Stick Practice

With my 28th birthday just around the corner and my physical peak rapidly declining I decided to follow in the footsteps of Jesse Martin and start playing some sports again. I had played hockey through high school and decided I would try to find a street hockey league in the Boston area. When scouring the web I couldn't find a league to join, but I stumbled across "Stick Practice" at HockeyTown USA in Saugus. This is an open sheet of ice where you can go skate, shoot and attempt to get your skating legs back. Today was my first day skating in 3 or 4 years...and it showed !

Anyway, while there I was talking to this guy, who says they play a pickup game 3 times a week in Stoneham the Home of Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan. So maybe after a few more times attempting to regain some of my skating skillz I may go and play a little competitive hockey.

Also on a side note, HockeyTown has indoor wiffle ball and street hockey leagues, with a wiffle ball Home Run Derby December 17th. Mark your calenders!!
