We've all shared in the same most-recent hockey memory. Lets distance ourselves from that a bit and share our very first memory of hockey.
For me? My cousin Daniel (and his family) were visiting from a country that doesn't have much hockey, but plenty of soccer. My dad took us to a college game (or something, my memory is shoddy) and my cousin Daniel getting worked up that the refs weren't calling obvious penalties. After we explained that hitting was part of the game, we all enjoyed 59 minutes of hockey.
My first NHL memory is the 04-05 lockout. Yipes.
Well, what's yours? Share!
