Hockey night in Calgary

Hockey night in CalgaryIt’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.

  1. Good for him! The healthy benefit from playing hockey is of course the exercise! Tim and I have recently began cycling – and I’ve already dropped 4 pounds! It’s great to be able to do something together – since I didn’t take to the skydiving thing! Hope you guys are well! Love, Andrea.
