Good old game.
Anyone who has been reading for a while knows that I am a huge hockey fan… though I do prefer playing the game to watching it. Tomorrow we’re having what is turning out to be a gigantic game of hockey; what started as a few friends from work has ballooned into a big deal.
It began recently as a discussion with a few friends at work. Ever since Decemeber, I’ve worked on a team full of men – seventeen of us, actually. It is truly quite the boys club, and as such there’ve been a lot of times we’ve planned to spend time together. This can range from playing hackey-sack together on breaks to talking about paintball excursions.
We already get together every few weeks to network a room full of TVs and Xboxes together, and tomorrow marks the first in what will surely become a tradition of hockey games. Already there’s talk of football as well, we get together to throw a frisbee, and my boy Leigh bought a soccer ball.
Anyway, it’s funny how you can just mention a casual game of hockey and have a ton of guys instantly stop and tell you that they’re interested in playing. I was partly in charge of coordinating this thing, and even then I haven’t much clue how many people are going to show, and who they are.
More stories (and photos?) tomorrow. Got to go get my gear ready, I don’t care if it is midnight…
