By the third period my hand was still sore, but I shruged it off as the guy just having a hard shot and that a couple beers would make it all better.

At the bar I was rubbing my hand and noticed that my wedding ring wasn't spinning on my finger. Figuring my hand was swollen I pulled as hard as I could on my wedding band to get it off and set it down on the table. Thats when I noticed that my ring was destroyed. The shot had flattened the one side of my ring (I'll try to post a picture later). Has anyone else ever had this happen?

Needless to say my wife just rolled her eyes and was only slightly annoyed when I said I'd just toss the ring in my night stand until I felt like taking it to a jewler to get fixed.
My wedding ring is made of tungsten...and hockey was one of the reasons I wanted it that way.
