Had a great 3 day week-end in Cleveland with my oldest son(11)for R&R Cup hockey tournament for Squirts to Bantam. I'm feeling like a pretty proud dad as this is the first-time my son played outside of the Jamestown,NY arena. My son plays PEE-WEE MOHL and its only his first year of organized hockey. His team made it the finals against an Ohio Arrows team, the game was tied 3-3 after regulation and per USA hockey the teams played a 5 minute over-time. Still no score. Then a shoot-out with 10 players for each team getting a chance. The Shoot-out starts with one player from each team going opposite ways at the same time. Frickin nerve racking, I was jumping around like a little kid. My son was no.6 and we were up one. I got my hand over my eyes peeking thru and my son calmly skates down, puck on his forehand then backhand, goalie stays up and he neatly deposits it for a goal. The Arrows score one more and miss on the last shot and we win the PEE WEE B3 title. Man it was awesome,I was a proud dad.. Oh the Holiday INN (Cleveland West) sucks. Sorry if I rambled, I needed to get it out.
