Miracle on Ice

When I was little, my parents used to flood the local field in the winter.  When it was frozen we’d get all the kids from the neighborhood together and put on our ice skates and take to our newly created skating rink to pretend we were Olympic Hockey stars winning the gold with Mike Eruzione and the Miracle team of 1980...

Oh, wait – no, that’s a scene out of The Mighty Ducks.

I live in Phoenix.

However, now you can make a skating rink for your kids in your backyard (again, provided you live somewhere that it actually gets COLD) – and, says the manufacturer, it’s big enough for those tots to “skate like the pros”.

Um….hmmmm….I’m definitely not a Hockey player or figure skater…but, ummm…welll…I’m not really certain there really is enough room there to skate like a pro.  Just guessing anyway.  Besides, the best part about ice skating is watching the Zamboni – is it not?  I just don’t think we’d be able to get one of those on there…Sure, with some elbow grease and creativity, maybe…
