A Threat to the Hockey Team

Each child has talents and Dee always loved to skate
One night at the lake she was called up to the plate
The high school hockey team was “slip-sliding away”*
So call her a chauvinist; Dee wanted to play
But when the coach recruited her for the team
One boy offered a bottle of shaving cream
They couldn’t skate backward; Dee sure showed them how
Stealing their puck, she curtseyed and took a bow
Take it from Dee, men don’t like to be upstaged
By her free-flowing glide the boys were outraged
When it came time for the school’s holiday dance
To find a date, this skater hadn’t a chance

    loved this couplet story, Carolyn... I could picture it oh so well . Used to film a bar's hockey game for a while When I was in my twenties a little girl named Tammy, daughter to a friend of mine trained me how to throw a perfect bullet pass in football.... never really could before her lessons... She was about ten at the time. She was awesome. also excelled in the other sports too .She is a Mom with 2 children now and I'm sure they will throw a mean bullet pass too! good luck. great story

    Hummpff - no place for macho guys. More power to Dee. I never minded working with women, so long as they were in the kitchen, pregnant and barefoot. Just kidding. There is very little difference between men and women, but HOORAY for that little difference! Luck in the contest. Love, Old Macho Dave
