That is about all that has been happening around here. I am playing the occasional hockey game. I got worked this past weekend as only 7 people showed up for the game. IT WAS AWESOME! I got so much ice time. With only 2 on the bench I think I sat once a period. We tied 2-2, I scored 1 of them and DUG REALLY HARD in the corner to assist for the other one to my man Steve in front of the net.
Usually I play 3 times a week during this time but with the amazing addition to our family, I am on the night shift and all pick-up hockey happens late night around here. So just the “real deal” games. Might not have known this about me, but I played varsity hockey for Arrowhead back in the day, and hockey was the first place I dreamed about being a pro athlete. Now I play in a local C league on the weekends for cross training with my Dad and his buddies on the weekends. I would play with the B league but its for the the workout and to hang out with my Dad. The speed and inability to make plays gets a little frustrating at times, but it teaches me to couch the competitive beast within and see what really matters, time with family and friends, I’ll save winning for the bike anyways.
