Whether I am playing ice hockey or working as a referee, I feel like a knight from medieval times! My skates are like my horse, my charger, and give me speed, mobility and power. I wear a helmet, just like medieval armor, as well as arm protection like greaves, leg protection like shin plates, and underarmor like chain-link mail. I also have a visor just like a medieval knight’s helmet. And when I play, my stick is like my sword or my javelin to joust.
The same holds true when I ref lacrosse, but I wear less armor, like a simple hand-to-hand combat in a medieval tournament, instead of jousting. And my feet are my trusty steed. I love it. Game on everyone!
