Finally, after years of begging, we signed Hank up to play hockey. It's a huge pain for Joe and me; there are multiple practices a week, often late in the evening, games at far away locations and on top of all that, it's COLD watching those games.
But I have to say, it's really, really a fun sport. Really fun. It's fast moving, it's exciting and these seven-year-olds are already great skaters. Plus, since they're just kids, the only people watching the games are the families of the kids playing so you can get nice and close and really watch the game. I am getting a crash course in the game and am picking up the rules quickly.
I don't know how Hank developed such an affinity for the sport, but I have to admit it's pretty fun.
