  “He shoots he scores! They have just won the Stanley cup! Unbelievable!” These are the words replaying over and over in every young Canadians head as they lace up the skates. Every minute of every day is just another step closer to fulfilling the dream of playing ice hockey professionally. I also had the fantasy of playing in the NHL, luckily I was never destined to be a Hockey star and retired the goalie pads to the attic in high school. Even though my dream had ended, my love for the game of ice hockey will be with me forever and is currently being relived through my nephews. Returning to Ottawa for Xmas, my brother and I made what every Canadian boy dreams to have, a backyard hockey rink.

  “他进球得分了!他们刚刚赢得了斯坦利杯!简直难以置信!”这些话时刻回想在每一个穿着溜冰鞋的加拿大年轻人耳边。每天的每一分钟就是一步步在实现打职业冰球的梦想。我也曾经像他们一样幻想在NHL打比赛,“幸运”的是我从未被注定是一个冰球明星,当我还在高中的时候就已经把守门员垫(译者注:冰球运动守门员的防护装备)放在阁楼里了。虽然我想要成为一个冰球明星的梦想已经结束,但是我对冰球游戏的热爱却丝毫没有减少,现在通过我的三个侄子重温。这个圣诞节回渥太华,我哥哥和我制作了每一个加拿大男孩也都梦想拥有的地方——私人后院冰球场。

  With 99% of China’s population living in apartments there really isn’t any concept of a “backyard”. So in returning to Canada being able to play in my nephew’s backyard was a real treat. I assume the equivalent of having a backyard ice hockey rink in China would probably be having your own personal badminton court in your apartment. Anyways, building the interstellar rink was as simple as researching a “how to build your backyard hockey rink” You tube video and a couple trips to the hardware store.

  因为99%的中国人口都居住在公寓里,这里(中国)真的没有任何关于“后院”的概念。因此,回到加拿大和我侄子在院子里打一场球对我来说简直是太享受了!我觉得在加拿大的家庭后花园里有一个冰球场相当于在中国人自己的公寓里有一个自己的羽毛球场。总而言之,建立一个星际冰球场就相当于在YouTube(视频网站)上搜索“如何建立你的后院曲棍球场”或者一对夫妇去五金店一样简单平常。大人们喜欢与孩子们一起玩冰球,而且乐于保持球场的最佳条件供孩子们玩耍。

  Even in -20 degree weather we still are excited to kick the kids out to the rink to skate and play hockey. In the battle against electronics (Video Games), every chance we get will push them to get outside and play with hopes of starting a habit of exercise and health. Even in the outdoor heaven of Canada it’s hard to kid people outdoors to exercise and do sports. I can relate cause when you are grown up in outdoor heaven one will take it for granted, fortunately for myself I’ve spent 14 years in China so now when I return to Canada I spend as much time as I can outside!

  即使是在零下20度的气温下我们仍然兴奋地和孩子们一起去滑冰场滑冰或者打上一场冰球。为了让孩子们拒绝电子游戏,我们一有机会便会拉他们出去玩,希望他们喜欢锻炼,并且培养健康的习惯。有时候,即使是在加拿大这样的户外天堂也很难让人们坚持在户外运动和锻炼。我可以理直气壮地说如果你是从户外天堂长大的那你就会明白为何我在中国待了14年之久,一回到加拿大便要尽可能的呆在户外了!

  Completion of the “Frozen Dreams” backyard hockey rink, I can’ t help to fall back to the dreamy state of hoping one my nephew’s will become the next Wayne Gretzky. Kaleb? Probably not, Michael? Maybe… Liam? Definitely!

  随着“冰雪梦想”冰球比赛的结束我不禁想象我的侄子会不会变成下一个韦恩格雷茨基•卡莱布呢?可能吧...利亚姆?肯定的!
