I've been meaning to write an entry FOREVER!!! So much going on hockey-wise, that I don't seem to have the time. Since getting involved with hockey again after so many years, it's been so much fun and has been so time consuming! I'm heading into my THIRD tournament this weekend, had the best day EVER last weekend when Hockey Day in Canada came to town. We had a women's clinic that brought Lanny McDonald, Trevor Linden, Brad May, Danielle Goyette, Ron McLean and good ol' Don Cherry to our little city! The clinic was FREAKIN' AWESOME!!! Trevor Linden teaching skating drills, Lanny acting goofy and sliding across the ice on his belly, Danielle helping with puck handling, simply amazing!! Here's some pics!
Friends posing in front of Trevor Linden, as he's being interviewed by CBC Radio. They were excited!!
Brad May! I was swooning all morning over him, he was so nice and sociable!!! (plus he smelled wonderful, lol!)
The man, Lanny!!!! So gracious with EVERYONE asking for autographs, pictures, etc.
The phenomenon that is Don Cherry!
This was the WHL game - between Kamloops Blazers and Vancouver Giants - GREAT, super energetic hockey!
Giganto scrimmage game at the women's clinic! There were probably 50+ players out there. The sad thing was that the ex-NHL'ers could still totally skate circles around us, with 20 women on them!
EEK!!! SOOOOOO close to Coach's Corner, I almost peed myself with excitement!!!
And that was the most exciting day I've had in a LONG time!!!!
