March 3, 2011 Back On The Ice
Northstar Bench, H-F Ice Rink, Homewood, IL
It's been almost five months since my leg surgery. That whole time was spent looking forward to this day. I skated during the pregame warm-up tonight. It felt great to be on the ice again. I had trouble pushing off on my left leg and definitely had balance issues when crossing over on that leg. But it felt so good to be skating again. I watched my team play a great game. We beat the Bulldogs 5-2, I think, maybe 5-3. But we lead the whole game. It was good to almost be part of the team again. As usual the locker room banter made me laugh and it was fun to see my friends again.
