Almost Ready for the Highlight Reel

Eldest son got a taste of the bright lights recently, playing with his team in front of hundreds of adoring fans in the 1st intermission of the Halifax Mooseheads game. This was their first taste of ice in the biggest arena in the province, and I wish I could show you just how excited they were.

I made this video of the "game", and shared it with the other parents of kids that got to play. Warning: Video depicts a lot of adorable tripping, falling down, and other loveable shenanigans.

(Role of cheering, hollering, annoying Hockey Dad played by yours truly.)

And here is the big boy hockey player with the mascot, Hal.

I have to tell you, I've never pushed this kid into playing hockey, and I don't know if he'll stick with it, but he sure loves it. Also, getting him out of bed at 0545 or 0600 on a weekend to go play hockey is way easier than getting him out of bed on a weekday at 0700 to go to school. I guess the facts speak for themselves.
