We're Number 1!!!

Mr. Hockey played ball hockey this year again, at a local church. They have been running it for 5 years now and he has been there since the start. I think he has one more year left and then he is too old.
The first year he played, he wanted to be goalie, so we signed him up for that. He has a lot of heart and played hard, but let too many goals in. I believe that they did not win one game that first year. He smiled his way through it.

The next few years got better and better, the guy who ran it started setting up the teams after a skills day and it made for more even teams. Finally, I think it was 2 years ago, his team placed first. He was so excited, to go from last to first. He is also improving in his hockeying ability and keeping on the ball at all times (no longer a goalie).

This year, it just ended and believe it or not, his team came first again!! They each won a medal and Mr. Hockey was picked to receive the "Most Sportsmanlike Award". That is pretty impressive if you ask me. He always seemed to smile, and when he missed a goal, he smiled, and when he got penalties for slashing :-0, he smiled...

All in all he had a great season and is looking forward to returning for his final year next year. The church that runs it does an awesome job!!


  1. Congrats Mr. H!! He is always smiling, no matter what, even while doing dishes for 4 hours after a church dinner!! :-)
