I played in a crazy hockey game last night in my adult league. Yes, I switched back to the skates that are a size too big for me. I’d rather deal with that than have the blade snap off while I was playing. The skates weren’t too bad really, since I tied them really tight. The idea skate tightness level of a skate is just before the point where your feet get numb.
So yeah, the game was crazy. The final score was 14-9! My team only had eight skaters (5 play on the ice at a time), and we play 60 minutes straight without any breaks, so I did a lot of skating. It was fun, but I’m a little beat this morning. I did score a goal, which gives me eight for the season. I’m hoping to get to ten. I feel much more confident on the ice lately, which makes playing a lot more fun.
The playoff beard is going well, only slightly itchy. We’ll see if I can get some pictures.
There is going to be more Daddyness over at Be A Good Dad, and I’m going to be one of the Daddies! Mike offered the chance and I gladly accepted. I was able to choose whatever topic I wanted to write about and I chose children’s book reviews, because we read to our daughter so much. I will have a weekly post there and I’ll let you know what it’s posted. The reviews should be fun and also let you parents know about some good kids books. I will be operating on the five sippy cup scale (1 sippy cup is bad, five sippy cups is good).
