 I think that was what rux was referring to. Then again it may have been even more warped and depraved.

 

 Wait a minute, you guys don't know what ball hockey is? Cause I know for sure they have a league in Philly, and thought they did in Ohio as well.

Yeah I play street hockey in the neighbors drive with a bunch of old fat guys and all of kids, using a ball. I have tried bringing pucks but they do not translate as well as they should.

I just thought ball hockey, pocket pool, sounded about right to me. damn I hate when I have to explain my jokes. I really need to work on that.

 I got the joke.

 

 We have a pretty big organized league of ball hockey with 4 "rinks" here. We've sent teams or hosted world championships. Obviously it's pretty competetive, and a lot of fun. The team I'm on is awesome in the fourth period.

@flyercanuck  That is great you are doing so much cardio!  I miss running so much. You don't even think twice about it, till it's abruptly taken away. I often would run a few miles in morning, pre knee injury. I would get into this mode where you can't even really feel you feet touch the ground, just total bliss. Miss ball hockey also, we had some great battles. Adam Graves, Joe Kocur a number of NHL players showed up back in the day. Graves was untouchable, he was so skilled and fast you could never get the ball off his stick, even if you guess and totally over commit to one area. Kocur was like a bull in a china shop, but that guy had a devastating ball hockey shot, so good he wished it there and the goalie could do nothing about it.

      I'm old enough to remember the series (barely). The one thing that's always bothered me is the way Clarke gets badmouthed now about his slash...OK, axe-swing, on Karmalov. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOMJsJhHlyM I don't recall a single person back in the cold war days saying anything bad about it. On the contrary, most people thought it was great. Threat of nuclear holocaust will have that effect. Now, all the "politically correct" douchebags say things like "he should be locked up for that

      The reason Kharlamov was so good was because he played with Petrov and Mikhailov on the same line. I think Kharalomov's skill was definitely increased by that fact. Still, he is probably the greatest forward to never play in the NHL.

      1972 Summit series: One thing to keep in mind, the Soviet players were all a part of the military. The life they lived was brutal and hockey 24/7 11 months a year BUT the alternative was to fail and get cut from the team and end up driving a tank in Afghanistan. (Okay Afghanistan was a few years into the USSR future but you get the point.) The USSR had a solid mix of forwards with varying degrees of skill but an amazing amount of collective talent. The defense was thin and not rugged, the mo

      @flyercanuck  I think we are the best also. No ego involved, but somebody has to be the best, other countries will knock us off our perch, it's inevitable.  The USA closes the gap every year, but we are still the best. I expect the Swedes and Russians to ice some wicked teams in the coming Olympics. Ditto for the Chezh's and USA. Canada still makes up over 50% of the NHL players and I don't see any Olympic teams that have Canada's depth. Cept the goaltending....which is more of a cyclical thing
