Recondite Quips and Hockey Fight Clips

"I visit people in [autism] meetings, and a 9-year-old will come up and want to talk about his autism. I’d rather talk about his science project."

Why were those nice men fighting?

Yes, I am like a little kid when it comes to hockey. I never saw much of it. The red guy (Neal?) was pretty skilled at the rumble. He immediately knocked the other guy's (Prust) helmet off, which was a smart move. You don't want to hurt your nuckles on some bozo's helmet of course. In the end he missed a few teeth though, Neal. Or maybe he didn't have them before. Maybe that's why he took up hockey to begin with and if he wasn't dentally challenged, he could have a good carreer in figure skating. But why didn't anybody stop the fight?

(hmmm this comment is going nowhere and perhaps I should have focused on the Temple Grandin link, but I'm really tired now.)

Martijn, you know about as much about hockey as I know about speed skating!

Hey, pal!

No argue there! I could see from the looks on the umpires' faces that this fight was nothing they worried too much about. In fact: they looked as if they were part of the same show. Very strange.
