Don’t even think of watching this video from some guys in New York and New Jersey if you’ve never strapped on a pair of skates and played hockey on a pond.
They were one of the teams who played in the pond hockey championships on Lake Nokomis in January and they’ve just released the film they made while visiting our fair state of hockey.
If you have laced ’em up on the pond, maybe you, too, feel a little wistful about winter’s demise, even as it still maintains a little bit of a grip on us.
The team lost all three of the games it played, two of them with 17-2 scores.
