“Ice hockey is a form of disorderly conduct in which the score is kept”

"Ice hockey is a form of disorderly conduct in which the score is kept” is a hockey saying that has been printed on many images. “Hockey is one of the few forms of disorderly conduct in which score is kept” was written by American columnist Doug Larson (1926-2017) in the Green Bay (WI) Press-Gazette on January 2, 1987. “Hockey is a form of disorderly conduct in which score is kept” was written by Larson in the Green Bay (WI) Press-Gazette on February 26, 1987.

“HOCKEY: A form of disorderly conduct in which the score is kept. — Doug Larson, United Feature Syndicate” was printed in The Reader’s Digest in 1988. “‘Ice hockey is a form of disorderly conduct in which the score is kept’ WRITER DOUG LARSON” was printed in the Calgary (Alberta) Herald on February 17, 2004. This form--with the words “ice” and “the” added—is usually cited.

Doug Larson (February 10, 1926 to April 1, 2017) was a columnist and editor for the Door County Advocate (1953–1964) and wrote a daily column, “Doug’s Dugout,” for the Green Bay Press-Gazette (1964–1988), both Wisconsin-based newspapers. The column was originally syndicated through United Media under the title “Senator Soaper Says”; Larson took over authorship in 1980. Previously, it had been written by Bill Vaughn of the Kansas City Star. Larson was born in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.
