    Well having just moved to DC from NC I think hocky fits in just fine

    as i said before, men beating the snot out of each other with sticks, sounds like a version of wrestling to me.

    PlannerGirl: Maybe if the players all wore PVC we could convince you of hockey's merits?

    Dan - in all fairness, Winnipeg should get the Coyotes, seeing as that's where they are originally from...

    Rinks

    Until I get my degree in a year or so, I'm working for my city's recreation dept. at the municipal ice rink. Yes, I am a zamboni driver, and yes, it is enjoyable until you crash into the boards or run over a puck.

    From what I hear, the city pumps a lot of money into the facility, and makes a killing off of selling the ice. Too bad the profits from the rink go to cover the losses of the city's pools!

    If I could find them, I 'll post my pictures of the ice making and painting the ice. Few people know how much work goes into making a few inches of ice!

    Do things we used to do count? If so how about this one. I used to operate a huge end loader, powered by a V-12 detroit diesel engine. The bucket held 110 bushels of corn. I loaded 1,000,000 bushels on to trains that summer. Is that rugged enough?

    You are a GOD!

    I'm surprised they gave you such a hard time coming into Canada - maybe they thought you were going to steal our ice-making secrets...

    I ask the questions around here, Private! Do you think you're smart? Do you think you're funny?

    (Hey, it's just an experiment. I"ll probably change it to something else tonight.)

    Sir, no sir! The private feels that if he reverses himself the Cyburbia Administrator will become even more angry with him!

    Sorry I'm late on this one.

    Yes Giff, anything that has to do with a V12 engine is quite rugged, even if it involves "corn." We all know what that is code for, eh?. Wink wink, nudge, nudge, know what I mean, know what I mean!

    Geez, here in Iowa, just about everything involves corn in one way or another. You know your machine is rugged when there are warning stickers advising wearing "hearing protection devices required"

    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.
