visiting Yahoo Answers instead of a doctor

texting friends who are RNs instead of visiting a doctor and pestering them until they tell you what you want to hear

i thought that said “what you want to wear” because we simultaneously ask you for medical and fashion advice

icing-on-the-rink:

In between stretching and juggling a soccer ball, one player notices the ponytail jutting out of the helmet of a St Louis AAA Blues’ defenseman, cutting a swath between the 5 and 5 on her white jersey.

“Dude, check it out,” he shouts to no one in particular. “They have a girl on their team.”

The observation quickly spurs the type of comments one would expect from a bunch of high school-aged boys whose testosterone is racing minutes before a big game. But the observant teen interrupts the frat boy humor with an astute observation. 

“No dude, check it out. She can play.”

Still, the jokes and comments ensue.

“Just shut up and watch. That girl is good.”

*****

As the only female on the Blues, and the only female competing at this year’s Youth Nationals, Jincy Dunne knows that her presence on the ice produces second looks. Still, she expects no special favors, even when things get physical on the ice.

“She does a very good job of standing up for herself. She has the mentality where she doesn’t want anyone to stand up for her,” says Wilson, who admits that even he gets a little riled up when opposing players take runs at her. 

“You have to respect that. She’s a competitor. Still, the guys kind of know when to jump in. It’s pretty neat to see.”

*****

“It’s been kind of a whirlwind, to say the least,” says Jincy’s mother Tammy, who recently traded in her white Suburban after the odometer hit 320,000 miles from driving her six hockey-playing children to rinks around the Midwest and beyond.

*****

 “Most of the time I try to keep my mouth shut,” she admits. “For me personally all the jibber jabber between the teams doesn’t help anything. I just try to keep my head up, stay smart and know that my teammates have my back.”

The engraving on the trophy is, of course, Annual Kane Hockey Classic. Because what else would it be.

Kaner has an annual ball hockey tournament. That he named after himself. That he lost. 

Never change, child. Never change.

#hockey #sniffle #i need to set up my hockey blog so i can have it up and running proper for the season 
Then we went up in the elevator and joined the Heilbrunn Cosmic Pathway, a 110-meter spiral ramp representing a time line from the big bang to the present. It is just pictures and photos and occasional rocks and fossils on the wall, and I didn’t even need to look at them, because I know the story, which I related as accurately and dramatically as I could, putting all that we had seen during the day into context, as we walked down and around until we reached the ground level and the tiny vertical hairline representing all of recorded human history. It was almost closing time now, and we were the only people standing there. On other occasions, I have listened to people’s reactions as they reach the end. “Makes you feel a bit unimportant, doesn’t it?” they say. I suppose that is one way of looking at it - how the age of the universe somehow diminishes our lives or the events of history or Joe DiMaggio’s streak.

But Rosie’s response was a verbal version of mine. “Wow,” she said, very quietly, looking back at the vastness of it all. Then, in this vanishingly small moment in the history of the universe, she took my hand, and held it all the way to the subway.
