It felt good, being back on the ice. The barbs of Don's skates bit into the slick surface as he surged forward, racing across the ice as memories of his high school ice hockey days rushed back to him as he made his way down the rink.

He'd been reticent to learn to skate, joking about how little ice there was in Southern California, but his father had grown up playing hockey back east and Don figured he could use an off season sport for when baseball was dark. He'd ended up really enjoying it, as his father suspected he would.

Moving smoothly, he wove through the other players expertly, closing in on the opposing team's captain who was weaving the puck through their defense and heading towards the goal.

In one well practiced move, Don stole the puck and pivoted to head towards his own team's goal. The roar of the crowds were in his ears and his teammates blue jerseys were a blur as he zoomed past them.

Then he collided with something just shy of a freight train and saw the boards rushing up at his helmet. There wasn't even time to swear, time to yell to the referee about illegal body checking. There was just suddenly darkness.

"Don! Don!" Charlie appeared in his field of vision, brow furrowed.

"What hit me?" Don muttered as he realized his back was on the ice and the team was crowded around as his brother knelt beside him on the ice.

"About 300 pounds of humanity," Charlie told him, offering him a hand to rise. He stood, still a little shaky, but waving off his teammate's concerned looks. "But hey! Good job getting the other team's best player sent to the penalty box! You guys are sure to win now!"

Yeah... but, you see, you're supposed to take out the other player *without* taking yourself out in the process /laugh.

Nicely done! :)

:-) I just saw my first NHL game and I can picture Don just getting squished. Poor baby.
