For Old-Timer Hockey Players, It’s As Fun As It Ever Was

Great feature article  in today’s KW Record on old-timer hockey.  A couple of guys in their 70’s and 80’s are quoted about what the game is like at their age.   From their perspective, and one shared by most guys I play with, is that it still as much fun (if not more) than it was when we were kids.

We’re slower, we don’t shoot as hard, there’s no hitting or slapshots and overall we’re just not as good, nor is the overall quality of hockey.  But we play very much the same way we did as kids, our old habits still there from many, many years ago.  We still trash talk our buddies about the same foibles in their games and personalities.  As a friend of mine once said “It’s the most fun you can have with your pants on.”
