I thought it would be fun to share some video that my parents shot of my siblings and me when we were kids. The video below, from the ‘70’s, is of us playing hockey and skating at our house in Boston. Each winter, if the winter weather cooperated, my dad would build a rink in our yard so we could burn off energy and pretend to be Bobby Orr, Phil Esposito or one of the other Bruin greats! I think this video is evidence to a couple of things:
- My dad was a hard-working man dedicated to his family. If he was not working at his full-time job, he was working on the house or spending time with his children.
- Hockey was not my sport.
- As a boy with ten older siblings and two younger siblings, I always had someone to play with!
