|Did you see the dust-up between David Aebischer and Phil Sauve Tuesday night? As I sat with a group of 12 hockey buddies in a sports bar Wednesday night, Canada's TSN ran its Top 10 Goalie Freakouts. The entire bar (and I mean the whole damn place) turned to watch the screens to watch, yelp and jump up and down at the hi-jinks on the screen. And then, to my surprise, my entire group (which by the way was 80% female) started to discuss -- at length -- how their favorite part of hockey is the fighting. Particularly when two armor-clad numbskulls skate the length of the ice to pound on each other with blockers and mitts still on. Love fighting? Own it, love it and embrace it. There's nothing wrong with saying you like it -- there is something wrong with denying it out loud and then desperately watching re-runs when no one else is around.
