I’m going to play my Canadian/Maritimer card here and go with this clip of Canadian baseball player Matt Stairs teaching the basics of hockey to San Diego TV host Jenny Cavnar. Stairs, if you didn’t know, coaches hockey in Bangor, Maine during the off-season. Judging by this clip, and the speed and precision of his slap shot, Stairs may have played some decent hockey in his day.
Stairs doesn’t go easy on her, either. The first lesson is how to properly body check, and Jenny later learns some fighting techniques from the stocky New Brunswick native. Stairs even jerseys her and lands a couple of soft uppercuts. That a boy Matty, teach them Americans how it’s done. Don Cherry would be proud.
