I'm playing out the tail end of my second season of hockey after a 21 year hiatus.
I'm on the ice every Friday night, working my ass off and having a blast. Although my skating needs work, I'm pretty decent with the puck and I'm usually good for two goals a game. Only once, however, have I recorded a hat trick, and shortly after potting that third goal I left for the hospital with a separated shoulder.
Yesterday, it all came together. A hat trick and not a cheapy in the bunch. And no injury to speak of.
