To quote my favorite NHL writer, John Buccigross, "The NHL is clearly a better sport than the NFL which is slow and plodding with very little action. It is a once a week culture based on large consumption of food, alcohol, and gambling.
There isn't a more accurate statement out there. Just because the hockey Gods blessed some players with good looks doesn't mean that's the reason all girls watch the sport. I like hockey because it's the greatest sport ever!
