A new hobby — and a new blog!

skatingThis summer, I am going to learn how to play hockey.

I am going to blog about it too.

I’d like to introduce my third hockey blog, entitled The Hockey Noob, where I discuss what it is like to be an adult learning how to play hockey. I will also talk, from a beginner’s point of view, about equipment and training, and share advice I get from experts.

This blog is a part of the Chicago Now blog network, which is owned by The Chicago Tribune.

For those of you who thought about playing hockey, but did not know where to start — this is the blog for you.

Regardless of your past hockey experience, though, please check out  my first post on The Hockey Noob, and please leave a Facebook comment at the bottom.

And if you are feeling especially generous, please “Like” The Hockey Noob Facebook page.

  1. Good luck Sal! I played for almost 14 years growing up and it was a great experience the entire time. I’m not on Facebook but I’ll be reading along for sure.

  2. I’ve always said hockey is the toughest sport to master—you have to be able to skate–and then have the other skills like taking a pass, staying onside and be aware of your team mates and opposition—but its the best sport
