Spring / summer hockey started tonite. It was a great skate and more than a little tough to keep up with a crew that is much younger than my winter league. I hadn’t seen many of these guys since the last time off the ice at end of the summer season last August. Hockey, like all team sports I suspect, has such great opportunities for forming friendships. Many of these guys I’ve now played with for years and while there’s a bunch whose last names I still don’t know, it is always nice to seem that back at the rink after a time away.
