Hockey is an incredible sport. Was really cool to be welcomed into it as an adult beginner. People are so eager to share their passion. It's not like the river permit thread where people are getting a bit stand-offish toward newbies because they represent additional competition for permits...hockey players are like "Hey, you wanna be a crazy hockey player like me? Fuck yeah!"

And I love the speed and intensity of the sport. The difficulty. The million decisions you have to make at one time. And the raw athleticism. I was not an "athlete" growing up, and I love that it helps unathletic kids embrace athleticism. My biggest reward right now is mentoring a mildly autistic/highly ADHD boy to play a team sport. First 2 years were a bit of a struggle and now he's GROWING and MATURING and connecting with his teammates.

And my little introverted daughter who doesn't make friends easily showed up in a college town and had a text 3 hours after arriving inviting her to join a former opponent's adult league team.

hockey is awesome.
Truly.
Cant say enough about the sport, life lessons learned, resiliency adopted and friendships created. Sticks out for Teddy
