Reasons the NHL is now better than the NBA
This classic piece appeared in OOB back in May 1999.  Enjoy!
* Higher shooting percentage in hockey... (HA!)
* Can shoot from ANYWHERE in hockey...
* More likely to hear "French" spoken in hockey interviews, but
"pardon my French" in hoops talk...
* Phrases "high sticking, checking, and icing" better than "3 seconds, technicals, and walking"
* Sharp blades don't have to be hidden from the refs in hockey...
* Hockey players make fun ESPN commercials in their spare time, NBAers make "fun babies..."
* Intricately painted masks instead of intricately painted hair...
* In the same line, ever see a hockey rebounder in a dress?
* Choking someone will merely bring time in that little box...
* The goal is much bigger, yet there is almost as much scoring...
* ZAMBONI vs. zit faced kid with push mop and towel
* Drawing blood never brings cries of AIDS transmission...
* That hockey arcade game (complete with "boo" button) is a lot
more fun than those lame basketball moving goal things...
* There is actually a HOCKEY team in DALLAS...(ouch)
* Foreign stars are ACTUALLY GOOD at playing hockey when they come to the US...
* In hockey they knock each-other's teeth out.  In the NBA, they knock their girlfriends' teeth out...
