Sometimes you just gotta say, "what the puck?"

I've repeatedly stated that I have no interest whatsoever in sports. I just must have been born without the sports gene or something. Yet twice in the last couple weeks, I've written about hockey -- major-league and minor-league hockey, and a high school hockey team.

Maybe I should just give in to it, embrace my inner Joe Sixpack and learn to accept things.

Or maybe not.

Then again, I do feel this powerful urge to belch and scratch...

Oh, if you do body check a co-worker sitting in bathroom stall for 2 minutes doesn't really make things better. Theyy still frown on body checking as a form of feedback in most workplaces. Least that's the way the police explained it to me. Hehe, deja vu...

Not to worry, Jay -- like you, I am a grown male who seems to lack this "sports gene" too. Whenever guys at work start talking about the Game or the Playoffs or such, my eyes get real round and I just sort of back away.

Hey, you don't need to be into sports to belch and scratch - that's a typical male thing anyway.
