Just a quick little update on my hockey equipment and the disrepair it’s in. I mentioned a few weeks ago that I switched back to my old hockey skates after a little home repair and have also mentioned I’ve been much more successful since. Well, the stupid things broke again today while I was playing and I spent half the game wondering if the blade (the metal part you skate on) was going to snap off and cause me to break an ankle.
Well, I made it through the game, and now I face a dilemma. I have a game tomorrow night. I can either skate on them, since I broke out the “Super Glue” and fixed them when I got home. Or I can spend $100+ dollars I don’t have on new skates. Or, I can wear the ones that are too big. I think I’m going to use the fixed skates one more time, and hope I don’t injure myself. If I do, I guess my next post will be from the hospital.

Sounds like you like a blend of comfort and taking chances! 🙂
Hope the skates hold out and you don’t come acropper!
And hope your team wins the game!
Well I hope you don’t hurt yourself with the fixed skates. I always hated buying new skates. Breaking them in was a bitch on my feet & ankles.
Ooh, I don’t trust superglue…in my experience it’s anything but. Be careful – can’t you wear too -big boots with two pairs of extra thick socks?
Whatever, take care and watch those ankles. Hope you win.
I hope you had a great game! 🙂
Absolute Vanilla – I think I’m motivated more by performance and cost 🙂
freeandflawed – thanks. I survived. 🙂
Diane – the superglue didn’t hold up the whole game. I didn’t hurt myself, though.
Vesper – it went pretty well. At least I scored a goal
