What about Hockey makes you happy?

I also have a short story. I'll be turning 23 in a couple weeks and have never had the privilege of playing hockey. I've grown up in southeast Kansas where hockey is non-existent. No ice, no inline, nothing.
I lived in Springfield, MO for a year to attend college, where they have a hockey rink, and was able to buy a pair of Bauer ONE60 skates and start skating. Without even having a stick in my hand I immediately realized that the inexplicable love for hockey I had grown up with was not false. I love everything about being on the ice.
In about 10 months I will be moving back to Springfield, and 23 years of built-up hockey anxiety will finally be put to rest. I can't wait to put my first puck in the net. I may actually shed tears of joy.
