This video is too good! Please enjoy. It gave me a huge laugh!
In other news the NHLPA has given a new CBA (collective bargaining agreement) proposal to the NHL. Now it is the waiting game to see if the NHL will work with it or reject it. Since they have had the proposal in their hands for more than 5 minutes I feel this one is getting some thought. The last time the NHLPA handed the NHL proposals they gave 3 different options and it took the NHL only 10 minutes to dismiss all 3 of them. Fingers crossed the ball is rolling a faster now and we can all get our Christmas wish and have the NHL back!
A couple weeks ago I took a friend of mine Sara to hockey practice. We were having a catch up before she got back on a plane to Ghana for 3 months. I wasn't sure if she would be interested in practice but thought I would run the idea by her. She was completely up for it and I have to say it was one of the best practices I had been to in a while.
When we got to the rink Sara started asking me questions about the players on the ice. The usual suspects were there including Daniel and Henrik Sedin, Chris Higgins. Willie Mitchell, Tanner Glass, Dan Hamhuis, Cory Schneider, Rod Pelley, James Reimer, Jim Vandemeer and Kevin Bieksa. Sara and I sat down at center ice and as she asked questions and pointed out players I would give her the run down on who they are and where they are from. Sara also asked about the lockout. I explained it in the simplest way I could. Perhaps the best part of practice was when Sara said to me after watching these guys skate that she was going to enjoy watching a game so much more. Watching them practice and seeing what the players do during a game but in slower fashion can really open up your eyes to how skilled these players are and how fantastic the sport of hockey is.
As a shot out to Sara and a thank your for letting me drag her to practice I dedicate this post and all of the fun pictures below to Sara! Thanks for coming wonderful friend and yes, when you get back from Ghana and the NHL season starts lets watch a game together! X
