Is Hockey Just a Game? Check out this poem!

Just a Game
                   by Matt Colclough
                                         age 17
Some say it's just a game. 
But I disagree. 
It ain't a game, no it's way more.
From 5 am practices to waking up at midnight 'cuz you're too excited to

Nah it ain't just a game. 
It's a passion, a calling, a way of life. 
Something you commit every fiber of your body to perfecting, but never can. 
Nah it's not just a game. 
Losing a game doesn't bring 17 and 18 year old young men to tears. 
No game has ever united an entire county. 
Nah hockey ain't a game, it's way more. 

Special thanks to Matt's mom for sharing her son's hockey poem with us!  Matt is a defenseman with the Baldwinville Varsity Hockey team.  Great job Matt!
