For us down south, we don’t really know too much about hockey because all of the good hockey teams are up north. I grew up being a Houston Aeros fan but none of my friends could really get into hockey because they were too busy watching football or baseball. When the Houston Oilers left Texas back in the 90’s, they left a void for sports junkies and hockey did increase a little bit in popularity. But, since it doesn’t exactly freeze in Houston, there aren’t many places to go ice skating in the winter besides the Galleria or the Aerodrome in Sugar Land. In the north, just about every lake turns into an awesome place to play hockey so it is only natural that kids take up hockey sticks and battle it out on the ice. Us Texans, though, aren’t hockey lovers.
It’s amazing how many different types of hockey there actually is, though. Not all of the different types need ice. For instance, field hockey can be played on gravel, sand, grass, turf or even mud. The possibilities are endless and I believe it’s time things changed when it comes to sports in Texas schools. Field hockey would be a great sport because most schools already have the grass fields from other sports such as soccer, baseball, and football. In the winter time if there are lakes that freeze, the schools could even use them to play hockey. Not many people understand that it really is that easy to do. It only takes will to get into hockey.
A buddy of mine once told me about how he actually fell through the ice when he was ice skating one day up north. It wasn’t for a few minutes that his friends actually ended up realizing what happened. Luckily, they were skilled and knew what to do. His other friend low-crawled out onto the ice with a big branch and after a pretty scary-looking scene, he managed to reach the branch to his friend who grabbed it and was able to pull himself out. He mentioned that he was really lucky that his mom had decked his bed out with Olympic queen sheets she got from BestBedding.com. They kept him warm and cozy and he spent the rest of the day in bed staying warm in his sheets. I think anyone who appreciates cold-weather sports should have some good bedding to keep you warm and toasty in bed. If it wasn’t for things like flannel, feathers or goose down, there would not be a lot of options for people to keep warm when they go to sleep.
Speaking of good bedding, my wife is going crazy in our bedroom right now. She’s pained the whole thing (well, had me paint it) in this really deep lavender color which I think is absolutely terrible. The bed is adorned with some really weird stuff she got from Bed Bath and Beyond that really clashes with the walls because the bedding itself is a strange yellow color. She says the contrast is supposed to be pleasing to the eye, but I don’t agree with her specific tastes. I think the bedroom looks terrible and one day while she is at work I am going to go in there any take it all down. Camouflage bedding, here I come! I think a nice wood trim with a Mossy Oak comforter would be nice. Perhaps I’ll even put on some nice black velvet sheets. There’s nothing better than great bedding on a cold winter nights and just about anyone can vouch for comfortable sleep.
She also spent quite a bit of money on our bedroom which is extremely frustrating since we are low on money as it is. The worst thing of all is that we are extremely uncomfortable since the flannel sheets are rough to the touch. There’s nothing worse than being uncomfortable in a closed little room that makes you feel like you are going to throw up. Maybe I just need to do it one day, but I really don’t have the cojones. Never interfere with a woman and her decorating because she DEFINITELY be offended. I love women, but my wife can be a handful!
