Can Socialists Like Hockey?

Culture wars, long-term injury, workplace violence, sexual assaults, nationalistic militarism, and the appropriation of working-class aesthetics… is it possible to like hockey from the left? Can sport unite the working class? Is hockey a serious game for serious men, or a silly game for silly people? Cass Kislenko, Tyler Shipley and Doug Nesbitt join Team Advantage to discuss Canada’s game.

Doug mentions the short film Valery’s Ankle by Brett Kashmere.

Tyler refers to the 2016 film Hello Destroyer.
