In a guest essay for Time magazine, film director Kevin Smith argues eloquently on behalf of a sport too often overlooked in the United States, hockey. One of the best things about hockey, he writes, is that “at any moment, someone might try to punch someone else in the face. … Hockey is a graceful but aggressive game that can elevate to and just as quickly retreat from physical hostilities at the drop of a puck. … And yet they’re all the nicest and most polite/least in-trouble athletes of the sports community.”
