The NHL tried to take the fighting out of the game several years ago. They found out that they'd really rather have the players beating each other with fists than carving each other up with sticks. Hockey is a very agressive game, and fighting is an integral part of it. People who don't know the game think that the fighting is what makes the game, rather than the speed which the puck travels and how fast the players can skate compared to how fast a football or basketball player can run. Television also does not do hockey justice.

What a game! I think that the NCAA ought to really consider revamping the way they determine the national champion for football and this game is a good reason why. Maybe David will slay Goliath every once in a while. The hook and lateral play was amazing, and reminded me of the Miami/San Diego AFC Championship play which turned the game around for Miami. Kudos to Boise State.
