Where are all my hockey fans?
As some of you may have picked up from reading this blog I played Lacrosse from middle school and through out high school. I have played on college club teams, as well as the woman's league in San Diego.
I even had the amazing opportunity to coach at Brighton High School (I wish I had more time for coaching....someday I will again!)
With that said, did you all know that Canada's original national sport was NOT hockey? It was Lacrosse!
Now Lacrosse is the national summer sport, and Hockey is the national winter sport.
In fact Hockey and Lacrosse have a lot of similarities.
Anyways the whole point of this conversation is to say.... Although I tend to get caught up in college football around this time of year (GO UTES!) I can't forget about my homeland's favorite sport!
HOCKEY SEASON ANYONE?
Hockey is such an exciting sport to watch, and if you are from Canada you have to have a
team you support. You can't avoid it, you are just born into it. My family are Oiler fans :)
Imagine my mother's dismay when my sister married a Calgary Flames fan (The Horror!) haha
So in honor of the NHL Hockey season starting this month, I have been sporting my big comfy Oilers shirt around the apartment while I study and do homework.
I LOVE IT.
Cool side-note... my cousin Zach Hodder is an amazing hockey player. I wish I lived up north so I could get to see him play! He currently plays for the Vancouver Giants who are a Major Junior ice hockey team!
