He Shoots, He Scores !!!
Jade drew my portrait at the start of the hockey season. She asked about this drawing again during the Stanley Cup Finals. It is now proudly hanging in my den.
The Thrill Of The Stanley Cup
Jade’s early childhood education teacher won hockey tickets, hotel accommodations and a flight to the opening game of the Stanley Cup Finals in Los Angeles. I said Jade and I will be looking for her on the TV during the game. For the first time ever, Jade was actually excited about watching hockey with me. (Yes!!!)
I love hockey.
I grew up playing the sport.
I still play every week. I used to play 3 to 5 times a week.
I play because I love the game.
Frankly, I’m kind of sick of the NHL.
I’m tired of the owners and their lockouts.
I’m not really keen on most of the NHL star players either.
Personally, I think most of them are “out-of-touch” and overpaid.
After the 2011 Stanley Cup Riot though, I’m even fed up with certain “fans” too.
I’ll spend my money on my equipment, expensive sticks and ice time.
But, I’m not going to watch many NHL games at the arena or on TV …
Well … maybe not until the playoffs.
