I like ice hockey. We watched the Shark's game on TV, but I understand it is better in person. My granddaughter went to the Shark's game with two friends to see the game, live. My granddaughter's friend's father and brother play ice hockey. It's a rough game!

What we in Britain understand as Hockey is vastly different to how it's seen in the US, Canada &c. For us, Hockey means Grass Hockey, which is or has been extensively played within the private school system (known as public schools in the UK and elsewhere) by boys and girls alike. We describe the US/Canadian &c. variant as Ice Hockey, about which next to nothing is known on this side of the Atlantic other than its popularity far exceeds our own grass-based counterpart. My Canadian cousin is a fan of the Vancouver Canucks; so that would make me a nominal Canucks fan too.

No. I don't dislike sports, but I don't find most of them particularly interesting.

We have that in the US, too. It's called field hockey. Though I think it's mostly girls who play it. We call the other kind ice hockey, too.

My home city has two ice hockey teams including the oldest professional ice hockey team in the UK (to go alongside having the oldest professional football teams in the world smiley:::smile) and I always assumed that most UK cities had one too, but Wikipedia suggests it's still a pretty niche sport, with (as far as I can see) only twenty professional teams nationwide.

Hockey is about the most boring sport to watch. Of course I don't watch any sports.

Yes, in some respect. Especially when I have free tickets to see a game at the Devil Bell Centre or at the finals when the Habs are playing.

No, I hate hockey.
According to some that makes me a poor excuse for a Canadian, but oh well!

Oh, right; in the UK, grass hockey is much more associated with girls than boys; but traditionally it's a standard game for boys too within the public (private) school system, along with Rugby Football, and Cricket.

Really? Cool. Yes, like baseball still very much a niche sport in the UK.

I think in the US boys are more likely to play lacrosse as a sort of similarly obscure but still rather popular sport. I don't think the sports are limited to private schools, though I think they are more common at them.

Not really a fan, but I have watched a few games. I went to a couple games at the college I went to and enjoyed them.

I do like sports. (Maybe slightly nsfw for one bit of language)
