I'm used to old-fashioned things like three-legged races, frisbee toss and face painting at festivals and social gatherings. Nowadays the thing seems to be sumo wrestling. You put on these heavy, inflatable-like weighted suits and go against an opponent. First one to push the other out of the circle is the winner. The hardest part about it was refraining from laughing long enough to actually gather the strength to fight. It was smiles all around.
This appears to be a regular play; the goalie is keeping an eye on the player from the opposing team rounding the back of the net with the puck, but take note of the placement of the butt end of the goalie's stick:
Taking a good hockey action photo is difficult. Personally, I'd want to see some ice flying, an emotional face, a puck and some stick movement in the frame to communicate the stress of the moment. Of course I didn't capture anything like that at the hockey game last weekend, which was a disappointment. That was made up, however, by the background crowd that I found I could tell more of a story with by imagining different speech bubble scenarios. And it was a good prompt for me to learn how to draw them to boot.
The best game you can name is the good ole hockey game.
