|Fred playing street hockey with the neighbor kids|
I mean that sincerely. I love snow and cold. I love hockey. It's like the rain thing. I can never get enough of it.
Mostly because I don't have to function and work in it every day. Ever.
I actually have a friend who learned to play ice hockey - in Phoenix, Arizona of all places. I guess you just have to want to badly enough.
But I digress.
In Ottawa, Canada, where they get their fill of snow and ice every year, the kids get a chance to hone those skills every winter. And, apparently work on improving their game over the summer, too.
My grand-nephew Fred got a chance to learn some hockey basics recently in his Ottawa neighborhood.

That's an incentive to stay indoors.
|Let me at that puck!|
And... try not to aim for the windshield!
