blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: I Wonder If I'm About To Start News?

I Wonder If I'm About To Start News?



This was posted on youtube yesterday, and I just saw it on a blog out of New York. Yep, New York. So far less than 400 hits.

We've got two metroplex high schools in the Texas State High School Championship of hockey and there is a vicious cheap shot. (The clip actually has two angles.)  I hear references to "blood" and that kid isn't moving. If he was seriously hurt (and even if he wasn't), I'm not sure why this isn't being covered by the local media.

P.S. Hey, teammates, way to stand around and do nothing after one of your own just got killed.

Edit: About two hours later, Fox 4 and the Dallas Morning News have got a hold of this. I wonder how.

Edit: The video went viral but the original poster of it on youtube took it down. I found a different copy which seems a little shorter. (And the hit counts have changed.)

Edit @ 9:00 p.m.: Fox 4 News leads with this story. I'm pretty sure they meant to credit me for finding it but some technical error prevented it from happening.

Let them fight. It is hockey that is what you do. Hockey is rough and will put almost any other sport to shame in how rough it is. So let them go toe to toe. If they fall fight is over that is the rule.

The dad busting his butt is hilarious. Just looks like hockey to me?

Kid in blue was just getting a blindside cheap shot payback for the blindside cheap shot he gave the guy on the boards seconds earlier.

But seriously, these kids all need to learn how to fight in hockey. Toss the gloves and go toe to toe. None of this skating around taking passing shots bullcorn.

The kid that got hit laid down the first cheap shot on the boards...he should have known he had something coming.

This kind of violence should not be allowed in high school hockey! The ref was just skating around doing nothing? These ARE KIDS!

Really violence in High School? Hockey, Football and wrestling ( brain fart forgot those to not involve contact). If they want to play a sport that is rough then they need to learn. Stop making sports suck like patty cake patty cake. OMG

Sounds like the DISD school board and the battle over turf and the number of coaches to keep. Lets dike it out and see who wins.

An indictment on our society, perhaps.

I believe we are supposed to be a conservative, christian, respectful, honorable, and just society.
