ORDER ON THE ICE

Even prior to the summer league incident my mom describes, I would sometimes let my temper cloud my judgment and hinder my ability to play. Hockey is a very physical game, like football, and you don't realize that you can do damage if you don't control your emotions. I had to learn that bad temper isn't really part of me as a child of God. It's not what God put inside me.

My initial feeling after the stick incident was utter sorrow and embarrassment, because I had reacted and lost my temper. The other guy wasn't hurt, and because he was protected in his own way, I was incredibly grateful.
