    I wholeheartedly agree with the dude who approached Steve to thank him for partnering with Skate to Great. I always wanted to play goal as a kid, and (as immigrants as well) my single mom could never afford it – even if I had switched to a winger – so I always played as goalie in street hockey with pillows under my snow pants. good times, all for the love of the sport!

    That said, this whole hockey world cup goofiness is just about the dumbest thing in any organized sporting tournament I’ve ever heard… Some really good young players will miss out because they’re European.
