Why ice hockey is nice hockey

Not that I’m a big fan of the sport.

Or even a little fan. The action is all a bit too fast for me to keep up with it. And all those big sticks and burly characters in full-face helmets: wel, it’s a bit scary, isn’t it?

And that’s just the women!

But one thing I did notice whilst accidentally watching a couple of minutes of an ice hockey final at the Sochi Winter Olympics:

Unlike football, which has a history littered with hooliganism, you never hear of a pitch invasion after an ice hockey match. I wonder why not 🙂
