One of my favorite things to do during the winter months is play hockey.
There are a lot of places to play ice hockey when you live close to the border of canada.
I live in a neighborhood that is about 35 minutes from Buffalo, New York. I drive to the city on the weekends for work. I am a part-time HVAC technician for a Buffalo service company. I make extra money for working on the weekends, so I only have to work Friday, Saturday, and Sunday each week. I have off four days and I use that time during the winter for hockey. My boss at the Buffalo HVAC business is also very flexible. His son is in the same hockey league as I am so he knows when the games are going to occur. Both of us get those days off if the games are early on a Sunday. We never have games on Friday or Saturday, so I don’t have to worry about that. Not everyone thinks that hockey is as wonderful as I do. I started dating a new girl a couple of months ago and she doesn’t understand why I want to live, eat, and read ice hockey. I grew up playing hockey and during the winter months it is one thing that occupies a lot of my time. If she is really unhappy with the relationship, then I guess our time dating is probably going to come to a close. There’s no way I’m going to give up hockey for anyone and that includes my future wife.
