By no stretch of the imagination is any sport ‘easy’, though, I’m not sure hockey gets enough press for just how difficult it is to play.
I mean, forget the fact that you’re constantly in the radar or somebody trying to take you out, you’re forced to glide around on these paper thin razors, fully padded up while using a modified tree branch to push around a stale donut.
Not exactly something just anybody could do.
But Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks seems to have no trouble doing it, in fact, he makes it look absurdly easy.
He also makes a mockery of stickhandling skills in a recent video, which is beyond impressive.
Granted, it is a commercial for the new Vapor stick so the whole ‘hidden camera’ bit is fake, of course, but it doesn’t diminish the skills of Kane who’ll probably leave your jaw dropped by the time you’re done watching the video.
