Hey that is not true!! Every kid that even thinks of playing sports dreams of the 'BIG" Game. The World Series, The World Cup, The Stanley Cup etc. It is always down by a few points/goals/runs - you get the ball/puck etc. You score the winning shot - the crowd goes WILD!!!!
I like both of your image for two reasons first they are good technically, second it is YOUR KID!! He's got all the gear on and he ready to go. Imagination is what it all about. Those muskles need excersise just like math!!

ha, street hockey is definitely a sport. I played more of that as a kid than anything else. That first shot is great.

HAHA, that first one is excellent!

First shot rocks!! Looks like he made a great save!

How could that NOT be a sport? It has all the required elements.... there's a team, ball, a goal, uniforms, equipment ........
+2 on the first shot... it's priceless .... refrigerator worthy at minimum... I'd put it in a frame!

Wonderful shots! The first shot is really great! The expression on his face is priceless. Well done.

He played hockey this year and is missing it already. We pretty much killed the garage door already! Here is the uncropped version of that first pic. He just loves Roberto Luongo lol. I just loved shooting hockey this year. I am lucky he is novice so I can grow with him
Thanks for all the feedback too! Sometimes you want to be sure you dont have your mom goggles on!

I think it's "NHL" hockey that's not a sport anymore. Or at least that's the what it's like here in the states.
(I'm just a bitter Hartford Whalers fan. Don't mind me.)

We are Vancouver Canucks fans here....I still can't talk about it. lol. Its funny cos we live in a town that has junior hockey team, the closest NHL team is about a four hr drive. I find the junior teams are just as much fun or more to watch these days.

Your canucks fans!sweet!so am i kinda. i like the junoir team more now cuz the 'nucks welll they suck now. and i take offence to that,you saying street hockey isnt a "proper" game and what not...i say its the best game(except ice hockey and volleyball hehe) great shot.if i were married and had kids i would frame at least one of 'em

I think it is, I think every kid in Canada grows up playing it. I guess I meant organized sport.

Nice pics! Street hockey is definitely a sport! They say Wayne Gretzky learnt everything during street and pond hockey so this little guy is well on his way!
Don't worry about the garage door...Sidney Crosby used to take pot shots at his mothers dryer....BUT he bought her a new one when he made the big bucks...lol.

LOL thats so true. He wants to be a goalie. lol.....guess we'll see. Hockey camp in July and back to business in Sept. At their age they all take turns being goalie. I love shooting hockey. At a junior game I saw a guy shooting with what I thought was an 10-22 or some sort of wide angle....produced some real interesting shots however I need to save for that nice white 70-200
