My son's coach asked me to help him out with a clinic, and said he'd fix some stuff with my skating while we were doing it. Once I got on the ice,
it just turned into me doing the clinic. Which was kinda awkward, because the kids were 7-12 years old, and I'm 40 and 6'2".

On top of that, a college hockey team was at the rink for a game, and they were hanging out watching the clinic. They had to be wondering who the weirdo
was taking a clinic with a gaggle of small kids. Then the coach wanted to do a scrimmage at the end

Beat the first place team 4-0!

We were a bit short and the captain asked me to play center with him. Should I take this as a sign of reliability?

Today I went out for the College team tryouts and remembered why I hated tryouts in the first place. I don't like sharing the net and sitting on the bench. Got so few shots too. Most shots I had were in the shootout. Hopefully tomorrow goes better and I can show what I can do.

Today I'm on holidays and am travelling to visit family in the states. Very happy to get away after a crazy busy summer at work... but...

going to miss 2 games and 2 scheduled skates. Next game I'll make isn't until Nov 16.

Kind of conflicted after having my best game last night in my short 7 game beer league career. A 4-1 win, 2 goals, no stupid positional errors, a couple of takeaways, and a couple of great heads up passes through the neutral zone.

dang... hockey is addicting. Am I really considering that 10 days away this fall wasn't the best decision.

Played pretty much the worst game of my life last night. We lost 10-2 against a group that should be skating up a level. I was a -3 or -4, can't remember. Just awful.

First goal I took the pass on a 3-on-2 and the puck carrier scored. Next rush I took the puck carrier and the other guy scored. Tipped a puck in from the corner. Worst was a 2-on-1 where I got back and tied up the open man...tied up his stick and he STILL managed to score.

Only plus side was one of our guys got two quick goals, he doesn't score much, but he's a worker. I had half a dozen good point shots, one bounced off the pads to him for the tap in. Last shift of the game I stepped up from the point and got a shot off, picked up the rebound and skated behind the net to feed our guy out front for the hatty, and pipe. Dang. Then came back to steal the puck on a breakaway the other way as time expired.

I guess it could have been better though, our goalie had the flu and was not able to drop or move well. And we had TWO goals the refs whistled dead too early.

Today I found out that its a pain to put on edge socks as I have to put my shins on before socks. End result i wore my tongues out as my skates went on after shins and i loved the feeling, think I'll be sticking with it.

4th time playing hockey in four days today. Going to be interesting to see how the team does this time around. Especially with my slightly pulled groin.

Slick assist from behind the net, threaded the needle to beat the D-man and hit my pinching defenseman for a slot shot. Later followed by a one-timer water bottle knocker over the goalie's glove from down deep. We lost the game 6-4 to the only team so far this season without a win (7 games in) and who haven't beaten us in over a year. Ouch

Awful luck I had last saturday. One of my teammates carried the puck down low in the opposing zone. The dman checked him into the boards, I dig the puck out quickly and pass it to the point man. He carries the puck, dangles a guy and shoots it into the pads of the goalie while I skate infront of the net and bury a easy goal. My teammates congratulate me but the ref breaks it up and gives me a cross checking penalty even though I never touched anyone. My goal is annuled and they get a PP and score seven seconds later. Later I was going behind the opposing team's goal chasing the puck. I was still far from the puck and the opposing dman goes in to check me with full force for no reason what so ever. I dodge the man but he skates through my TotalOne and it snaps in half. I owned that stick for over a year and it was the best stick I ever had. Atleast I bought myself a Nexus 1000 and now I am ready for my team's tournament

In the quest to play better defense last night, I tried stepping up my game to fight for the puck more and block more skating and shooting lanes. The result? I bounced off of the center twice (Dude's 6'3" 245lb of solid muscle), blocked a few shots on goal the hard way (thank you for working properly, new cup) and hurried a couple of shooters into aiming poorly. While I rarely carried the puck compared to our forwards, my passes were good enough to notch a few more assists.

So far, so good.

Last night I went to my local shop to get a receipt re-printed for my stick that broke under warranty. Took him a while to find it as he had to dig through all the transactions for the day. Afterwards, while browsing sticks, saw a Mako marked on clearance for $60, but it was mis-marked as an M1. Did the good deed and pointed it out, saved some hassle for them down the road.

Would have been nice to get a new Mako for $60 though

I got checked from behind, by a fatass, then got so fired up, that I stole the puck on a forecheck and roofed it on their goalie, scoring our equalizer. Then skated over to that SOB and said to him "Eat that, MF".

My goal and passion ignited our comeback, and we've won 5:3, now leading our division.

I found out that there are length restrictions on sticks. I was surprised, but now that I know, it seems totally obvious.

A girl in my house comp was given a warning because her stick was the same height as she was! She just hadn't cut it down, and didn't realise she was supposed to. She chucked a huge tantrum, it was too funny!
