So when we played street hockey I wanted to be the goalie, and of course I played with the only goalie stick I had. Needless to say after many, many games, the stick got completely broken and I had to throw it away. This is something I have regretted more than anything, that I didnt just keep the stick as a souvenier, instead of using it. I am quite sure it would be worth some money too these days (not that I would sell it).
This exact same thing--had a stick signed by Gordie Howe and broke it playing street hockey when I was about ten.
