If the players get into it and they stay on their feet usually refs will not break it up quite yet. The referees will come in whenever they think it is necessary, but that is usually when the players slip, or there is serious harm coming to one of the players. The hockey match does get stopped when there is a fight going on, and most of the times the sport announcers will hype the fight up telling the viewers each player’s name and what is going on in the fight. The game can be halted even longer though if the teams clear the benches and raid the rink. That does happen occasionally, but not too often.
According to Wolff “When the first sneering name, the first joke, the first slanderous myth of another race enters our ears, can we ever wholly cleanse ourselves of its effect?

The Doc says to Patrick, “it just seems to me that some people will never get along,” referring to the turmoil between the East and the West. Patrick responds to the Doc by saying, “Yeah, like hockey players from Boston and Minnesota,” and then Doc slyly adds, “Our own private Cold War.” In the grand scheme of the film, this scene is crucial as it links the battle between the college hockey players for the U.S with the political conflict between the U.S and Russia. If it was not yet evident that the 1980 Olympics were more than just sports, this exchange confirms
Nestor is known throughout the book to be quite devious and conniving, but not in a way that hurts the Greeks main outcome. He pulls strings to get the best outcome he can get. With his experience and knowledge “Nestor has been viewed as the prototype of wisdom anchored to the old age experience.” (Reisman) What Nestor doesn’t realize is that his original plan creates a snowball effect that will develop into one of the greatest conflict ever witness in the ancient world. Nestor is a minor character in Homers epic the Iliad, but his actions provide major development for the plot. Three key actions of Nestor changed the outcome of trojan war, the death of Patroclus, the rage of Achilles, and the death of Hektor.
Moore illustrates the many ways American citizens can obtain guns and the many controversies that surround gun possession. Moore represents the ‘white Americans’ in favour of gun ownership as extremely fearful to the black population and discusses how the media plays a role in fuelling this fear. Moore illustrates this by use of a small cartoon clip, segments from various news shows as well as comparing the Americans to their north neighbours, the Canadian population. Moore starts his segment on fear by using a small animation clip, concerning the history of the United States of America. This clip particularly focuses on the way fear made the Americans behave a certain way.

There are so many crazy things going on in this world that people do not understand.
