Yes, British Ice Hockey is a Thing

Not on the same level as you North Americans or various other European nations, but at £8.50 entry I cannot complain and still good fun (my local team has scored 16 goals in two games I’ve attended!).

One thing I have always failed to understand is the fighting aspect. Is it tradition? Too dangerous for the refs to break up on the ice? Apologies, most of my knowledge was thanks to NHL 04 way back on the PS2. 

They also sing the national anthem, unheard of in the more popular national sports leagues in the UK, that was pretty cool.

Oh well, something different for a Sunday! I would go to church, but there’s too much violence for me 😉
