“Why doesn’t Jesus play hockey?” (joke)

A frequently told hockey joke has been cited in print since at least 2000:

Q: Why doesn’t Jesus play hockey?
A: Because he’s afraid of being nailed to the boards.


An anti-joke of this was cited on Twitter on August 18, 2012:

“Why didn’t Jesus play hockey? Because Baseball and Soccer are much more popular sports in Mexico.”
