In a couple months T’ll be done with learn to skate and then we’ll both take a learn to play class. After that, I’m pretty sure he’ll be ready to play on a team, but I’m not so sure about myself. The kid’s picking things up and improving a lot faster than I can.
Tonight I go to the rink to watch a game in the 35+ division – I am, after all, getting up there, so maybe this is where I need to set my sites on playing. I want to get an idea for what my target skill-level needs to be to join a team.
Things look promising at first … lots of grey hair, lots of missing hair, some bellies. I might be able to keep up with these guys … then the puck drops …
Old and slow? Right. Older and slower than when they played in college, maybe.
Not where I’ll likely ever be playing, but a fun game to watch. I need to stop by and watch games here more often.
