What would a normal person do?

It's half an hour before a big game and your one-eyed mutt of a dog lifts his leg on your hockey bag that resides in the yard -- because it's not allowed in the house.

You would pretend it didn't happen and proceed with said bag directly to the rink? Isn't that the right thing to do?

Hockey crimes and misdemeanors, part 1,328

You're playing right wing on a defensive zone faceoff. Puck drops you skate out and cover the left point.

Easy enough assignment, right?

Unless you're (for example) me. Puck drops, I skate hard to cover point, forget to stop, go sliding right past him, he snatches puck, takes slapshot.

I don't need to tell you the puck where ended up.

Lesson for fellow idiot beer leaguers: it's much easier to cover the point if you're not 10 feet in back of him.
