Well, first off, there’s more teeth in baseball. Also, less consonants. In fantasy hockey, it seems like everyone’s name is Marc Rzepczynski. Hockey also makes for better video games. Or at least it did the last time I played video games — 1994 EA NHL on Sega Genesis. That’s pretty much all I know of hockey. In fantasy hockey, is “one-timers” a category? Does Wayne Gretzky still bleed if you check him really hard? Are Alexander Mogilny and Pavel Bure still ridiculously fast? I’m used to a lot of foreign players in baseball but usually from places with good food. You could count the number of good dishes in Russian, Canadian, Czech, Slovakian, and Scandanavian cuisine with the fingers on one of Joey Kocur’s mangled hands (Rudy gets the assist on that joke). Blech. If I wrote about fantasy hockey, I’d have to brush off some Eastern European jokes and might end up sounding like Yakov Smirnoff. For all I know, Yakov Smirnoff is a name of a hockey player. In Soviet Russia, fantasy hockey plays you! But, you know what? It doesn’t matter what I know of hockey, because I’m not writing about it, but someone else is over at our sister Razzball site — It’s fantasy hockey, ya’ll!
That’s right, just when you thought Razzball couldn’t get any more awesome (if you consider this awesome — if you’re indifferent, then just ignore this post.). Wanna know how great/awful that player is with the last name you can’t pronounce? Wanna see some fantasy hockey rankings? Wanna enjoy the incongruity of using the name Razzball for a sport that, like a eunuch, is ball-less? Wanna just read about hockey even though you have no interest in it whatsoever? That’s the spirit! I’m sure all you’ve grown to love about fantasy baseball here will be rolled up into a big ball of ice and quadrupled over at Razzball Hockey. So go there now, and tell ‘em Grey sent ya!
