Yes I said full gear...The only thing we had to buy was a cup and a mouthguard....
Me growing up it was way dif. with pops playing all the time, I was really into it....now as a dad, I am way to outta shape to be playing in a mens league, to inspire them...So My new sights are set for this winter....I am putting up a rink here @ my house! I just hope we get a good, cold winter here in western pa. to make it worth while.....I want to get a nice rink set up with just low boards to keep the puck in..no dashers....I think I may start out with their 20X40 kit to see how much use/pita it is.....
many folks around you do that?

You'd be surpised at how many out of shape guys are in my league - me included. Ususally the big discussion is who is going to bring the beer for the locker room after the game.

As for the outdoor rink, I know a few guys who have done that. I have not because I don't have the property for it. I have looked into it, though. It is a pita by me because it just does not get cold enough for a length of time to make it wortwhile.

One friend was turned down by my town for a permit to put a compressor in - he has twin boys who play and would get a lot of use out of it.

And at $26,000, quite a bargain.

DisneyDaddy-O (Nick) builds a rink every year. Well, not really "builds" it as much as shovels the snow off the frozen lake behind his house north of Toronto.
I like hockey, but I've never played. We didn't have any youth leagues out in the sticks where I grew up. I skated a little when I was younger, but have recently started again since the gym/athletic complex we joined has two rinks. Call me crazy, but at 31, I'm thinking of taking up hockey.

Only $26k? Pocket change! I'll just switch from a Bay Lake view to a Garden Wing Standard View.

As far as taking up the game at age 31, I say go for it! They have men's leagues for any level. A guy on my team started playing in his late 30s when his sons started playing. Now he plays in 3 leagues, pickup games all the time, etc. and he has developed into a decent player. His biggest obstacle, aside from learning how to skate, is that he never received structured "coaching" at that age. He relies on experience from watching games and tips he picks up from other players.

Once you start playing, you will notice a definite difference in how you watch a hockey game. It is hard to describe, but every player I've met will tell you the same thing.

New Complaint...

So my DW (Bless Her Heart) thinks planning for a disney trip means little more than booking the hotel/tickets and securing airline tickets. She does this with an agility that is aweworthy...

NOw...to me...There are more details to planning than she cares to discuss (Adr's...PArk plans...BBB/Pirates, MNSSHP...Nap times...etc, you know the drill)

So I just got everything lined out for our septemeber trip...got it done about 10pm last night. I walk into the room and say "It's all done!" She looks at me and says..."Well...I had most of it done before you started."

TAlk about a kick in the stones...Oh well, when things work out like a well oiled machine...she can take credit for it. That's our Yob right?

(I even secretly booked her a spa treatment...This whole trip was supposed to be a secret until disney busted me out with mailing. Once she figured out the spy games...she jumped in with both feet)

There...I have vented...I feel better.
