No NHL, Therefore No Fighting

Too bad. I watched a good sized chunk of the NHL playoff game tonight between the Nashville Predators and the Winnipeg Jets. I tuned in as the first period was winding down and I made it to about a minute and a half into the third: there was a fight. Off went the television, seconds later -- just minutes ago.

This is why the National Hockey League cannot be sold to the masses. As my late dear mother used to say at times like this: "Bloody fighting." It's a refrain heard over North America, certainly in sports circles.

Goodbye NHL.
