In honor of the awesomeness that is the Stanley Cup Finals, let us turn our eyes to another form of hockey: underwater hockey, also called Octopush.  The sport is popular in the U.K. and several college campuses, two places that are famous for generating terrible ideas.

As you can surely see, there are some obvious problems with the sport, as it has retained none of the violence of its ice-skating parent.  Personally, I think if the sport's advocates want to grow the fan base, it'll need to look a lot more like that underwater fight scene in Thunderball, with mask-pulling, diving knives, and harpoon guns.  Or hell, at least put some sharks in the water.  They can even be little sharks, as long as they're hungry.
