i enjoy sitting in the penalty box. it’s easy volunteer work – you just open the door when a player gets a penalty to let them in the box and let them out when the time is up. hearing the coaches interact with the players offers a unique perspective on the game. i can’t imagine […]
me: “what do you want to read before lights out?” odin: “the dictionary!” we take turns giving each other random words and time each other with a stopwatch to see can find words faster and then read the definition. it’s a fun game and with almost every word both of us learn something new. he’s […]
after playing offense and scoring a goal, odin is back on defense while playing against la crosse who they’ve beat once and lost once in overtime. “maintain your self control.” easier said than done! as one does as a hockey parent, i sat in the opponent’s penalty box. it offers a great view of the […]

odin doesn’t get to see max and mia very often because they live waaaaaaaaaay far away in the foreign land called Venice, California but when they do they always get along like they’re best buds. odin is apparently never taking off his christmas red wings jersey.
if you’re at stella’s lounge in grand rapids, michigan see if you can find odin’s initials on one of the tables. GQ magazine rated their fare as “Best Burger in America”. i had the “mr fables” with green olives, blue cheese & swiss cheese, and while it was very, very, good ( and i recommend […]
living in driftless region with no wisconsin nhl team presents a few tough choices for our default favorite hockey team. it could theoretically be the minnesota wild but we’re in wisconsin the odin plays against a lot of minnesota teams to that’s not really going to happen. we lived in chicago for a number of […]
