Hockey's expensive.

I saw many foreigners wondering why soccer (Football to you Europeans) is not popular in the US and Canada given the insane number of kids playing it. But in North America, soccer is poor man's hockey.

I'm disapointed. I counted and this is *not* a haiku. :)

Professional Soccer is not popular in North America. Most of us don't care at all about the World Cup. What's really popular here is hockey (and in the US also Baseball, for reasons that elude the rest of the planet).

However, *playing* Soccer is really, really popular for kids because it's very cheap to play compared to hockey.

So North American kids play a lot of soccer but people want to watch hockey.

I know the rules and know how to skate, and would love to play... it's just not a big thing.

I don't play ice hockey, but it is my favorite sport to watch.

I ski, so that counts as a winter sport, sadly it's been several years since I have gone simply due to the cost of it and not wanting to feel like I've been ripped off.

Love hockey, use to play, should have taken it more seriously as some of my friends said I was a very solid d-man/winger.  Plus I was tall and could grind and bang.

The last 15 years or so I have officiated hockey, did some fairly high levels considered elite hockey - midget AAA, Jr. B even had the chance at Jr. A as a linesman (mainly that is all I am just a f...... linesman).  I am a level 3L in Canada where Hockey Canada has a 6 level system.  But I am winding down my career as an on ice official.

Want to get back into coaching - 10 years ago helped coach a team to the triple crown - reg season champs, provincial champs, and playoff champs.....it was easy, the team was very stacked for Bantam AA tier 2.  The next year coaching Midget AA tier 2 didn't go as well, we struggled all year, but it was still successful seeing some players develop and become better.

I'm brand new here and I've been looking around trying to find people interested in hockey since I play it and basically nothing else. Anytime anyone wants to talk about I'll be there because it's my favorite thing to do and I play on 3 different teams. I know this hasn't been posted on in forever but I thought it looked like a good conversation with some interesting people
