One thing that's kind of interesting about N's new hockey team is that the coaches, who are young academic hipsters and hockey fanatics (i.e., they've both played at a high level), are implementing a dress code. Nothing too crazy, but the players are being asked to wear khaki pants and an oxford shirt to games; ties and coats are optional. I think it's cool since it makes the kids embrace a certain degree of respect for the game, and by extension, themselves. As I mentioned the coaches are young (compared to me) and played real deal hockey. The head coach played junior hockey in Canada, which I think is one step away from the pros, while the other coach played college hockey at Rensselaer, which RR might appreciate.
Whatever be the case, I think N is into it because not only is he respectful of the game and the coaches, but he likes wearing ties. Lord knows he's got enough of them, including all of mine. Plus, he looks good when he dresses up.
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Ellen for the pic.
