Hockey, which shall henceforth be referred to as Ice Hockey, was adapted from Field Hockey, which shall henceforth be referred to as Hockey, by British immigrants who found the lack of any real fields during winter slightly frustrating. They named the new game Ice Hockey. However, because using three syllables in one sentence proved too challenging for many big, burly Canadians, the word Ice was dropped. (Later, two syllables proved equally demanding, leading to the accepted pronounciation as: "ookh".)

Hockey (which I should have referred to as Ice Hockey.. I forgot, sorry!) is listed in the official program of the Winter Olympics as Ice Hockey, whereas Hockey (that's the other kind... on a field) is listed in the Summer Olympics (although I think I should refer to the Summer Olympics as the Olympics as they were, like Hockey.. that's Field Hockey, the original, and therefore there is no need to refer to them specifically by the time of year they are played), as Hockey. 60.242.144.152 00:44, May 7, 2013 (UTC) Iggyc61 (talk) 00:50, May 7, 2013 (UTC)

edit What happens if you lose ANY type of hockey(as long as you are american)

You get cancer and anyone who is on your team with cancer dies. Simple as that.

edit Canadian stereotype debunked

In the contrary, Canadians are not polite when they play on ice and the arena's seating gets wound up when the opponent teams fight. Canada sucks. I don't care you won the gold in Vancouver 2010.+ PotatoSmut 04:41, April 20, 2010 (UTC)

edit "IT"S ICE HOCKEY, NOT HOCKEY, IDIOTS!' - People who own a dictionary

No, it isn't. Ice hockey is the only hockey accepted as a real sport. Änjelajs (talk) 14:08, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

Sorry you can't afford a dictionary, Anjelajs. Perhaps you'd like to read what was written above again, slowly this time. The official names around the world, including the Olympics are Hockey and Ice Hockey. One is a derivative of the other. But if you'd like more proof, why not take in the Hockey World Cup Finals, in which TWENTY FOUR nations compete every four years. But don't strain your eyes trying to find the puck, or any ice! If you don't like it, become an IOC delegate and lobby to have the names changed, but I doubt that the European Hockey Federation, Hockey Australia, or any other national hockey body will be that keen to support you.

What I meant is the same as you say. Ice hockey is the only hockey. Sure, something called land hockey exists, but that's not to be counted as a real sport in my opinion. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.120.168.139 (talk • contribs)
Guys, sign your posts by typing ~~~~ (four tildes). Better yet, pick usernames if you want to hold court here. Better yet, if you want to debate whether ice hockey is hockey, do it at Wikipedia. This page is for discussing how to make the nearby article funnier--and discuss it with courtesy (even if you are hockey players). Cheers. Spıke ¬ 17:52 12-Apr-13

Of course. Many apologies (and I'm sure Anjelas just has field hockey mixed up with golf). 60.242.144.152 00:44, May 7, 2013 (UTC) 60.242.144.152 00:45, May 7, 2013 (UTC) Iggyc61 (talk) 00:50, May 7, 2013 (UTC)
