These guys are so crazy, it really should be a lot of fun to have the chance to pass a couple of days with them. Always doing different stuff, i don't know if this hockey thing was related to some kind of promotional campaign to the poker event or not, but even if it wasn't, it was something nice for them to do. And who would say they would score that many!

Yeah, these guys seem to have a lot of fun. I'm sure Negreanu played hockey at one point in his life. He just seem's like the kind of guy that was in to that, but then again maybe they all played and that's what brought about this challenge.

With all the outdoor rinks in the winter, not to mention all the road hockey, and ball hockey leagues here in Canada...it's hard not to play hockey growing up in Canada. If you didn't get enough as a kid then there's always the slow puck leagues one can join as an adult. ( no hitting, no slapshots) Not surprised to see Negreanu score on all his shots...the goalies didn't know how to play the angles right. It's hard to move fast with all that gear on so playin the angles is important...was fun watching. Bet they were both very tired at the end of it all.

well another pr campaign- what wouldn't you do for your sponsors. i guess if they told poker players to eat their poop publicly some would seriously consider this Big Smile well the prop bet was cool enough- at least they had a chance to try out the sport which they might have seen only on television before
