Skating at the ACC

Tonight I skated at the Air Canada Centre, home of our city’s beloved Toronto Maple Leafs. One of our customers hosts an anual event which includes a two hour skate followed by a hockey game where the customer faces of against its suppliers.

Unfortunately, only one employee from each supplier is selected to play, and I wasn’t chosen as our representative. This was mostly because the person doing the choosing didn’t realize I was a huge hockey nut. Hopefully we’ll get to go again next year, and hopefully I’ll get to play; it would be amazing to play on the same ice as the pros.

Even so, the skate itself was a thrill. Stepping out on to the perfectly prepared ice, looking up at thousands of empty seats, and experiencing the atmosphere of an NHL rink from the other side of the glass was a great experience.
