Peace and Love

So i've found it, the one thing you are sure never to see again in a hockey game. Yes there is also a fight taking place but lets take a look at this remarkable display of affection for the opposing team. Looks like there is a soft side to even those dominating the sport of hockey.

My posts

The kind of posts you may see from me in the future may consist of obscure information. For example we can take a look at Clay Travis's blogging at Deadspin. It is all about the NHL and current news that he has written, one post that I would hope to be able to mimic in type of content in the future. The post is about hockey players with bigger heads having more penalty minutes. A very intriguing topic and guaranteed to be original. I strive to be this unique with my own blog.

Sure I could have named my hockey blog after my favorite NHL team, a play off the word puck, and even a more known aspect of hockey like the slap shot. Instead I choose the single best part of hockey. A part that is not recognized as much as a sweet diddle by Zetterburg or as much as a half kneeling snap shot by Ovechkin but a part that will absolutely send the crowd into a roar, a hip check.
There may be some general statistics on hitting and being a basher out there but not nearly as popular as a snipe or a fine twiner. Leading to the point of my naming
the blog Hip Check Hockey. It is named this because the blog wont be focusing on statistics but rather on things like your swag on the ice. I will post my personal opinions on things like hockey equiptment and anything else that is not swamping the headlines of ESPN. You can count on me for anything hockey but I will try and stay away from main stream as possible.
