Why play like you have Alzheimer's when you can play dead like the Gipper?

 

Too soon?

While we are waiting for way too many days to go by before hockey returns; Does anybody have any experience playing broom ball, or is that a lame sport that should not be mentioned in the same thread?  I'm trying to come up with an ice sport that is accessible to the skating impaired. It is astonishing to me how many of my kids' friends have never skated, and don't own skates. We live in New England; I always thought that skates were a  standard  childhood item, like a bike or four-square ball, but apparently not. 

In the meantime, pond ice is gonna be good this week.  Already went out for about 45 minutes this morning. More fun than the gym...

My wife can't skate but her family is lazy.  Can't believe there are that many kids in NE who don't skate.  Wow.

 

I have no experience with either of those sports.  Conceivably one could play hockey on ice without skates, though.  Sort of... floor ice hockey.

That'd be pretty dangerous to be honest. It's really easy to fall like that, and falling on ice....hurts. A lot.

It sure does.  But so does falling on ice skates.  Also broomball is played without skates.  

 

Presumably you'd alter the puck to have a bit more friction to slow it down (or just use a ball) and put something on your shoes to add more grip.

 

In other words, what's your point? /Myt1

Played it in college on the pond behind our dorm.  We used one of the basketballs from the Pop-a-shot.  We had a blast with it since none of us had our skates with us from home.  I think over the course of the one winter we played it regularly we ended up with only one concussion and one broken bone.  So no real safety issues.  I recommend it for folks who are either skating challenged or can't get to their blades.

 I think that unless kids get involved in hockey, many families just don't bother with skating for the fun of it. More evidence of the world going to hell in a handbasket.  Even if they do, many parents won't let their kids out on ponds. If you have a backyard rink it's no big deal, but if you depend on the local rink for ice, that sucks because public rink skating is a whole lot of crowded circles.

Broomball: Yes, you use a dense foam type ball.  I think that if you are a skater, it's bound to look stupid, because it is essentially molasses hockey.  But on the other hand, its cheaper, and you don't have to know how to skate to play it so it gives non-skaters something to do on the ice. And plus, co-ed leagues.

Goalie last 3 years.  Fun game.  Never skated as a kid, but broomball is fun.  Looking to upgrade to hockey though soon.

 

The really important thing is that broomball is usually played at the end of the night, but before the ice is cleaned.  The ice is pretty choppy, making the surface just frictiony enough to not suck.  There were a couple nights where teams didn't practice because of the holidays that were rough, but for the most part, there's not a lot of falling down.

HackswithHaggs: Bruins recall Ryan Spooner & he'll be on trip to Montreal. Have to assume things arent looking good for Marchand's availability

 

DanCagen: Spooner coming up is likely an indication Marchand or Paille will not play Wednesday.

I realized last night that Superman probably uses The Implication to get laid. Like he rescues a chick and then flies up to the clouds with her and then he suggests sex while they're miles up in the air. There's no way she says no because he could totally drop her
It's the implication of the situation
 
So, Superman is an American Hero
 
and a rapist.

Do you think her fallopian tubes could handle his sperm? I guarantee you that when he comes during sex, he probally blows a load like a shotgun blast... right through her back! And if by chance Lois does get pregnent, what about her womb? Do you think it's strong enough to carry his child? He's an alien, for Christ sake. His Kyrptonian biological makeup is enhanced by earth's yellow sun. If Lois gets a tan, the kid could kick right through her stomach. Only someone like Wonder Woman has a strong enough uterus to carry his kid. The only way Superman could bang regular chicks is if he does it with a kryptonite condom, but that would probaly kill him!

So this is just for a bunch of 12 year olds- do you think that I could get a bunch of $2.99 actual brooms from Building 19 and some sort of little soccer ball, and it'll still be entertaining? Shitty ice--hmmm. I won't be able to use the Homeboni. a disappointment for sure. 

 

Clearly none of you read the Twilight series (for which I salute you), in which the biological implications of human/alien reproduction were thoroughly explored.  The answer is for Superman to make Lois a vampire before she goes into labor.

If he's that fast, maybe the guy has to worry about ready, fire, aim problems. Which brings us back to the kryptonite condoms.

Anyway, all I was saying is that there is a viable, scientifically proven method of carrying a half-alien baby to term if you are worried about it punching its way out rather than the more usual methods.  You don't necessarily need to resort to Wonder Woman's Wondrous Womb.

It did. First he turned his wife into a vampire, then once she was undead he ripped the little critter out with force. I think. I'm not going to go check though, because then the shame would only increase. 

Edit: I didn't get the joke, but it was funny at face value thank god. I figure 80% of the remarks in here go straight over my head anyways.
