ESPN Does Something Involving Hockey That Doesn't Completely Suck

Sixty Feet, Six Inches Correspondent IOctober 26, 2009

Recently I came across a video series on entitled, "The State of Play." In this series NHL analysts Scott Burnside and Pierre LeBrun sit down with Scott Gomez, Mike Komisarek, Paul Martin and Paul Stastny to discuss a wide variety of topics.

Since all the players are both NHLers and members of team USA the questions shift back and forth between NHL-based questions and ones concerning the upcoming Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

I know to most hockey fans there's an immediate apprehension to even clicking on this due to ESPN's coverage of hockey, but it's actually worth a watch. I'm not saying you should get your popcorn ready and sit down for what is, with advertising before every video, around 40 minutes of interview video.

Yet, if you're a hockey fan, an American or one interested in their national team and looking for something to do, it's worth filling your time. I'll give it three out of five yeahhhh boyeeeees for shits and giggles.

The videos can be viewed here
