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. Since then I have been blogging rink-to-rink keeping the world of youth hockey real AND real funny. 

Through the highs, the lows, and the all-consuming hockey stink, us parents need to stick together!

A Letter To That Hockey Dad

Dear guy-in-your-team's-sweatshirt,

I know you, on sight. Our kids have played against each other for YEARS. We've come to Vegas to play you and you've come here to play us. We exchange pleasantries despite our rivalry and discuss the finer points of each game and our kids' performances without malice or judgement.

We wish each other good luck, say hello and bid farewell like old friends who know they will meet again. We are the model of good sportsmanship, goodwill and everything that is awesome about hockey. Other parents should take note of our easygoing acquaintance-ship. 

Now if I could only remember your name.

Sincerely, and until next time,
