"Recently the temperature here in Michigan dipped into the high 50s during the night. Of course, I immediately thought hockey is getting close."
-- Paul Kukla
The next day, it was back to reality. The weather almost hit 90 degrees with the humidity to match. I thought, oops ... the ice is going to melt.
I'm always thinking hockey on a regular basis. I see numbers while driving, things such as speed limit signs and gas station prices, and I attach player numbers to those numbers.
