The Most Exciting Chat Room
In my opinion, the most exciting chat room (the one that can take your breath away and perhaps a few teeth; at least, if you are not careful) would be found at both ends of a hockey rink. That would simply be "the crease" After all it is usually packed; somewhat agitating in nature; people usually try to act unlike themselves at first, however, eventually their true nature shows; one strong personality usually tries to dominate (i.e. goalie or a bruising defenceman or the "mule"...); inhabitants try to stand their ground (I should say ice); however, some are literally kicked out/temporarily evicted; there are explicit rules that you must follow; however, when no one is watching exploitation will occur and some get-away "Scott (Bowman)"free...There are usually referees watching all activity; however, they are human and as a result they sometimes miss infractions; "Big brother" (alias Davie Keon Jr.'s mob) in Toronto has an eagle-eye view from afar and can affect outcomes (Dallas vs. Buffalo Stanley Cup Finals...). It can get nasty in this chatroom; however, it is almost impossible to go unnoticed...There are whistle-blowers all around just waiting to "pounce"; there are well-defined boundaries (red paint); however, the lines can be crossed and sometimes they are not unlike "a line in the sand";there are winners and there are losers; however, usually the referees never lose; when individuals act team-like they are usually more successful in this area; millions of dollars are sometimes "at-stake" and the stake holders understand how valuable an effective "chatroom" dweller can be (i.e. Ab McDonald-60s vintage or even the recent Red Wings-"mule"); some of the greatest "players" actually are quite effective just-outside of "the chatroom" (i.e. the slot or "the office"- behind the net); however, they are not afraid to go in when deemed necessary...
