In An Effort To Boost Attendance NHL Changes Rules

It's no secret that hockey is suffering some growing pains. Perhaps maybe more accurately, a lack of growth pains. Attendance has slipped significantly and fans are just following the sport.

Part of the decline is based on silly rules. Hockey is the only sport that is split into thirds. Three periods constitute a game where most others have 2 or 4 periods of play separated by a halftime. Baseball is the exception, but nobody watches that anyway.

We spoke to NHL President Lumpy LeFluer about the changes. "No more will the game be 3 one third periods. Like all the other sports, the periods need to be separated. Now it will be 2 one thirds separated by a semi colon." LeFluer two handed slapped his head, threw off his shirt, and punched our reporter in the eye before exiting.

Another change will be the introduction of kicking. Everybody likes kicking. Kicks may not be placed to the back of the head unless the player is already face down on the ice. The third man in rule has been changed as well. The third man in is now mandatory and the newly added cheerleaders may not jump in unless any member of their team has been called a "hoser".

The NHL has been purchased by the Japanese firm, D-Mart. The Playoff trophy will now be the D Cup. This strategy may payoff in the long run. That and dropping the beer prices to 10ยข U.S.

I was going to say something about a spanking, but they never said that in "Slap Shot". I gotta keep things real, you.

Peace out!
