I Wish I Was These Guys

I have to admit that I'm somewhat of an oddball. Everybody in my class is a football or a baseball fan, especially southern conference college football. Me, I like hockey. There is a woman from Canada in my class, but she likes soccer.

So, I felt envious when I found an article about this physiotherapist and his coworker, a massage therapist, who are coaching an NHL alumni team for a special event. They sponsor the game which will raise money for the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.

While I was in massage school in Salt Lake City, my husband introduced me to hockey. My favorite NHL team naturally became the Colorado Avalanche because it's who we saw regularly on TV. SLC also has minor league hockey team and we used to go see the Grizzlies games. I thought that it would be a great job to work with the team, but someone already got there before me -- the Rub Club.

After we came back down south, we went to several NHL games in Nashville for the Predators. Their team had physical therapists from Baptist Hospital working on them. I was shut out again. Now that I'm in PT school, my area of interest is not working with athletes. However, if the opportunity presented itself to work with my favorite hockey players, I'd be hard pressed to pass up the opportunity.
