Lets get ready to rumble?

Quote:
Manitoba promoter, Darryl Wolski, is putting together a pay-per-view event featuring hockey fights. Without getting bogged down in any silliness like goals or passes or saves.

Wolski's 32-man field -- culled from over 300 applicants and headlined by such C-List luminaries as Link "The Missing Link" Gaetz and Dwight "The Animal" Bialowas -- will compete in 90-second bouts, with a panel of judges selecting a winner on the basis of criteria like punches thrown and crowd response.

The tournament's format calls for two combatants, dressed in full gear, to skate to center ice. After a referee drops a puck -- why that's necessary isn't clear -- the two will square off, remove their helmets and gloves and set about pummeling one another.
Now I don't mind fighting in hockey at all, but this is just imbecilic. As if the game isn't already considered a joke by so many people.

Hockey already has enough negative sterotypes against it...
