I coach my kids Roller Hockey team. Yesterday, we had such an incredible game. It was hard fought the entire time, and we only had five kids show up, which meant we did not have any bench to rotate players in and out of.

The other coach was a real mentch, and when one of my players needed a rest, he played only three guys at the time, even though he did not have to do that. And it was the second game of a double header for his team.

Both teams fought hard, and played a good, clean game. We were trailing by one, and I was waiting for the clock to stop so I could call time out and pull my goalie (You don't normally need a time out to pull a goalie, but we needed one so I could take off his goalie equipment and get him on the floor to try and score.)

With a minute and a half left, we got the clock to stop, when we scored to tie the game at 4-4. Our team got control of the puck, and put a lot of pressure on their defense, when Cobi, who had two goals already, got his hat trick when he scored with 2.1 seconds left on the clock.

I love seeing the look of excitement on a kids face when his team wins, and it was doubly glowing with the way we won.

Good game! Yeah, I remember the looks on the kids' faces when they were really into the game and fighting for the W when I coached and was a ref for the JCC roller hockey leagues. It was always a great experience to be a part of.

Who says they don't get that same look mastering some torah. This was about a hockey game, a game in which kids from YBY, Darchei Torah and Yeshivat Akiva all play in.

That's asinine. These kids should have more activities together. When they finally leave their schools and make their way into the community (This one or any other one) they will need to know how to get along with people who are not exactly like them.
