The bouncing orange ball of a street hockey game seems insignificant. But not on Tuesday afternoon.
That's when Paul Gaustad, Patrick Kaleta
and assistant coach James Patrick hit the pavement with 72 kids from Camp Good Days in Williamsville, N.Y.
The sounds of laughter and trampling feet were a comfort to what hardships these children have had to endure in their everyday lives.
