“Toughness of Hockey: versus Football” Introduction: Attention: Who here has played football (in their life /H.S.)? In today’s society, football is a very highly advertised/praised/desired sport. Eleven players, trying to run or throw a ball to the opposite end of the field, great (sarcasm). Considering that you’ve played football in your life, you probably never had the time to play a faster, tougher , more exciting sport like Ice Hockey. Purpose/Credibility : Having played hockey since I was ten years old to about a month ago and having played tackle football numerous times without equipment, I’m going to prove to you that Ice hockey is a tougher sport then football. Central Idea : Ice Hockey is a sport that barely gets any recognition, but if it had nearly as many fans/advertisements as football, it would be bigger then Football in the world of sports. Preview of Points : Need : Due to the NHL Lockout in 2004 (where the whole hockey season was literally cancelled), there have been less people interested in Ice Hockey . Satisfaction : The more intensity loving spectators/players (male or female, and Yes I said female) involved with Ice Hockey, the bigger/faster the sport will grow. More people will realize that hockey is a tougher sport then football . Visualization : Picture this, if you become a hockey fan and a football fan, like myself, you can watch high speed, high intensity action from the month of October all the way through the month of April, including playoffs. Now, picture yourself actually playing the sport, as a professional, on television. This will help you visualize and understand its dangers and difficulty a lot more. Action : (Do yourself a favor), try playing or watching hockey just once in your life. Whether its kids/pros playing roller hockey or ice hockey, you’ll see for yourself just how tough it is. Transition : Although hockey isn’t nearly as advertised as football, I strongly believe that Ice Hockey is unquestionably --- a tougher sport ---- then football, and soon enough you’ll know what I mean.
