I've lived in Toronto all my life and I follow the Leafs closely, but I don't think I've been on ice skates in about fifteen years. I realized this the other day when I signed up my son for a local "Learn to Play Hockey" program. This particular class requires that a parent join the child on the ice as they learn the fundamentals of hockey. Each session is wrapped up with a fun game of hockey.
Our first class is Saturday, and I don't own a pair of skates. I played organized hockey until I was thirteen, and then I got out for some games of shinny at Rennie Park in high school, but I haven't been on the ice since.
I don't think James will be the only one needing practise out there but I'm glad this is happening. I needed a reason to get back out there. It's embarrassing being a Canadian hockey fan who doesn't own ice skates.
