The answer is in hockey.

Facing and Beating the tragic trio- with hockey
The tragic trio of human existence, guilt for our past, pain in the present, and death in the future.
But where can this encounter be sought?
Where can pain be found on demand? Where can we meet guilt head on and cleanse ourselves? Where can we experience death and then return?
The answer is in hockey.

Hockey is where an entire life can be compressed in a few hours, where emotions of a lifetime can be felt in a hockey rink, where a person can suffer and die and rise again in 60 short minutes.

Transcending conflicts.

Hockey is a theatre where sinner can turn saint, and a common man become an uncommon hero, where the past and future can fuse with the present. Hockey is singularly able to give us peak experiences where we feel completely with the world and transcends all conflicts as we finally become our own potential.

We know that hockey is where we live, where we can best meet and overcome pain and wrong and death. Life is just a place where we spend time between games.
