Of course, here in Minnesota there are two varieties of the game - field hockey and hockey (the ice is redundant)
Don't forget floor hockey!
And road hockey!
Or table hockey! :0)
Because it's a lot harder to play it in the summer…
Possibly the first occurrence of the letter 'c' I've seen in the course! Although I may be forgetting some.
Hockey is a borrowed word. Canada is usually spelled with a C as well. :0)
Somehow the outstanding prevalence of Canada led to a slight blind spot! And I know that c and z do show up mostly in borrowed words.
And the letter, "x". As in Mexico. :0)
I liked your initial reply best ;) it fit into the email notification before the edit. I laughed!
Is "they play ice hockey a lot in the winter" not valid?
