i caught a TD and picked off a pass in one game of my one year of football (7th grade).
hit two homers in a game junior year.
almost made a hole in one once an shot 2 over another time.
i lived in a town of about 1,500. didn't have a hockey team and we had an ice rink that never even got flooded. my senior year, i decided we were starting a league. got four teams together (two 6 man teams, two 7 man teams). anyway, we flooded the rink the night before our opener and it was only like 45 degrees out, so the ice was completely garbage, but about 100 people showed up, so we played anyway. the other team had a kid who was about 250 on it, so he got to wear his boots instead. hahahaha. it didn't really matter because it was like playing on frozen grass anyway. you couldn't actually skate at all.
anyway, giving a speech to the hundred or so people who showed up right before we had the national anthem played was my best moment. just an absolutely crazy experience. over the "season", we played to some pretty good crowds and for the championship, we rented the Ralph Englestad Arena (where the UND Fighting Sioux play) and the whole town showed up. that would be my highlight, but my then every parent was so far up my ass about helmets and slapshots that i was just happy to be done.
took third in my own ****ing league though! our goalie was god awful. we were down 2 in the third. scored the tying and winner, if i recall. have the video somewhere. there's no ****ing way that is getting posted. hahahaha.
with just one spark, i could rekindle the sun with my very hands.
