A blast from my hockey past

Admit it, there are times that people are shocked to learn something about you. Most people know that I started off in college doing one thing and then switched to follow my dream of teaching. What people may not know is that for several years I had season tickets for our local hockey team.

Yes, I was a huge hockey fan.  Not only did I have season tickets, I had fabulous seats. I sat behind the home team’s bench, just a few rows back on center ice. My seat was so close that I could actually hear the players and coaches on the benches. I would travel around with friends to games that were near and some that were very, very far away. I even went to NHL training camp several times during the fall.

At one point, our team had a hockey jersey auction. I bid on a game worn jersey of my favorite player. I won and wore it for games from that point on. Now that same hockey jersey sits in my closet. I actually took the jersey out the other day and wore it for Purim. Funny thing, it felt amazing. It reminded me of those fun days back when I went to games to escape from the stress of college. Best of all, it was cozy and warm. Perhaps I need to take the jersey and my hubby and boys to a hockey game one day soon.

Guess who?!

So my question this week is:

What is something from your early adult years that someone may be shocked to learn about?
