“When hell freezes over, I’ll play hockey there, too”

"When hell freezes over, I’ll play hockey there, too” is a jocular saying that has been printed on posters and T-shirts. “Let hell freeze over...I’ll play hockey there too!” was a frequent tagline of Keith D. Goldberg on alt.sports.hockey.nhl.ny-rangers in 1998.

“When Hell freezes over...I’ll play hockey there too!” was cited in print in 2002.
