    Enjoy it! As you can see by my name, I've been there. Spent 12 years driving my son to 5am practices and 10pm games - depending on how old he was! After his last game senior year of high school, he dropped the bag in the basement and there it sits! Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. Majoring in sports management now so maybe someday he'll be running the Boston Bruins!! Enjoy every minute - it goes by quickly...and think of Aruba when you are sitting in those cold rinks in January!

    seriously.
    we were too COLD being in that ice rink day in and day out.
    his replacement sport.......horseback riding.
    almost $400 a month and a barn riding arena is colder than an ice rink in the winter.
    omgosh :-(

    so to you hockey parents.........God Bless you and your ice cold toes.

    Of course I like it!

    How times have changed! When I started skating (I was 4) the only hockey equipment I had was an old stick that my dad cut from an adult sized one. No shin pads, regular cold weather gloves and a stocking hat!

    Have fun!

    Yeah I started around 5 myself and played up through my first year in college. It was great stepping back in to my arena and watching my son. They dress these kids like super heroes today but I rather see that then not enough equipment like me and Rob were used to. Fortunately I never lost any teeth either just a few stitches on the ol chin. These places can get cold I agree but luckily I was already asked to help out with coaching. I am off to the pro shop tonight to get a new pair of skates, gloves, and helmet.

    I grew up playing hockey and racing motocross....I'm surprised my mom never had a heart attack!!

    Yeah man Ocean Ice palace, hockey town USA, Brick NJ.

    Funny thing is my good friend I played hockey with just retired from the Flyers. He is very involved with the kids hockey programs here at the ice palace. Start em young, maybe one day he can by daddy a place on my favorite island.

    The best part about hockey is that you can play forever. One of the guys on my beer league team turned 68 this year and he still skates better than a lot of guys half his age.
