Parents vs. Kids Game

March 3rd, 2015              

    The season is winding down for the 2014-15 edition of the '05 Lapeer Storm hockey team. As things wind down, we reach the end of our practice sessions. Tonight marked the final night where the team had the full sheet of ice, and to give the kids a break as a reward for all of their hard work this season the coaches decided that it would be a good opportunity for the team to play against the parents. Once Drew heard that this night was happening he immediately started plotting a plan to get me to participate. I wound up having to buy a helmet, but aside from that all I needed was my own skates and stick I borrowed from Drew. Little did I suspect that I would be the only dad on the ice who had never played hockey at some level. That left me and the coach's wife as the two players who could be counted on as pylons for the kids to skate around. Scorekeeping was hit or miss throughout the "game", but that really wasn't the point of the night - it was all about having fun. All of the kids did - I know Drew enjoyed himself immensely. Enough talk - time to enjoy the pictures of me doing my best to stay upright! (Just for the record - I did...)
