    I love to see the expression on people's faces,

    when I tell them I play hockey. They seem to be very confused and shocked when I tell them this, especially when I tell them I play on an all boys team, even though I'm a girl :)

    Most of My Life

    Hockey has been a big part of my life. I played 6 years of Minor hockey, 4 years of casual drop-in etc, and the past 16 years on a mens rec. team. I have strived on perfecting my game, and while not a pro, I feel I have nothing to be embarrassed about.

    Better Late Than Never

    A few months back, my girlfriend and I decided we wanted to learn to play hockey. We have a friend that plays so it seemed like something we could do. We have bought all of our equipment. We have learned to skate (we both roller bladed so it wasn't too hard to pick up again). We...

    Hockey is the best sport on the planet.

    Fast-paced and skill Is definitely needed, but the camaraderie, passion and drive are amazing feelings.
