Sports Bio

Anyone that's read my posts knows I'm a diehard Detroit homer. The most memorable sporting event I've attended was game 4 of the 1997 Stanley Cup Finals. I had already been very lucky scoring playoff tickets that year, seeing game 1 of round one vs. St. Louis, the triple-OT game in Detroit vs. Anaheim, and watching the Wings paste Colorado 6-0 on home ice. But to see my life-long dream of my Detroit Red Wings finally put an end to the 42-year curse was better than any other moment in my sports life...and yes, I cried like a five-year-old girl with a skinned knee when Stevie Y. finally got to hoist the Cup...

Tayshaun prince block of Reggie Miller in Eastern Conference finals. 2004

That was my knee-jerk reaction, as well. Prince's block was a bit more difficult, IMO, but LBJ's is worlds more important. Prince's was in game 2 of the series, not game 7...

So, going back to the video that Mr. B posted upstream, if this would've happened on the other side of the ice and the guy with the stick in skate scored a goal with that stick, would it have counted? He clearly would have to use a distinct kicking motion to get a shot off with that particular stick.

I'd think that because the puck went in off of a stick, as opposed to a skate, the "distinct kicking motion" rule would not be in effect, and it would be a goal...
