So after winning the States and the Regionals, Henry's hockey team lost the last game of their Youth Hockey careers. It was unexpected and strange and it was weirdly anti-climatic, too.
Everything about the game seemed off. The players weren't themselves, the refs weren't doing the best job and no one seemed to want to be in a hockey rink anymore.
Youth hockey season is way too long. It starts at the beginning of September and continues until the middle of April and by the spring, everyone is just over it.
Next year, Henry will play on one of our town's Midget teams which have a shorter season and maybe that will be a good thing.
I know he'll miss hockey, but at least he won't be playing hockey and lacrosse at the same time as he's done for the last few years.
The team lost 5-3, Henry broke his stick, got a penalty for un-sportsman-like conduct and Gordy was in a huff all night long.
Yep. We're done!
