Grandpa Is A Hockey Player

Remember I told you people who buy Laurel, Md. real estate are surrounded by athletic people?  Apparently, those athletic people include senior citizens.  I just read an article in the Gazette describing a senior hockey league here in Laurel.  The memebers of this team are 70 and older.  And get this, the local team’s name is the “Gerihatricks”!  Oh that is too funny.  The team practices and plays at the Gardens Ice House on Old Gunpowder Rd in Laurel Md.

God bless these guys.  They still suffer the same injuries as regular hockey players.  Players have shoulder injuries, knee injuries and the traditional missing teeth.  While friends of the guys can’t believe they are doing this, their wives are very happy with them.  Kind of inspirational.
