Usually through the course of a hockey season I attend two or three games…most often it has been, in the past, due to my office. Someone has taken me as their guest because I was their pastor, on their board, had some interest or connection with The Salvation Army. This week was a completely different case. I was the guest of family. What a great gift – to be able to go with my brother-in-law Terry and my nephew Noah to watch a game.
And what a game it was! Edmonton is proving to be a great young team, and after finishing in the basement two years in a row, they have been able to put their hands on some great young players. I really enjoyed watching Taylor Hall. He’s going to be a great leader and play maker. He’s got hands…as they say. He can handle a puck well and he got the first goal of the night on a tight shot from the left of the net.
In the end Edmonton lost…but it was a close game and was fun to watch.
It was fun to watch Noah too – he sure loves his hockey and he knows all the players and much of the data! It might have been a cold night outside but we enjoyed every moment! Being back in Ontario and so close to family has been a real joy this past six months. Thank you Terry and Noah for taking me. Thank you LORD for allowing us these days close to family.
