Three blind mice…

I’ve been a hockey referee for several years now, and if there’s one thing I’ve come to count on, it’s that the pre-season is always a bit of a gong show. Two weeks in a row now, I’ve shown up at the rink for a game that had been canceled, and no one bothered to let the officials association know. Today it happened to be for a game at 7am. I got up at 5:30, was at the rink by 6:20, and when I went to step on the ice at 6:55, watched as only one team hit the ice. Time for a Starbucks trip. It’s going to be a long day.

    It sucks, but at least you could drive there and back. But you know the best part of the gong shows is when the really good acts come on and last for the full duration.
