Let me tell you about this adorable child. Never mind the fact that Curtis is not a child anymore.
He is just one of the many reasons I why I love coaching hockey!
He’d come out on the ice crouched real low almost leaning on his hockey stick for balance with a huge smile on his face. His face lit up when he’d see me, like just by my being there his day was better. He was one of my favorites that season. My favorite players are always the kids who would try even if it was hard, fall down and get back up and try again. Ok, i’ll admit it, I have always had a soft spot for those tiny kids who’s jerseys hung down so far you couldn’t tell if they had any hockey pants on or not!
Little did he know just by his being there MY day was better!
