This Is Why You Should Not Play Hockey, One Game’s Brutal Hit (YouTube Video)
So to be quite honest I never put the skates on to play any hockey as a kid. Even as a teenager the thought of playing hockey was just not on the list for a black kid from West Philly. It was basketball and baseball, football in grade school but “hell no, won’t go” to play hockey. Not the sport for me.
If you’re the parent of a child who is interested in lacing up the skates, play this video and you will change your mind about dropping little Tommy over at the ice skating rink. In fact you will probably do better letting him know that figure skating is a better sport for him. Even fathers, who sometimes think that figure skating is for girls will agree. No way Tommy is playing hockey.
“Chris Neil absolutely unloads on Johnny Boychuk,” said the announcer who was calling the game between the Ottawa Senators and the Boston Bruins. Um, I have to say this hit was even worse. I’ve seen football games where there weren’t any more brutal hits than this one.
This is no joke.
Remember, don’t watch it if you’re a mom and are thinking about hockey as a career for your kid. This will end any thoughts that plan.
