Spent Some Ice Time With This Hockey Mom
Did I tell you I’m pretty hockey crazy? I even played in high school — I was just lousy, but it was fun as hell. And with this hot August weather, I went by my local rink today to see if they had made ice yet. I know it was nuts, but I was praying … and, Holy Zamboni! … they are getting it ready … and should have ice in 2 weeks!!!!
I also found out there’s an awesome hockey camp there and I’m signing my kid up for it. It’s in Lexington, at the Hayden Rink and it’s run by Steve Hoar (BC, BU and a former head coach at Tufts). It’s called the Minuteman Hockey Camp and runs from August 28 – September 2 for kids ages 6 through 14. There’s also another camp for teens ages 16 – 20 from August 28-August 31.
That last week of summer before school is a tough one for moms. The kids are climbing the walls — why not spend it at the rink with me? Call 781.862.5575 to sign up. Tell them Halley sent you — they don’t believe anyone reads blogs and I want to convince them otherwise!
And another thing, even if you don’t have a kid that wants to play hockey in August, there’s this Ice Time too, Jay Atkinson’s awesome book about coaching hockey in Methuen. It’s a great read, especially in hot weather.
