Few things in this world top a really good hockey fight.
See, really good fights are rare in hockey. If you think about it, when you're on the ice and grabbing at a person—who is also grabbing at you—it's not easy to get a steady footing to throw a good punch.
However, every now and again, you will see a really good hockey fight.
This was one such fight. What's more, it was made better by the announcers and overall presentation on the broadcast.
The Tale of the Tape was an excellent touch.
Brian McGrattan was the clear winner of the fight, but Jay Rosehill must be commended for giving it his all.
The early rounds were clearly in McGrattan's favor, but Rosehill managed to stay on his feet and avoid the knockout.
With it abundantly clear that the points were going to his opponent, Rosehill made a nice comeback in the middle rounds. However, he was too far down in points to make a serious comeback without scoring a TKO.
As you can see, that knockout never came. The two men fought to a draw in the later rounds and the fight went to McGrattan.
This is actually an interesting way to get Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. together. Forget about money and blood testing, put them on ice and have them go at it for 12 rounds.
I'm thinking outside the box here, folks.
Now that I think about it, a hockey fight is a good way to settle any dispute.
However, for now, we'll have to settle for hockey fights between hockey players. As long as we get ones like this, we'll be just fine.
