#26 in your program..... #1 in your hearts, the rookie assist machine for the Moose Knuckles!

I'm still trying to decide between riding the stick or doing the center ice swim when I finally score a goal.

I figured you'd be a Moose Knuckle kinda girl....

It is a co-ed league but for some reason we have no women on our team.....

For the past few games I've been playing D and its not going well, I will have to nove back up to the wing so we can start winning again.

I would love to learn to play and hit and stuff. But the last time I skated once I got going I had to run into the boards to stop (that hurt) and so I figure I'm probably better off off the ice.

I ever tell you about my first goal I scored after deciding, at age 36-37-ish to play again?

I picked off a pass near center ice while the rush was going the opposite way....You could hear everyone hitting the brakes and turning around as I went full-bore (finally showing off my bicycling generated speed) past the blue line and in on goal, with the hoards diving at me. The goalie went down, my shot went up, and I, screaming, arms up, stick stretched to the heavens......SLAMMED into the back boards because I had forgotten to try and stop!

It was like those cartoons where the character makes an indentation of their entire body in a wall and has to peel themselves out of it....

What a great moment...

I also took a well over a decade off and I decided to sign up again. It is always awkward being the new guy in the dressing room and you know the other guys are thinking "I hope this old guy can play". I didn't realize that gear had changed so much in my 15 or so year hiatus. Anyway on my very first shift I jumped on the ice to replace my guy and as soon as I hit the ice I did a Babi. My legs and arms went everywhere and I landed on my back with a crash. My stick, gloves and helmet all scattered around the ice and they stopped play so I could gather them up. It looked like an equipment sale. It was totally humiliating and I thank Bhuvanshwari that no one was recording it.

Well, I don't feel so bad now. You know, after being humiliated at the family skate by three year olds, you all make me feel so much better!

Yeah it can be a humbling game. Unless you are this guy of course. Unbelieveable!

That's sick. The guy must be a robot. That's the only explanation.

I play a lot and I would not have thought that possible, especially the rolling puck!

He is from my hometown and he was my niece's boyfriend until he went away to play hockey. I never met him but my brother says he was was a really nice young man.

lol....Oh! The Yard Sale! Awesome. Who doesnt have a great story like that? This league that I was playing was a inline skate league...and really I had forgotten how to do anything...so I was skating full steam diagonally trying to cut down the angle of a guy rushing up the wing. I figure Ill get in front and whip around and face him while skating backwards and keep him on the outside. Of course all this turning around at full speed was just something I could do in my mind. It didnt occur to me that I could barely stop at this point.

Anyway....I pull even just as he starts cutting in towards the goal and I go to whip around...and...I dont know what happened...I just put too much into it and lost control....I was like one of those string wound tops you had as a kid....I wound up so tight I didnt just do a 360, I think I pulled a full 540, feet off the ground, spin-o-rama from hell and crashed into hte ground and the guy goes right by....

Stick over there...helmet all askew...missing a glove....

Just beautiful!

Well I only started playing in April but its been a blast. I'm surprised at how much I have improved in that short amount of time. We only play once a week but I try to get on the ice three or four times in between. I've gone from a good shift being any one that I didn't fall down or slam into the boards to actually making plays.

Tina - I don't know about Denver, but here, womens hockey is big and growing every year. The beginner leagues always have a few people who are fighting just to stay on thier feet but everyones having fun. If you have a chance to try it out I highly recommend it.

I started in April too. April 1964 lol.
The tip off to the new guys before the game is brand new equipment usually with their favourite NHL team jersey and matching socks.
There is no game more fun to play though is there?

I don't think I have the mad skillz to even begin to pull that off. I've been trying to get in and stay in better shape and hope to go skiing this year for the first time in about five years. My knees aren't what they used to be. I've been taking swimming classes and I've determined I'm just not very athletic. When they were handing out coordination in the birth line I got insubordination instead.

I did suggest to Mike we go skating Friday though. That might be some fun, instead of shopping!

Great line!

If you haven't learned to skate and play hockey by 10 you are too old. I am assuming you are over 10.
