ice play

I played hockey for the second time today. Well, it could probably be loosely defined as hockey. We have ice, sticks, skates (most of us) and goals.

I am amazed at how much fun can be had with those ingredients plus a few good-humored people on a sunny freezing day in winter.

I always thought of hockey as a brutal game but I didn't realize that when it is cold enough you have enough layers on to be very padded (tough today I could have used some shin guards). Running into people and falling on the ice is half the fun. Sometimes I get so over-heated I'd fall on the ice on purpose so I could rest and cool down.

Nice. Cool. Ice.

It adds a whole new dimension to skating and winter fun.
