Why not hockey?

I was wondering why so many are disinterested in hockey. I just want to know why sports people don't watch hockey?

Is it becasue it has no major network coverage, including ESPN? Is it becuase you don't understand the rules of the game? Are you against fighting? Do you think it's just not a made for television sport?

Just doing a little research. Why don't you like hockey?

Did you know? Yes NHL play does start tomorrow.

  • Sarah Palin vs Joe Biden
  • Ohio State vs Wisconsin
  • NASCAR at Talladega

Oh yeah, almost forgot, like most, the return of the most un-cared about sport in the United States! The National Hockey League opens play tomorrow with the Tampa Bay Lightning against the New York Rangers from Prague, Czech Republic.  Yet you wouldn't hardly know it according to most sports sites. There had been little talk of the NHL on any sports stations. There is still no big TV contract for the sport and it's a shame.

I am looking forward to watching hockey tomorrow. I can't wait to see how Barry Melrose handles the new look Tampa Bay Lightning this year. I want to see the play of the #1 pick in the NHL draft Steven Stamkos. I am hoping for a resurgence from the MVP line of Vinny Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis and Vinny Prospal.

Just wondering if anyone else knew that the NHL actually started tomorrow.
