My son is 3 years old. For the last couple of years, my wife and I have been hands off when it comes to really pushing any sports or activities onto my son. Not really for any reason, more or less because we were interested to see where his interests took him on his own. When he was an infant, I noticed that he seemed to be more into football on Sunday afternoons than watching a hockey game with me. (Now that I look back on it though, I’m much more relaxed during football games, so there’s that.) When he turned 1, one of his uncles brought home a mini-stick set from a trip. The thing that surprised me was the fact that he didn’t skip a beat. He knew exactly what to do with a hockey stick. Talk about setting up a discussion based around Nature or Nurture.

Admittedly, I am addicted to fantasy hockey. This is possibly due to my competitive nature but more likely due to the fact I was never able to skate good enough to play hockey so it was the only way to compete in the sport I loved to watch. Anyway, beyond fantasy hockey I also enjoy rambling so I figured I might as well combine the two. After all my other article series on this site, Around the Arena, tends to be more informative, so it only made sense to have a less formal series to alternate that with. So without further ado here are my 4 biggest thoughts related to fantasy hockey in the last 2 1/2 weeks.
