I don't know how big hockey is in your community, in mine it makes up a lot of peoples worlds. This year I was able to go up in a helicopter to get some arial shots of our pond hockey tournament.
This was a three day all day of hockey games. Friday night was so windy and cold, I thought to my self those humans must be crazy to play in this weather. Then I took a good hard look at myself because I was willing to be out in that temperature just to get a good photo. What people do to have fun can be so different however I really enjoy the camaraderie that comes with team sports. There is a sense of family, of your chosen family that makes winning or losing so much more powerful.
Is there a sport that your town takes pride in?
