Yes, this ice hockey picture was taken YESTERDAY. When hockey, as far as I knew, should not be in session. But as it turns out, there’s such a thing as a whole underground world of hockey tryouts that go on night after night, rink after rink in the spring. So this picture is a finale of sorts of a week-long hazing. We are not sure if Bastien is fast enough or skilled enough to step up to the next league so we are surveying all the other options too. But gol dang, if you ever want to be intimidated and impressed by athletic ability, you need just step into an 8 year old travel team hockey tryout for a night.
