I find it funny but many Canadians would call it blasphemy or unpatriotic, but I'm just not a hockey fan. I'll watch the occasional game, and I'll enjoy it, but I don't choose to watch hockey on my own. It's just not for me.
I'm an Aussie and I love watching the hockey but have trouble keeping track of the puck. Hockey and Aussie rules football have a lot in common. Speed, accuracy and a bit of biffo. What more could you want in a sport?
I used to live in Canada, but never really got into ice hockey, so I am right there with dgrwriting.
Now, I have a husband and a son who are mad sports fanatics. So I am assuming, if ice-hockey was telecast here in Australia, it would take some TV time in our household.
I find that amazing, because hockey is such a staple here, but at the same time I've never really thought about the fact that we rarely get UK football available for viewing and we never get Australian Football.
