Something different part two: Hockey

Something different part two: Hockey

I don’t like too many sports and the sports that I do like either will kill you, severely mess you up, or knock the shit out of you. My wife says I curse a lot; I would have to say yes I do. This is something I laugh about on a regular basis. I love her and she is a fantastic and extremely intelligent woman not to be taken lightly. That’s probably why we get along so well. She puts up with me and puts my ass in place when I need it…

O.K — back to simple phrases… My favorite saying: Never judge a book by its cover.

Back to sports…Every now and then, I like to see what’s going on in the world of Hockey, particularly the NJ Devils. Here is what I enjoy about Hockey. The players are top notch and exert an extreme amount of energy, stamina, and the capability to get knocked down on a regular basis and get back up. It takes a lot of courage to play hockey as a profession.

These are real hockey players, not talkers. It is not a game when two players get into it. They have nowhere to run and hide or go get someone else to fight that battle. They kick the crap out of each other. What was the point of this? Hockey is like life. You either live it for real or fake it. Go Devils!

See you in the next post!

Hello and welcome to this collection of anecdotes from my years of ordinary moments and timeless memories. I try to share a positive message, as well as lessons learned which have helped me appreciate life. Sometimes, all it takes is a simple (positive) gesture. I write in the hope that I can make a difference and you as the reader will also see the possibilities that surround you, and as well that the little things do make a big difference. I’m originally from New Jersey, have traveled and lived on both the east and west coasts, and have happily been a Virginia resident for more than ten years. I have been married for over ten years; my wife is my anchor and has kept my compass correct. I have always been an individual who likes the outdoors. I like taking my time to think about the outcomes of situations. I enjoy philosophy and love science. I am no stranger to high adrenaline activities and love everything that revolves around water. Thank you for stopping by and feel free to comment, re-blog (with credit), or just read along! –Robert Konz.
