Also, don't play street hockey near parked cars or windows. Because, erm... because nothing, I didn't do anything. It was already like that
I'm not a fighter either. Never fought in about 14 years of playing. I did piss one guy off (by checking him cleanly) so much though that he headbutted me.
I wear a full face cage.
Sounds brutal, but very appealing for that reason. People say football is a weak sport and I wholeheartedly agree but as a goalie its very different. Used to have bleed a lot from the nose /mouth/head area from close range saves or diving at peoples feet etc. Have a lot of scars on my body as well surprisingly.
Haha what a moron! I'm more of an agitator in sports, wind them up and let my team deal with it
