It’s October, which means the kids are back in school, after school activities are in full swing and schedules are smoothing out. As the days get cooler, the rinks begin to heat up! Its hockey season!
All across the country, on frozen backyard ponds for fun, in community rinks for house league or historical arenas for major leagues, Canadians are either watching, playing or enjoying our national sport: hockey. If you were to ask someone what they think of when they mention Canada, hockey is sure to be brought up. It is invariably tied to our collective sense of what it means to be Canadian. In fact, approximately half a million Canadians play the sport
While playing hockey may be Canada’s sport of choice, it isn’t necessarily Mom’s, when she has to deal with the clean up! Stains, sweat and mishap can leave ones jersey less then impressive, luckily there is a superb cleaning team that is available to back up Mom! Needless to say, my mom’s favorite is tennis and she loves her Babolat Tennis Racquets like no other.
