If you don’t think hockey isn’t the most grueling sport, you’re an idiot.
Any other sport, like football, if you broke your pinky you would quit playing and be out for half of the season. A player on the Dallas Stars tonight passed out on the bench (possibly due to cardiac arrest) and when he came to, he asked how much time was left in the period so that he could get back on the ice.
On the other hand, players have lost teeth like crazy and are back out on the ice after 5 minutes, same goes for stitches.
So much respect for those athletes that make less than others and still go out there with heart every night because they love the sport they play.
Is our generation too blind to see true beauty lies beneath the skin? So ignorant!
