I'm in San Diego at the moment. Went to the Gulls / Ice Dogs hockey game last night. Adorable little baby hockey players! I don't think more than a couple on both teams combined are old enough to rent cars! I'm quite sure in the ECHL they have to be at least 18, but a few of them sure could have fooled me about that qualification. A couple of the Ice Dogs (Ice Puppies!) had to be Spanky's little brothers! Just darling little babies! :-)
Oh, by the way, really fun hockey game, too. :-) Gulls won on the last (5th) shot of the shootout. Fun stuff!
I have played hockey in the Peewee league since I was seven and it was not that big of a deal. In California we have this league that four year old played on and it was so funny to watch them attempt to make a goal. They were so afraid that they would hurt the goalie more than being afraid that they might hurt themselves.
I'm not a message board person to be quite honest with you. I'm not even sure how I stumbled here (though knowing myself as I do, I was probably up to no good). So, I'm not sure how valid my comments are.
