Not To Be Trusted With Knives











It seems that every time I go to Ontario, I come back with the plague.  On the day of the pig party, my sister was totally wiped out by a nasty, nasty cold.  Like, so sick that she went to bed immediately after everyone left (about 5:30 p.m.) and slept through ’til the next morning.

Now I appear to have come down with the same thing.  Sore throat1, headache, runny nose, achy sinuses. My apologies to all the people on the bus yesterday when I had a sneezing fit.

So, since I’m not capable of writing anything coherent today, I give you this video: How Hockey Sticks Are Made:

I hadn’t realized how much of the process was done by hand.

1though not as bas as the sore throat I had last month.

{November 17, 2008}   My New Hockey Stick

Last week I mentioned that I needed a new hockey stick.

So, for last night’s game, I taped up the blade of my old stick’s doppelgänger.  As you can see from the photo (pre-taping), the sticks are almost identical.

Except that the new one doesn’t have the big chunk missing out of the blade.

The new stick didn’t result in my getting any points in our game last night, but we won 7-3, so I’m not complaining!

Me & my freshly taped new hockey stick.
