I just love the "hockey arena" thing, have been going into rinks since I was about 6 yrs old, and, yes
the smell, the hot chocolate,hot dogs, the hockey,and the spirit and chit chat, I love the NHL, and
love to watch my grandchildren on the ice, and figure skating as well.
The professional game is just as much fun, the only part of it that isn't, is the cost. It shows the
level, one of those tiny little 5 and 6 yr old guys can reach if they have all the ingredients they need
to climb that high. Hockey is hockey, and you can see the same excitement and desire on the faces
of the "Canucks" that is seen on the faces of the kids, and to see the game being played without "all"
those mistakes, is something to behold. I love hockey at every level, but the best is the best, and I
like it the best. The major Junior games are great too, those guys are at the point where they are
ready to enter NHL level, and their effort to "get" there is quite obvious.
Yeah. I've had them in here, too. Had one sleep overnight ( or at least early morning) with us in the bedroom once, too. Got up, opened the window and went about our usual day. He/she was gone later.
It might get caught in my hair and take a chunk out of my head? It could rip my ear right off with it's fangs. Or worse, what if it won't stop screaming? *shudder*
