Ice Hockey
Recently back from the US. Went to a Rangers game at Madison Square Garden which was great entertainment.

Was just wondering if anyone had experience of UK games, and whether they were good or a bit shit compared to the full on US violence and razamataz?

Ta.

Chelmsford apparently got promoted last season, sitting 4th I think at present.

Might go over and watch one sunday evening if anyone wants a pop at the champ.

In the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), an under-21 league. They are a big draw.

Re: Ice Hockey
Bungo.... I answered you. If it’s the sport you like then yes you will still enjoy watching it, if it’s the atmosphere etc that comes with elite teams and rinks then obviously it doesn’t compare...

Re: Ice Hockey
Bit of confusion.....I’m talking about the Romford Raiders not Oakland!

'It’s a bit like a football watching novice going to see the El classico and then asking if Hornchurch v Aveley will be similar'.

Or...

By clever use of the right words, you could perhaps show that you understood they were not likely to be comparable, but instead ask of those that know, just how significant the difference between the two is?

Subtle distinction I grant you, but that's vocabulary for you.

Re: Ice Hockey
Wouldn't say I was a fan, if I had to choose a NHL team I would say Rangers but don't follow it at all. Couldn't tell you the last time I watched them or even checked their scores.

You will still see goals, big hits and the occasional fight but it won’t be like a packed MSG experience watching it. If you actually like watching the sport rather than the experience then no reason why you wouldn’t like going to see your local team.

I haven’t been to see the Raiders since they moved back into the new Rink, probably should.

The Miracle on Ice was a pretty good series against the Soviets

Re: Ice Hockey
My Dad played against them when they came to town. He has a photo of him saving a shot from Kharlamov.

You're right; rivalries with the US, Sweden, etc. just aren't the same.

It sounds weird but I almost miss having an evil opposition as a kid, when you would go up against the USSR nationally or the Red Army Team.

We were told crazy stories about their national team when we were young and playing.
