I wouldn't really call it crying, but... after being away from hockey for 10 years (because of injuries, family, career, time, life, etc.) I welled up on the bench when my over-30 team clinched the Championship.

As the clocked ticked down, for a few moments I was overcome with joy & emotion. It had been a long hard trip all the way back to a Championship.

At this stage of my life (almost 40), I put a great deal into each and every game (off ice stuff, like: diet/pregame meals, exercise, rest, stretching, rookie hazing, nursing old/new injuries: ice packs, heating pads, rubbing in ben-gay, balancing work schedule, late nights at the rink, etc.)

ONE OF THE HAPPIEST MOMENTS OF MY ADULT LIFE, WAS SCORING A GOAL IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME, AND SIPPING BEER FROM THE TROPHY!!!

Life is good!
