Just a Game
by Matt Colclough
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.
