On Sunday I played ice hockey for the first time in my life. Any of you who are close to me know how huge of a hockey fan I am, and now the rest of you have been warned. I’ve spent lots of time on roller blades, but very limited time on ice skates. I hadn’t skated in about 5 years. Needless to say, I was a bit behind these guys that had been taking this instructional class for a few months, but I’ve always wanted to play. With all the things coming up in my music career this Spring, I see this as perhaps my last time for awhile to get out there and make it happen.
This is me standing in front of the goalie. A player out of the frame shot the puck towards the goal, and the object of the drill is to deflect the puck with your stick past the goalie. In this entertainment industry, I have noticed that lots of people take themselves way too seriously. Sometimes you have to take a step back, and have a solid laugh at yourself. And why not share an opportunity for others to laugh AT you?? So enjoy.
I will go on record to say that the puck WAS deflected…and that it DID go into the net. Check the goalie. He looks behind him. If you’re wondering, it’s my sister laughing mercilessly at me. I love you too.
