Everybody is in their own world connected by the intensity of the game. Let’s say it’s the end of the second quarter and we are losing. Before the team gets ready to go back on the ice, Mr. Friendshuh deliverd a few encouraging words. “I don't care if we win or lose, just try to win the quarter,” he said. Hockey came to my life in first grade and I won’t let go until my high school years are over, or when we don’t have enough people to make a team. Hockey to me is my life during the winter, besides snowmobiling, ice-fishing, trapping and school.
