Live the Dream!- Women's Hockey Life
What it means to Live the Dream
By: M.J. Bonevelle
I am very excited to be blogging for this site, and I want to promote it as much as possible. So, the other day, I found myself affixing my “Live the Dream” sticker to the back of my car, and I started thinking, “What is this dream anyway?”
For me, hockey literally did start with a dream. Six years ago, I was at an AHL game--the Grand Rapids Griffins were my local team. I had been to many of their games, was an avid fan of the Red Wings and the Griffins, but I had never played hockey of any sort before or even been on skates. I was purely a spectator and not a participant, as were almost all the gals my age in West Michigan. In fact, I knew very few guys who played either.
