“Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, working together is success.”
Never get caught telling a hockey player it’s just a game. Never get caught trying to explain to him all the things in the world that matter so much more. His mind might well acknowledge the truth to your point, but his soul would be powerless to accept it, considering the immensity of what he gives to the sport, and the immeasurability of what it offers in return. Nothing ever feels as perfect as a moment of flawlessness on the ice. No bond as strong as one that compels brothers to bleed for one another. Not many leaders are this versed in the craft of motivation. Not many pursuits can evoke such visions of brilliance. This is why it hurts so much when skill falls short of what the will desires. This is why it’s so unforgettable when absolute passion yields ultimate reward.
NHL meme: Two quotes (1/2):

The University of Denver’s men’s hockey team joins the You Can Play movement.
Since the first round of playoffs are coming to an end and some teams have been eliminated and others will be soon I thought I would point everyone in the direction of this quote!
“No team is ever as good as it’s high point, and no team is ever as bad as it’s lowest point.”
This was on my dash earlier…I don’t know if anyone will appreciate it as much as me.
