WHY #HOCKEYFIGHTSFASCISM ?
Why #hockeyfightsfascism? Why not? Hockey is a tough, hardnosed sport. We wear helmets and carry sticks. When we're bad we're sent to the penalty box - the sin bin - for 2, 4 or 10 minutes. What other sport jails its miscreants? In basketball, when a player fouls out, they get a rest on the bench. In soccer, ditto. In football, they often get to stay on the field. In bowling, the ball goes in the gutter, not the bowler.
Hockey's punishment scheme is unique. Hockey is best situated to take down a dangerous, fascistically oriented, narcissist and wanna be dictator like Donald Trump. Game misconduct - ten minutes in the sin bin for denying he lost the election. This, followed by, ejection from the game. So, my social media posts will contain #hockeyfightsfascism until he withdraws from the 2024 race or is defeated by the victorious forces of democracy and scientific enlightenment. www.amazon.com/HOW-WOMENS-HOCKEY-SAVED-WORLD/dp/B0BL58R1NL/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=
