Physique, Tactics and Technique all factors that come into play with sports, so examining Hockey vs Soccer:
Technique, well a soccer player does have to tun and dribble the ball past an opposing player so that requires some technique and the goalie must stop the ball being kicked at him at on average 67 MPH but a hockey player is skating on thin blades on a slippery surface while passing a tiny puck ( a puck is usually passed at between 30 and 60 mph). A Hockey goalie must stop a tiny puck that has been known to be shot at 105.9 MPH ( Zdero Chara), so that takes a little bit of concentration, agility and strength I do believe.
Tactics, well from a girl point of view, Soccer players cry a lot, Hockey players fight a lot, that’s it, that’s all Don’t ya think…..

Well damn, ain’t that a difficult choice….well moving on we Canadians take our Hockey seriously and we like to not only have players with amazing skills apparently we like to grow them really cute. Case in point, Thunder Bay, Ontario… I know, WHERE…… a small town of 108000 in Northern Ontario. Go to Minneapolis, head to Duluth, then to Lutsen and keep going there ya go. Right on lake Superior. Well this town of 108000 , has 50 boys/men playing hockey or have played in the NHL and here is just a small sample of those players.

need i say more….. so that is why I like hockey better and quite possibly also the explaination of why I bagged me a Thunder Bay Boy.
Happy Friday peeps and to end the day with my usual, a rainy day outfit to take you into the weekend.
All GIFS and pictures of gorgeous Hockey Players are not mine and I cannot take any credit for them. Many are from sports sites and google, and I know that is not appropriate credit but I hope i can be forgiven this time.
