Also, I <3 Derek Boogaard. The little self-deprecating grin he gave the crowd when they called him out for the last two minutes: beautiful.
Other things I <3: hockey fans. The whole stadium chanting, "Bullshit, bullshit, bullshit!" always makes me obscurely happy.
(The refs and the Ducks, on the other hand, have exactly none of my respect. I am not anti-fighting in hockey -- it's a full-contact physical sport. But there are limits; there have to be. And the refs -- utterly ridiculous. They may as well have put on Ducks sweaters in the first period and worn them throughout. Honestly.)
