Easy. Step one, make sure the baby doesn’t sleep in the morning (ah ah, easy with Mark!). Step two, head to the Canadian Tire Centre in Kanata for the open Ottawa Senators practice. Step three… enjoy!
Admission and parking were free, and the arena was packed with kids and fans of all ages, eager for the hockey season to start. I had forgotten how chilly it was so close to the ice but we enjoyed the action and being able to be so close.
I’m not sure I would like Mark to play hockey though. Not so much because of the risk of injuries, but because I’ve heard that “ice time” is precious and that kids are often scheduled to practice at ungodly hours in the wee morning!
