Liberals can't leave hockey alone

More of Colby's reflections on the Todd Bertuzzi affair:

"The historically aware hockey fan knows how much progress has been made at transforming hockey into an elegant game of skill; but the liberal demands perfection now, in sport as in the world. It's a perfection the liberal considers attainable by simply writing the right rules; his naive credo transfers readily from law and politics to the microcosm of sport....
And sport demonstrates the awful stupidity of this faith in man's perfectibility. "
