hockey playoffs continue…or do they?
My little brother’s team had the game of the season tonight. They staved off a team that was a year older than them and he was doing everything to keep the puck out of the net — even did the splits twice (ouch!). They played their little hearts out and lost 2-1. We were excited because they really did suck at the beginning of the year and have come a long way, but sad because they won their first play off game and this one was so close to being their second. The fun part was that this game didn’t count! There are an uneven number of teams so this one was just an extra one to fill in space. Let’s hope their skills continue and their luck improves by one goal for next week. Oh, and that Kevin can keep his slashing stick to himself. He slashed a kid who wouldn’t get out of his crease and got a penalty with less than 2 minutes left in the game. Fiesty little guy.
