Ball Hockey - The Perils Of "Going To The Net"

What happens when you go to the front of the net looking for a screened shot, tip or rebound when someone like this takes a slapshot from about 12 metres from the net......


Using a (hard) Mylec orange street hockey ball like this.......

While you are in a similar position as player #24............


This is what happens............Ouchie!


Needless to say it was one "sensitive bike commute to work this morning and a long day in the chair. The things I suffer through for the love of the game!Worse thing is it was probably a goal had I not got in the way.


Got hit between the glute and the hip.Sore as a beotch but at least the swelling is subsiding. The question now will be how much bruising will occur...hopefully my platelets are higher than usual or I am in for a colorful, albeit temporary, tattoo.(wink)
