Then and Now

I was chatting with SOB the other day about Sam's progress with hockey, and we went back to watch some videos he had made on his phone. Here is one from sometime during the first month of practise.

He's the one in the gray shirt with green socks. At that point all he was interested in was getting the puck into the net, even if that meant falling on his ass!

Mid-season, though, he began to realize that skating was kind of an important aspect to playing hockey as well. After watching a few real hockey games I think he noticed that most of the guys don't just stand in front of the net waiting to take a shot. He got more interested in the drills, and his ability to stay on his feet.

Of course, in the end he still wants to score a goal, no matter what!
