‘It’s hockey’


 

More reporting on Fightin’ Floyd of the Northwest.

Darcy Milkowski refereed the game and said he was watching the play go the other way when the fight began. “The guys had already dropped the gloves and were squaring off,” he said.

Milkowski said the game had become chippy midway through the first period. “The two guys were at each other a little bit, picking here and picking there,” he said.

He said a couple of punches were thrown and both players ended up on the ice before they were separated. “They were beaking off to each other on their way to the dressing rooms,” he said. “But nothing came of it after that.”

Silly question. Would Stephane Dion be prime minister right now if he’d managed to get suspended for fighting in a rec hockey league game?


 

‘It’s hockey’

  1. Hell, would Stephane Dion be prime minister right now if he played rec. league hockey?

    Answer: Probably not.

  2. Sure, Dion suffered from an image problem. But it was his competence problem that did him in. No amount of hockey posturing could have saved him from that.

  3. Re: “Would Stephane Dion be prime minister right now if he’d managed to get suspended for fighting in a rec hockey league game?”

    If he became PM due to something like this it would be a sad commentary on the country. Then again, Harper is PM and I have yet to see any video of him skating (although apparently he is still working on that bloody hockey book… and has been for years).

  4. How journalistic with all kinds of integrity here – open the lines for partisan snipes and for gosh sakes, don’t leave Dion alone.

    It’s over – didn’t you get the memo?
