As one friend pointed out to me, in Canada we don’t say “ice hockey” – it’s just plain old, hockey. Because of course, what other kind of hockey could there ever be?
Although when you are on an outdoor rink and some of you are wearing figure skates, do usual naming conventions still apply?
There’s a beautiful rink in our neighbourhood & I had forgotten how much I love skating. I grew up on an outdoor rink in our backyard, so it makes sense that it felt at home.
Also, do you know how much energy it takes to skate and hold a stick and chase a puck all at the same time?
Way too much energy.
