Kukla's Korner Hockey

I remember being at the outdoor rink . I used a chair to help me stand up on my skates. That is really how I first learned how to skate – I used a chair to help keep me up on that outdoor rink.
In thinking back about the early days on the ice, it is tough to say whether skating was natural to me or not. Back then you just think about being outdoors, on the outdoor rink, and pushing that chair around with your brother who was skating with you. I know it was easy by any means but in looking back I think I caught onto it pretty quickly in fact.
I have two brothers, one older and one younger. Playing the game of hockey was very prevalent in our following, even at a young age. My father played, my uncle, my cousins. My brothers played. It is safe to say that everyone I knew played.
The game always has seemed to be fun for me. Obviously from the beginning I kept at the skating and I kept at the hockey, I would not have wanted to continue that if I was not having fun.
