Current: Vet Sci @ Shell on Fridays, helping coach my kid's West Madison Polar Caps team.
Last played on a team in '93, and it was all about winning. Hated it, almost sold my equipment and gave up on the hockey experiment. Thankfully, returned to fun hockey.

First put on skates as part of the UW Computer Science department's group in '90, have been a hockey guy ever since.

As the years went on skating became harder, so I put on the pads so falling down (my natural reaction to ice) looks like I'm making a play.

Have 3 kids, so there's the priority that can trump hockey, but we try to keep Sundays open for MGHA.

First year team = Redrum, referencing The Shining by Stephen King. Jersey = Cujo, not because I'm a rabid pupper, it's the nickname for former Badger goalie Curtis Joseph.
Addendum: second year, on the Nightfuries. Jersey = Hiccup, as I'm more the little nerd kid than a dragon.

Note to team captains: while I'm happy to skate out as a sub, if I'm playing goal in an adjacent slot, I'll need to miss a little bit of your game.
