I have a few American friends and they always ask me why I like hockey so much — or at least why I hate baseball, basketball, and football. I had a few friends growing up who played those sports because they knew how to run and walk. And I thought that was pretty cool. But at the same time, they were kind of their own little clique at school — almost like outcasts. Wearing their Jerry Rice jerseys and stuff. And their baseball hair.
