Dierks Bentley Loves Hockey -- Even Though It Hurts
Dierks Bentley is among the hockey fans who are happy the NHL lockout is over. The country star enjoys playing the game as well as watching it, and says he has a lot of fun on the ice. But Dierks admits it's a very physical game, and it eventually catches up with him.
Dierks plays in an amateur league in Nashville. He says he contributes to his team, and does "good work in periods one, two, and three." But the singer says the "fourth period" -- the post-game gathering at a local bar -- is when you'll see him "really excel." Bentley adds that the "fourth period" is one of his favorite parts of the game because, for him, playing hockey is as much about the camaraderie as it is the sport.
