Since I decided I would get skating this winter, I thought I should make sure I really could. Well, in September, the Toronto Maple Leafs had an open house one Saturday at their new training centre on Kipling Avenue. I actually got on the ice for the first time since my new knees, clutching the boards all the way. It was only a few times around that I got my confidence and left the boards for a free skate. I went to get my camera, and wouldn't you know, Wendel Clark was right there and his aide snapped our photo. Proof positive!
I came home and booked my first city skate.
