my soft spot

just a mom who plays hockey and knits

No, thanks, I'm good.

A certain Red div hockey player, hereafter known to all as "In," saw me at an Oakland Ice hockey class trying to lift the puck. Knowing all, she proceeded to barge on over and show me in painstaking detail how to lift the puck, starting it on the end of the stick with the stick angled thusly, drawing the puck in and changing the stick angle, blah blah Bob Loblaw. Didn't work for me. I tried it several times, with her correcting me (what a surprise!) at each juncture. Gave up.

Well, at Sunday's Green practice, I was chuckling to myself as I lifted the puck several times, using none of the methods taught to me by In. None. I still couldn't do it her way if I tried.

Thanks anyway, In. But no thanks.
