Things That Are Better Back Home Cont'd


Hockey is played on ice. The players wear padded shorts and sweaters. The object in play is a rubbery disc called a puck. The players are often toothless men named "Guy" or "Jacques." One need not specify that this game is "ice hockey."

Hockey is not played on grass. It is not played with a ball. Skirts are never part of the hockey wardrobe. If any of those things are true of the game you are playing, it should be properly called "field hockey."

That is all.
