Snowboarding I am on the slope of the first snowboarding run of my life, my snowboard in one hand, gloves in the other, as I watch people do tricks at the bottom of the hill. I strap on my snowboard and slip on my gloves. I have been preparing for this the whole week. I am ready.
I would play rollerblade hockey in my driveway for hours acting like I was on the Red Wings. This got me interested in how this game that I love, came to be. Hockey’s origin didn’t come from one man or country, but from many different people, cultures, and sports and as it grew, it became a very serious sport in many areas of the world. Hockey’s beginnings and rules were affected by a couple of different sports. The earliest known game which affected the creation of hockey was a stick and ball game played by men in Greece in the 400’s BCE.
My First Time Snowboarding If you have ever seen the snowboarding part of the X-Games or the U.S Olympic Snowboarding team, you know how good they are. But their first time snowboarding wasn’t as bad as mine. I was in the sixth grade when I first started snowboarding. The middle school I went to had a ski and snowboard club that went to a nearby ski hill every Friday.
Roller hockey and floor hockey are also really popular in the summer and spring. There are many leagues for hockey, in the winter there are numerous leagues with various levels based on your skill. Coaches are good at advancing players to the next level, coaches have usually played the game themselves so they can provide players with a lot of hockey knowledge to make them better players. Being on a team of any type is special but being on a hockey team is even better. Being on a hockey team is very special
First, you can learn many skills just from the training to climb Everest. Imagine the skills you would learn on the mountain. In the video strip produced by NBC News, “Dateline: Into The Death Zone,” Shriya Shah has a lifelong dream to summit Everest. She once lived in Kathmandu, where she was born, and was going to go climb Everest.
Ice Hockey is one of the most entertaining sports you could see or play. I would only assume most people love at least one sport but there has been quite an issue on which sport is the best. Ice Hockey is debatably the best sport ever created because of its intensity of the sport, the amazing experience of playing at a competitive level, and Hockey is always changing. People who watch hockey, without knowing the rules of the game, usually can understand that the speed and intensity of the game is very high. On average, a normal hockey player at any level will spend about forty-five seconds on the ice.
Miracle on Ice happed on February 22, 1980. It is when team USA defeated the Soviet Union in the semi-final men’s ice hockey game during the winter Olympics. It took place in lake placid, New York and would be one of the biggest and most important games America has played during the winter Olympics. It is called the Miracle on ice because the USA hockey team had to defeat the mighty Soviet Union amateur team, which was not an amateur team, but a team filled of professional athletes, while the Americas hockey team was college students. The Miracle on ice sent shock waves throughout the world, and it had such an impact on America that the was a movie made after the hockey game played on February 22nd, 1980.
For example, when my team went to the “Tourni International de Hockey” held in Quebec City, Canada annually. This tournament is the most famous youth hockey tournament in the world with some of today's superstars having played in it. Throughout the two week long tournament, I had made some friends that I am still in contact with, 5 years later!
Ice hockey and skating are inseparable, and the popularity of the game has grown significantly over the years. The game originally started in Canada and the US, but it has spread to many other parts of the world as well. Playing the game involves speed skating and a punk that moves very fast on the court. Ice hockey skates come in handy to make the game possible and enjoyable. Here are some facts that might be worth knowing about these skates.
In these paragrphs I will be answering on simple question “Do you think?” and that is exactly what I’m going to answer. Before I start getting ethical let me tell you what I’m talking about, I’m talking about the end of the novel The Giver. The story geos that Jonas and a baby named Gabriel who climbs a hill during a frightfull snow storm to find a sled waiting at the top.
There is a defining silence as I hold my breath in anticipation, the buzzer sounds, breaking the silence as the crowd erupts. Sticks, helmets, and gloves scatter the ice as jump on the glass to celebrate with their teammates. They have done it, the Little Falls Flyers are going to the state tournament. This is the scene I witnessed during my brothers junior year of high school; his hockey team won the section and had advanced to the state hockey tournament. Because it is every hockey players dream to make it to the state tournament, I committed this triumph to memory.

This I Believe When I first stepped onto the rink, I couldn 't believe my eyes. I was playing on the same rink that team USA won the gold medal on in 1980. The greats all were there before me Herb Brooks, Eurozone, Callahan and my favorite Neal Broten. I skated around and took it all in, as I thought what it would be like to win it myself. I believe that you can do anything you set your mind to, if you have dedication, skill and leadership toward your dream.
I went to my first playoff game in the 2013-2014 Blues vs. Blackhawks series. Being in the arena for an NHL playoff game is an appalling experience. At a regular season game, fans cheer whenever a goal is scored, a big save is made, or other game-changing events. At a playoff game there is constant cheering no matter what happens. This series was played against the rival Blackhawks which made the excitement and loudness even greater.
“I remember that game, because it was the most excited I have ever seen anybody get for a hockey game,” says Tom Viehman, a firsthand witness to the 1980 US Olympic team beating the unbeatable Soviet Union on the world stage of the Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York. “Nobody thought that these college kids would even stand a chance against any team, much less the best team in the world.” They were just a bunch of kids in their early 20s, that had played against each other before in tournaments and exhibitions in the NCAA. There was some bad blood between a few players in the origins of the team, like forward Rob McClanahan and defenseman Jack O’Callahan got into a scrum on the ice, based on a college rivalry between the University Of Minnesota and Boston University in the national semifinal on March 26, 1976. Other than that, the team spent a whole lot of time together, and became close friends.
