Howling Wolverines

This summer I’ll be playing hockey with the Howling Wolverines, a team we played against last season. There are a number of players on the team I’ve played with before, and the rest seem like a good bunch. Yesterday afternoon I had the opportunity to meet them at a team barbeque and scrimmage at the organizer’s home and local rink in Vaughan.

Being up at a new subdivision in the suburbs was a good opportunity to contrast living in a new house farther away with living in an older house, as we do, within the city. When we first started house hunting, we began looking north of the city, but soon decided we preferred to stay within the city’s borders. Both have their advantages, and everyone needs to choose what’s most important to them. For me, spending a couple hours every day in my car is something I am very happy to avoid. And given the neighborhood and house we found, I think we’ve managed to have the best of both worlds.
