Ode to that Grimy, Terrible, Amazing Hockey Rink

My best friend nearly lost an eye here. I was once given a two-handed slash to my shin that was so hard I had a welt the size of a golf ball for months. The goals scored, tantrums thrown, and screaming matches exchanged here were enumerable. I don’t think anyone actually knows who Bill Ward…
