Hockey in the Heat

My son asked me to play on his ball hockey team today during his gym class. Turns out that the grade 7's, some grade 8's, 9's, 10th graders, teachers & other dad's joined to play.

I laughed when some of the kids saw me. They said, "oh no!" I asked why they said that & their reply was, "your son is a really good hockey player Mr. Matt which means you have to be better." I laughed & agreed with them that my son is really good, but that I am only ok.

We played hard for an hour strait & were the only undefeated team 4 & 0. But I am a little sore. It was great fun to reconnect with some of my son's classmates & meet new ones as well as their dad's.

Best of all my son played awesome! Canada is proud.
