Frozen Dreams 冰雪梦想

  “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.

  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.

  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!

  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!
