At first I only played shinny to make use of my brand new equipment, which was an impulse buy more than anything. Then the more I played, the more I relived my youth as a defensemen. From which I loved, so I joined a team. It's funny how I watch professional basketball and collect basketball sneakers, but play organized hockey on a regular basis. I bought new gloves the other day and I am happy with the how they fit.
We are 1-2 in the NCHL so far, not a great record, but our team is new and we need time to gel together. Think of us as the Knicks on skates.
