Not the NHL

I went to a rec league hockey game tonight to show my support, reading my book when #46 wasn’t on the ice (ok, and even sometimes when he was). I went to quite a few games last summer and fall, and they seemed somehow faster back then. I realized tonight that I’ve watched plenty of NHL games this season and it’s hard to go back to regular person fun-time hockey. These dudes are so uncoordinated, slow, fumbling with the puck and once in awhile actually completing a pass or swiping at a puck that meanders toward the net. It struck me how astounding NHL goalies are in their ability to stop the puck. Tonight?  All around, not so impressive.
