    Hi Jennifer,
    I like to watch the hockey, but i don’t want to learn how to play the hockey because i think it is a hard work. It is difficult to play ice skating for me. If you need me to play hockey i think i will get seriouly injure. As a result i think hockey players are hero. So please don’t complain Canucks. Hopefully Canucks will win on wednesday.

    Hi Jennifer,
    Last Friday, I went skating with my family. I found that skating is very popular in Canada after I saw a little girl, who was less than 5 years old, could skate well. Maybe it’s the reason why hokey is so popular,too. In the future, if I have my children, I will definitely send them to learn skating and hokey while they are interested in these sports.

      Thanks for commenting, Harris. I guess I successfully “recruited” you to hockey! :)

      To be honest, I love ice-skating. There’s something special about gliding on the ice on a thin blade of steel. Even though I’m not going that fast, I feel like I’m “flying” when I’m on the ice.
