Forgive me teammates for I have trained. It’s been 187 days since our last beer league game and I have committed the following transgressions. I squatted, lunged, leapt, sprinted, stickhandled and shot (pucks). Okay, I did a bit of beer guzzling too but, truth be told – and I think that’s what confessions are about – during the last six months I’ve engaged in the most purposeful and comprehensive training of my life. Some of you might think that I’ve undertaken these shenanigans in an attempt to show you up. That is not the case. I’m just trying to keep up with you young dudes. Give it another 10 to 20 years and you’ll see what I mean.
Now let's play hockey.
