It was not just one single man who came up with the sport. When men from Europe came to North America they noticed that the natives were playing lacrosse which was very similar to their games back home and they used some of the principles of lacrosse in the creation of hockey. Another man who played a huge role in the creation of hockey was from Nova Scotia. His name was James Creighton and he brought all of his knowledge of ice hockey into Montreal, Canada where the first ever organized hockey game as we know it today was played. This man also decided that he wanted to try to play hockey indoors at the local ice skating rink, but he was scared that the ball would fly out of the rink and hurt somebody, so they took the cork bung from a beer barrel which was shaped like the hockey pucks we use today.
New Hope, Pennsylvania is a little town near Bucks County. That is where I go when I want to be alone. It is about an hour away and it is a beautiful ride. As I enter into the town it’s very hilly and scenic. There is a huge river that follows me all the way into the town.
My dad and I have been wanting to go to the hockey store down the street so we did. On the way out of the hockey store i saw a sign that said twenty five percent off anything in store, so me and my dad went back in and i got myself new shoulder pads. Later that day me and a few friend started to head to the rink for the game. We got there very early because we also wanted to see a game before us with kids that we were playing the next day. After that game we lost by one point with about one minute left in the game so I was not to happy about that but at least we tried.
There are trees the size of giants and waterfalls spewing everywhere. The road follows a cliff above endless green valleys. The peaks are brushed with the winter’s snow, but life comes back to the mountainside. There has never been anything more beautiful than this moment. I turn on my favorite Taylor swift tune and crank the volume.
The habitual procedure was that we would travel to a different city in northern Michigan every other weekend during the winter months. The entire club reserved rooms at the same motel. As each couple arrived, the men would unload the machines, unhook and park the trailers. We then went into town for dinner, usually by car. The snowmobile maps would end up on the table and the men would plan the trip for the next morning.
It’s a cold winter morning, and a police officer is patrolling his normal route. Born and raised in this small Midwestern town, he is now starting his own family here. He rarely sees any excitement at 3 A.M., but he spots a car swerving as he passes it on a country highway. He turns around and pulls the car over to find that the driver is his neighbor. It is not a rare occurrence that it is someone he knows in such a small community.

The night was so cold that it sent a shock through my spine. The night when I arrived at the airport in New York, I knew my new life had begun. My parents knew that I might be cold, so they brought an extra jacket for me just so I wouldn’t get sick. As we were walking out of the airport I saw more and more white things falling from the sky. Those white things were everywhere.
