it’s hard to believe the regular hockey season is almost over with just a couple of games left for odin in his last year as a pee wee.
he’s a great player but if i’ve learned anything over the years – it’s hard to take a great photo of defenseman in action ( much easier to take photos of offense shooting pucks into the net than taking photos of defense running down pucks ) 😃
unfortunately they lost to dodgeville 3-6. there’s a good chance they’ll play them at the state championships in a few weeks so they’ll need to step up their game if they want to take home a trophy.
so proud of odin for studying hard all summer, passing the tests and becoming a hockey ref! his first game was today reffing viroqua versus black river falls. His first job! as an added bonus he had first experience of having parents swear at him from the stands.
seriously, if you’re swearing at a 12 year old ref you really need to reevaluate your priorities. Happy the asshat parents didn’t phase odin and he’s very excited to keep reffing.
sweet! santa brought odin detroit red wings tickets to an upcoming hockey game at joe louis arena! and multiple hockey practice jerseys.
“the joe” is going to be demolished in 2017 so santa was thinking ahead and thoughtful to get odin tickets before the historic arena’s demise!
which means we’re done with the once and twice a week 35 mile trips we’ve been making all summer so odin can keep skating over the summer as our arena doesn’t have year round ice.
hometown ice is almost done which means the regular hockey season is about to begin! and with the start of the season comes longer trips to arenas all over wisconsin O_o
after 4 months of sitting in hockey arenas on weekends, i almost can’t believe the season is just about over. two games against onalaska today, the kids lost the first game 3-4 but won the second and last game of the regular season 4-3!
it’s always good to end the season with a win!
the next time they play a game it will be against dodgeville in the state championships on march 12th. they lost to dodgeville by one point in a game earlier in the season and i think they really want to avenge that loss. should be a good game.
->this guy<- ( they’re playing first team they'll play at state so i guess it's gonna be 45 minutes of shaky cam teaching video )
if you’re on a coach bus for an out of town hockey game and the parents convince driver to make a beer run after dropping off the kids at the arena ( an hour before the game starts ).
