than the others.

Football is a game where you use your feet to handle a spherical object (aka a ball).
If you don’t believe me, ask the English, who invented the language you use.

Gridiron (or American football) is a less exciting version of rugby where you have removed the no forward pass rule.
It has less than half the fan base of professional table tennis, and roughly one ninth of the fan base of actual football.
Whatever you do, always give 100 %!

Stevens was a tank. And it’s not like he was backpedaling away after he just blew a guy up. He would fight anybody and usually won. As I said the dropyourgloves site recorded more fights for players. I’d venture to say he had between 150 and 200 bouts easily.

It was a different time. And half of Neely’s, Clark’s or Tocchet’s hits would be charging today. Clark used to jump at guys and hit them. Watch his fights with Probert. He jumped Bobby twice. He was as malicious as anyone, ditto for Tocchet. Fuck he used to gouge guys. Ask Dean Chynoweth about that.

I loved the Ortona deli on hastings growing up but I'll tell ya...boring ass tomato sauce on the italian ones is far inferior to the rich and creamy meat sauce that the swedish balls are served with. Oh and forget the gross garbage at ikea...thats like saying lipton fettuccine alfredo is italian cooking

You ain’t ever been exposed to the right italian meatballs and when you ain’t exposed to the right Italian meatballs you start thinking crazy shit like Swedish meatballs are better, that’s like saying carbonarro made with bacon is better than carbonarra made with guanciale

The Evader Mutiny continues to evade.

This time he's evading his casino debts. Considering the new deals the NHL and teams are doing with gambling outfits, this won't go unnoticed. Will his laundry be found in a shallow grave somewhere in the Nevada desert?

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
