Sometimes it’s necessary to scavenge for that crucial goal in front of the net. Hockey players know the doorstep of the goal is where business is done. You’ll take some hits from the opposing defenseman but what hurts the most is that fourth tally waived off late in the third. Count ‘em: one, two, Kathmandu! When that sick pick led to your first hat trick, some mad-as-a-hatter fan got rid of this lid. You told that cat in the hat you came to play and his respect for you grew three sizes that day.
Once the celebration dies down, it’s just another successful road trip before the next. “Life is a highway,” as the song goes. Ride it all night long. Enjoy every moment.
