It’s been years since I’ve seen slaDE~ play hockey on a regular ‘team’, and having missed his first 2 games, I wanted to cheer him on.
Well, the shinny turnout was pretty dismal (7 guys), and at $265/hr for ice time, that makes for a pretty expensive hobby of shooting a puck around! But these men were determined to make the most of the empty rink and I still was able to cheer the guys on (accompanied by our friends Rob & Robin).
We sat huddled in the stands, with a carafe of hot chocolate, hard as nails mini-marshmallows and dunking cookies, whooping and hollering, enjoying our 11pm game. The bonus: I managed to skilfully jockey the puck around with slaDE~ on the ice, without falling down. Hurrah!! So good to see him happy and in his element.
