How do you like the updated blog header and colors? I used the new kit for the header and am pleased with how it came out. I love changing up my blog on a regular basis. I also change out my wallpaper and screen colors on the computer every month. I don't think I ever posted my November wallpaper, so here it is.
We got news this week that the high school league is requiring neck guards this season. This protects the players neck against skate lacerations. Unfortunately they have never been enforced because lacerations are so rare and the neck guards are so uncomfortable. We took Ollie to our favorite pro shop earlier this week and the good news is we found something he's pretty comfortable with. It's an under armour type shirt made by Itech with a higher neck (sort of like a mock turtle) that is made with kevlar. It's much more comfortable than the traditional neck guard and has the certification stitched right on it. We sent the information to coach and he's already approved it as fitting within the requirements. That makes Ollie a happy camper!
Ok, so I'm much more nervous about his high school tryouts this weekend than he is. Tryouts are tomorrow and Sunday morning. They are going to be skating at the Prudential Center where the Devils play. Hopefully I'll be back here on Sunday afternoon or Monday morning with good news!
Have a great weekend!
