Tuesday. rhiannon, aka "hey coach!"

as a kid i grew sick of hockey, after 8+ years of following the family around hockey parks and working in the park canteen for a few seasons. this year, after some time away, i got back into coaching and it blew me away how quickly i fell back in love.

now i haven't seen a proper full-field game for years (coaching 6-8 year olds this year meant we played short quarter field and half field games) and i probably wouldn't have picked myself to be watching a grand final game for funsies this time last year, but there i was cheering sam's team on.

they won 6-0, with a goal in the first ten seconds and in aftertime! exciting. never did i think i'd voluntarily watch another game of hockey. let's hope i have time next year to continue coaching.
