Ice Hockey with my Fraternity Brothers!
I was not expecting to play hockey when I was in college. I hardly ice-skated as a kid, and most of the sports I played were either track & field, cross country, basketball, or soccer. However, this term I had a chance to play in the intermural hockey league. Anyone can create a team, and the team will play a couple of games to get to the championships. And even though I was only able to play one game, I had a blast and made so many fond memories!
The puck drops soon afterward, and in the first minute, the other team scores their first goal. It doesn't look good. We continue to play, but as time goes on, the other team's score goes up, while our number of goals stays at zero.
However, throughout the entire game, our team is laughing and cheering on our teammates. We have fun, even though we eventually lose the game 8 to 0, and one of our teammates broke his collarbone (he is okay now!) We didn't make the championship game, but we all had a blast. And not only that, my ice skating skills got better, in which I could skate pretty quickly by the end of the game (though I still couldn't catch up to the other team, lol). I'm glad we were able to have a Dartmouth winter experience; it really made my term!
