Oliver Wendell Holmes, who to the best of my knowledge never played hockey, once said something along these lines: “Men don’t quit playing because they get old, they get old because they quit playing.”
On that note, a bunch of hockey playing buddies and myself who are not quite willing to get old just yet are heading to Montreal this weekend for the second year in a row to keep on playing. I’m looking real forward to this, as much as I did any tournament I attended as a kid as last year’s event was a blast.
Stevie Nicks of Feetwood Mac crooned that “Players only love you when they’re playin'”. Hmmmm….I got nuthin’ here. I don’t think she ever played hockey either.
