NEWARK. QUARTER FINALS Game 2

Today in modern sports, it has become increasingly popular to discredit the NHL, and to label it is as a fading organization. The notion that hockey is anything but a blood soaked frenzy for thug-like brutes, is false. Hockey is and always be for the working class. And while tickets to baseball and football games reach unforeseen price ranges, hockey seems to always ring true. It claims no tradition, but changes infrequently. It thoroughly and righteously encourages the use of bare knuckle fist fighting and toothlessness. It is true grit in the rarest form; on ice.

Central Florida. Disney World.

The calm, confounding, easiness of a spring day in Florida is most appreciated after a couple hard months in an unrelenting New York City winter.  However, approaching the turnstiles of any of the many major theme parks in this town, quickly offsets one’s composure, and aligns your capacity to grasp a million screaming, raving, rabid adolescence. Hard to believe a mere 18 years prior, I was one of this pack. Now as an adult, the fascination in a place like this, with it’s attention to fantastic detail, leaves none short of the presence of magic and indecency.
