As we said in our Practical Rundown of Every Winter Olympic Event, hockey is the only sport even more synonymous with Canada than curling. Hockey really is the only reason to watch the Winter Olympics, other than the non-jailbait hot chicks in curling. Hockey is the purest example of a sport in the Winter Olympics, and not just because it passes J-Dubs’ test for what is and isn’t a sport. Hockey is not only one of the four major-league American sports, it is also a world sport as well. That’s important because it’s status as a world sport means it isn’t something that we Americans forced down the Olympic committee’s throat, like all that snowboarding bullshit.
Having said that, we here at Sports Blog Movement are out to give you a heads up on this world version of hockey; you will see a lot of familiar names from the NHL, but in some cases they will be playing for countries because you might not have ever heard of. That’s also why J-Dub partnered on this with SBM’s resident Canadian to offer insights on this event. After all, it is their national sport.
