Our team, the Old Goats, won the B.C. Senior Games 65 and over hockey tournament in Nelson. We had a wonderful time in the beautiful town of Nelson, which has a lot to offer in the way of scenery, mountains, a lake, nice restaurants and great golf. And in the winter there is great skiing at the nearby resort of Whitewater.
We drove home after the game, through the spectacular BC mountain scenery. I went for a swim in Christina Lake to get the feel of the smelly hockey equipment out of my system. It felt good.
We won the Gold Medal game 3-2 with a short handed goal in the final period. My winger and I had a two on one break while killing a penalty. Fortunately he did not pass to me and instead chose to shoot a lightning fast wrist shot past the other team’s goaltender. Very exciting. See of you can locate me in the picture. Now I have to get back to my Czech (and Russian).
