I don't normally speak up when someone's givin it to the dog, I just enjoy the show, but are you really gonna make a joke about gays and athletes and act all surprised when someone does not get it, then get all stats'y when dog makes joke about hockey? Really?<quoted text>
Except for the fact that 500,000 American play hockey. And except for the fact that as many Americans identify hockey as their favorite sport as they do basketball (Harris poll). And except for the millions of Americans who watch it on TV (Nielsen). And except for the fact that the last 23 Stanley Cup winners have been American teams, and in the last 23 championship series only 5 Canadian teams have made it that far ( ESPN.com ). And except for the fact that Americans make up 25% of NHL rosters and Europeans make up another 25%( Quanthockey.com ). You are a chimp (Sam I Am).
I looked up your Harris poll on favorite sport.
36% Pro football
13% college football
8% Auto Racing
5% Pro basketball
5% college basketball
Really? You're getting all offended over a hockey joke and gonna hang your hat on 5%?
And 500,000 playing hockey? Compare that to 17.5 million playing football(not including college and the pros). Lighten up.
