I don’t know anything about hockey.
Well, this instinctive thought is not entirely true: I know it’s like soccer, but players have to make goals by sending a puck—not a ball—in the net, and they have to move this puck around using a stick, instead of kicking it with their feet. Oh, and in the case of ice hockey, they have to skate on ice, instead of running. And they wear a lot of protections that look quite uncomfortable. That’s all I know.
I never cared very much about hockey. In my home country, Italy, it isn’t very popular. And even though I grew up in the Chisone Valley, where the Olympic Winter Games took place in 2006, and where there is, in the nearby Pellice Valley, an ice hockey team named HC Valpellice Bulldogs, I still just wasn’t exposed to it and didn’t think about it.
