Next weekend is the Northern Regional Pond Hockey Championship at West Lake. Pond hockey is pretty cool, but it’s not the same as regular arena hockey. Mike’s top five things to remember about pond hockey.
#5. It’s not really a pond, it’s a lake.
#4. The Zamboni is smaller, slower and resembles three guys with shovels, a broom and a garden hose.
#3. You may need a fishing license to use the outhouse (depends on where they put it).
#2. A good slap shot can go on forever!
#1. Essential gear: Helmet, gloves, shin pads, cup and … a life jacket!
