Chalk up two for the Giants

The Belfast Giants hockey team have been adopted in our house as the unofficial hockey team of summer. Last night they won their second game 2-1 OT. What's remarkable about this is the system the fans have of posting the game to the Internet.

Because the game is neither on TV, the Internet or the radio, the fans at the away games post results to their cells. In one such post yesterday, they described the first fight of the game as resembling two old women having at it with their handbags. In another, they described the game being delayed as home-town fans and visiting fans fought over pork sandwiches.

That's why sports writing is so fun. There is so much imagery.

There's only 13 days till preseason. Drop the puck already.
