THE BEAUTY AND THE BEASTS

by Ron Spence

Theresa Ferries, author of the great blog, The State of Hockey News,  writes about Ice Girls:

“Combining the best sport around with scantily clad women. There’s so much about hockey that’s unique. Why do you wish for hockey to become more and more like the National Football League or the National Basketball Association?”

Theresa expresses that same outrage as some of my good buddies, who have been turned off of hockey because of the shootout.

NHL hockey, today, isn’t the same game that I watched on CBC televison during the early 1970s – thank God.

It’s better. And there have been changes.

The Ice Girls aren’t acting like Ring Girls at an Ultimate Fighting match.

I don’t think that they are poor role models for my granddaughters, who attend games.

How can anyone be offended by a young lady scraping off the ice, after two Enforcers have just duked it out?

What offends me the most are the players who dive.

Who, or what, should others be offended by? I don’t know.

It’s hockey, Jake.
