Although I'm not a huge fan of winter, for obvious reasons like cold and snow, I do love hockey. And more than anything, I love playing hockey. If there's one sport that I can't say no to, it's hockey. Last winter I bought some new skates and played at the outdoor rink near my house with some friends and a bunch of other guys - regulars, you could call them. What a feeling! It'd been several years since I stopped playing with a team, and besides the occasional street hockey and indoor hockey games (oh, and ice hockey with no skates, several times... slowest game on earth, pun intended) I hadn't had the chance to lace em up and actually play. Well it's been cold lately, and though the snow is a few months away, I can't help but breathe the cold air and miss hockey. And this winter I'll be at the rink several times a week. Who else can't resist?
