Street Hockey

My Husband breathed a little life back into me when he sent my hockey stick to Kabul.  You may know the Canadian’s are one of our coalition partners and wherever there are Canadian’s there is hockey!  Mix that with a few American states beginning with “M” (and “v”) you have the making of competitive street hockey teams.  How nice to shed the realities of what surrounds me to an hour of something I feel enthusiastic about playing…you hockey players know what I’m talking!  We play our games

Happy gal...thank you Godfrey!

on track.  I hear down at the post in Kandahar (Southern Afghanistan) they built an outdoor hockey rink.  We’ve been unable to play for three weeks due to the pluckiness of the insurgents.  They like to poison our Afghan guards.  Today is hockey day!

    It must be true what they say. All hockey (youth ,high school ,college, etc.) leads to adult pick up. Even if it’s in Afghanistan

    WOW, I thought Vermont was the only place a bunch of adults could play a game of pick up hockey! Who knew!!!??? Knowing how much you love hockey, I can only imagine how much this lifts your spirits. And getting outside and being physical is good for any soul. Enjoy and Go Bruins while I’m at it!!!
