Well it was Hockey Day in Belarus and the teams were pumped. The Chausy Orphanage team had been practicing all winter and had placed very well in the standings. The Canadian Team was made up of mostly old guys who had not played hockey since 1965 along with some Belarussian drivers standing in as Canadians.
Byron Boone shows how to put on our gear.
No size advantage here! They still beat us 6 – 4!
Afterwards all of the kids got to go skating for 2 hours. There was also pop, chips and chocolate bars for everyone.
The happy skaters!
Vitalli said that the children will remember this day for the rest of their lives!
PS: A note to my wife, I think I’m in love … how many do you want???
