This pretty much describes me. I didn't know a thing until I started skating at 23 (31 now). I spent 1 year learning to skate (and taking a power skating course in the meantime, I highly recommend), and practicing handling an inline puck before I ventured out to drop-in hockey at age 24. I joined the local beer league at 25 and now play in 2 leagues regularly. I've become good enough where others usually assume I played some kind of organized hockey in the past (high school, college club, etc.), and I've played against NCAA Division 1 players and not embarrassed myself.

And please, if you do love hockey just do it. It's too great of a sport NOT to try.
Absolutely! For anyone on the fence out there, no matter your age, GO FOR IT!! I'm fired up now for my spring league game tomorrow night!
