HOCKEY IS OOOOOOOVER!!
Harry's team finished 6th at state, losing their first round game in a heartbreaker when the other team scored the winning goal with 24 seconds on the clock, easily winning their second round game, and losing by a single goal in the consolation bracket championship to their own club team rivals.
It was a truly fun and awesome season, and it was a little bittersweet. Next year, Harry is a bantam, which means the girls start playing in their own league and the boys' league gets a lot rougher. They can check each other in bantams, which sounds stupid to me. Harry is going to have to think long and hard about whether or not he wants to keep playing, especially since he will not likely make the A-level team and will be on a B or C team, which means the game could be even more dangerous because less skilled kids are rougher and lack finesse. Also, some of those kids (like, ahem, Harry) are on B and C level teams in part because of their coach-ability and/or behavior issues, making them more prone to check just for the hell of it. Basically, if Harry is not going to play in high school (and he may not-- it is really competitive), then I am feeling not so positive about him playing at the bantam level at all. But, I can't be a dream-crusher, you know?
So, anyway. The tournament was in Green Bay, and we took advantage:
BEST CRAP FOOD EVER
