So after 10 years my son Trevor (now 21) has decided
to take up the goalie gear again.
Unfortunately he seems to be having a problem finding a team
Small town living doesn't provide a lot of opportunities
But for now he can at least play drop-in.
He's a little worried because he hasn't done it since
he was PeeWee age,
when, admittedly, he was awesome.
He quit because of his attitude at the time
Long story that is...
but now, when he sees his old coach
watching a local Junior A team
His coach says, "you could have been there too"
And Trevor says "I know, I wish I hadn't have quit".
Carey Price, goalie for Montreal, is his hero
because he's from a small town an hour north of here
and made it to big-time NHL.
"That could have been me" he says.
If nothing else, he learned a lesson about quitting with all that.
Anyways, as I said, he's a little nervous
So I suggested that he go to what is called "stick'n'puck"
Kind of a free for all where there are pucks for everyone
and you just practice on your own.
He gave me a horrified look and said, in all earnestness
"But then people will shoot on me!"
Um, news flash Trevor, that's what happens when you're a goalie.
Or had you forgotten that part?
