1. Hockey players are tough SOB's! I'm always amazed at how a guy can have 20 teeth knocked out, his eye hanging from its socket, and a dislocated knee, and then return for his next shift!
2. Us feeble coach potatoes and athletes from most other sports could never handle the rigours of the NHL, let alone a cold bath. I'm sorry, but I like my showers hot and my face free of stitches.
