'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?
