Welcome To My Blog!

Being a hockey mom just BEGS to be written about so when my daughter strapped on the goalie pads, I picked up the pen. Now I blog rink-to-rink keeping the world of youth hockey real AND real funny.

Through the highs, the lows and the all consuming stink, follow me on my journey to get through each season. Us hockey parents have to stick together!

We Went to Colorado and All I Got Was This Stupid Head Cold

Well that's not really all.

- I ate bad food, got windblown and dry skin.
- Discovered I was claustrophobic in the Cave of the Winds.
- Reconfirmed that girls hockey is pretty much non-existent west of Minnesota, according to the assistant coach of Colorado College during our tour of the Tigers locker room.

The debit card got a work out, the goalie got a work out (played over 1/2 the tournament and our car got a work out (12 hours one way, I DO NOT recommend this road trip).

Why do it, you say? Well isn't it obvious?

We love hockey. There were moments of brilliance in those 3 losses and the goalie rocked. I did get to be in 4 states at once on the way back and had shot of goldschlager with the moms at a team dinner.


Besides where else could I take this bag and not look like a dork?
