The Winter Classic is here! Well, it's been delayed by seven hours, but that's what rain will do.
And to get you in the mood for televised pond hockey, I can link you guys to an article I wrote!
You see, my neighbors set up an ice rink every single winter for as long as I can remember/as long as they've lived next door [maybe minus that first winter or two since their kids were tiny]. And since I now have a sort of legit writing job as a Red Wings article writer/blogger/whatever you'd like to call it, I have set my heart on writing an article about the ice rink.
I love the ice rink. So much. It's a way to bond with family and friends and neighbors, and that's not even going into the whole better-appreciation-for-the-sport-and-its-players.
So since the Winter Classic is delayed, I thought I would give you guys some pond hockey coverage to tide you over until the Capitals slaughter the Pens [hey, here's hoping]. And yes, there are pictures and there's even a video with a full-out hockey brawl.
If you like it, I suggest that you RT it or link others to it or something. I want to spread the love of the sport/recreational activity, and let people who have never played pond hockey see just how amazing it is.
