The ice surface is larger in Europe and the Olympics than in the National Hockey League. Other than that the rules are the same, not having seen any ice except in my drinks in Australia I cannot comment on their brand of hockey. If it is anything like their football it must be really fun.

I was drinking in a bar late one night, and there was the usual brawl going on in the back. Throwing things, eye gouging, biting, it was brutal. However, it really got violent after a hockey game broke out.

Ha ha! You ornery scamp! Anyway, for those who didn't take the WP, the answer would be, "No one can say for certain."

Hi David,
Well, in the context of my post, I intended "ornery scamp" as sort of gentle teasing, and I hope it came across that way. An "ornery scamp" can be many things, depending on the context, but in this case, I meant a good-natured, humorous, mischievous rascal ... you know, someone who often makes references to Renaissance art figures.

A standard ice hockey puck is black, 1 inch thick (25.4 mm), 3 inches in diameter (76.2 mm), and weighs between 5.5 and 6 ounces (156-170 g). The game evolved in Great Britain by 1820. but the puck was created by someone is canada and i dont know the name.

According to the OED, the name puck may come from the verb to puck or poke used in hurling. It is believed to be derived from the Scottish Gaelic "puc" or Irish "poc". The early form of hockey was called Canadian Rules Bandy and used the ruber ball used in field hockey. The ball was too bouncy and they cut off the top and bottom - hence the shape of todays' hockey puck.

I believe Rjenson's version of the facts.
When first born, I think they're called puckerheads.

I haven't been on the site in a couple of days (reading a really good book), but Ron, your response to Al is an example of why I am so addicted to Sploofus. ROFL!!!

I just finished "Little Big Man" by Thomas Berger. It was recommended by Eesusbejesus in another thread. I've never seen the movie, but I can't imagine it could be as good as the book.

Thanks, I've heard of the movie. I'll have to check out the book to see if it's something I'd like.
