Thought of the day

The last two minutes in close games by sport:

Baseball: Can’t really go by time, but one swing can change everything in the 9th. It’s quality.
Football: Sometimes good. Often it’s just kneeling.
Basketball: It’s team time outs, commercial time outs, more team time outs, different kinds of time outs, more commercial breaks, free throws, free throws, free throws, time out, time out, time out, free throw, commercial, free throw, commercial. Awful. Just awful.
Hockey: Utterly exciting. When can they pull the goalie? There’s such a flurry of action in front of the net! He rung the post! He tied the game! It’s the best two minutes in sports.

Really. How can anyone not love hockey?
