In yet another step of our big sports transition, N has indicated that he would be amenable to playing LAX in the big city, thus completing our exodus from the old lame program. To be fair, it makes sense to transition, and not just because of my bitterness, which of course makes perfect sense to me. In the old lame program, most of the guys he would consider to be his friends have moved on, either to high school, or just out of the game. He has one, maybe two guys on the team that he could consider his friends, but otherwise, it's a group of guys he doesn't have much connection to. Plus, they all go to the same middle school, which kind of leaves him on the periphery.
At the big city program, not only are some of these guys on his current hockey team, but they will be his classmates in HS. I'm not saying he's going to be best buddies with these guys, but he likes them, and they're actually nice, down to earth kids who seem to include him. And, you don't see the inflated egos that were so prevalent in the old lame program.
Whatever be the case, we're moving ahead with this and I'm A-Okay with it. Plus, as I've said on countless occasions, more of our lives are over in the big city, so we might as well just add to the mix. We'll see how this one goes.
Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to C.C. Chapman for the pic.
