Ice hockey player Clint Malarchuk collided with another player and took an ice skate to the throat, slashing open his carotid artery. Seven people who witnessed the incident fainted, and two suffered heart attacks!
I'd like to say something against it, but it's true. We usually get days off for the NHL playoffs. When it's the Winter Olympics, our school has buzzers that go off in the classrooms when home (Canada) and away (whoever else is playing) scores in hockey. We have TVs in the halls playing hockey all the time. Also, my cousins school actually has an ice rink.
