Love Hockey? Love Soccer? What About ICE SOCCER!?

posted by Zac Blobner - 

VIA BARSATOOL:  First of all, I’d like to keep soccer as far the fuck away from  hockey as humanly possible. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy soccer every  4 years when the World Cup rolls around. And that I don’t appreciate  the skill it takes to play the game. With that being said, the last  thing I need in my life is for those flopping pussies to be anywhere  near a sheet of ice. We already have the Montreal Canadiens for that.

Flopping concerns aside, I think ice soccer has tons of potential.  Not for a sport I’d watch on tv or anything. But you round up the boys  on a Friday or Saturday and you can have yourselves a day. I’m trying to  figure out if this is a game you could toss back a few Molson’s while  playing. If you’re playing on foot, then absolutely not. You’re already  falling down enough as is. Just imagine running around out there after  gassing a few on the bench before your shift. But if you’re out there on  skates? I don’t see why not. But now we’re running into a separate  issue where you’re playing a sport that requires the players to kick  around sharp ass blades attached to the bottom of their feet. But that’s  what insurance is for.

I guess what I’m trying to say here is that the jury is still out on  ice soccer. A “don’t knock it ’till you try it” sort of thing. Could it  just end up being a silly little Instagram video? Sure. But could it  also end up being something much more? Probably not but maybe. And those  are my official thoughts on Ice Soccer. But yeah, let’s start with  lacing up some skates first.
