Strangely, Friday has always been a day without much hockey in my life. House leagues tended not to schedule much on Friday nights, although for a few years my son’s team used to have the odd practice in the late evening hours when the kids were older. High school hockey likewise didn’t schedule things on Fridays unless we were away on tournaments. I never played in any Friday night pickup leagues, although it is a night where a few of my buddies have played for years.
I’ve played hockey for years on Thursday nights (every year since living in KW in fact) and so it seems Friday is a day of rest, sort of a religious holiday for the game in my life.
But wait….there is Bart’s Friday afternoon University pickup game at 3:30 for a glorious 1.5 hours that I sometimes sneak out of work to get to. Great hockey, a great way to finish off the week even if it is a bit hard to get to, timing-wise. I only wish I could make it more often. Who needs a day of rest anyway?
