Hockey teaches us to aim high and go in

On Tuesday night, after shovelling roughly 15 cm of snow from my driveway, I decided to unwind by watching hockey on TV.

When I switched cell phone providers a few months ago, I ended up getting NHL GameCentre Live for free. In the past, I used to subscribe to it. I then started cutting down on various expenses, which resulted in terminating this subscription. I must admit that it has been wonderful watching a ton of hockey games at home.

Anyway, I was watching the Columbus Blue Jackets game against the Carolina Hurricanes. It was a pretty fast-paced, high-scoring game.

I then heard the following remark from one of the commentators when a player had missed scoring a goal:
"As the old saying goes, aim high, go in."
Immediately, my mind went into the gutter.

I told my guy about this comment. He simply agreed. I could only picture him grinning with his cell phone glued to his ear. After all, we think alike, especially from the same gutter.


  1. LOL CB...I'm not a hockey fan so have no clue what that announcer meant but my mind went somewhere else entirely. ;)

    Hugs and blessings...Cat
