Hall Hockey

first_imgDid you ever play “hall hockey” as a teenager?  This was the most fun in a college dorm with the cement block walls lining the hallway.  Anything could be used as the hockey stick (broom, umbrella, or bat) and a tennis ball usually wound up as the puck.  The real skill was being able to get around the defense man in those narrow halls of my dorm without losing a lot of arm skin.  Of course, taking a bat to the shins on a missed puck was also a lot of fun.  Ho, Ho!These games could go on for long periods of time and much skin was left on the walls and several nasty bruises would show up on various parts of the anatomy.  This activity did have several pluses, though.  We weren’t at a bar, we were getting exercise, and studying was not as hard after a highly competitive game.  Unfortunately, the dorm counselors had a much different view of this than we did.  Gee, no one worried about concussions in those days.last_img read more
