I’m not happy that the month of August has so little hockey news, yet I’ve no right to complain. I’m pretty fortunate to follow a sport that entertains me for ten months of the year.
What if, as a child, I’d fallen in love with the biathlon instead? The biathlon is a wonderful winter sport that combines cross-country skiing with rifle shooting, but the IBU gets almost no media coverage compared to the NHL. And I’d have had to write to Santa asking for a big box of .22-calibre Long Rifle rimfire.
