Hockey Night in Canada
Yeah. Hockey! Its been such a long time since I played last-- on the ice that is.
There's a neighbourhood rink near where I am in Ottawa, in fact, I used to play there with my friends back when I was in highschool. Sick of math and algebra homework, we'd head off for a late night game.
I've gone the last few days. There are kids and adults always there hanging around, waiting for the inevitable pick up game. Now, back in the day, I used to play goalie. I also haven't squated in something like five years. But... I am happy to say, I still have the touch! It took me half an hour to warm up, but then I was deaking around, passing and defending against all these teenagers who are definitely on hockey teams!
Feels great! FUN. That's gotta be good for healing!
