Hockey Mom’s aren’t Crazy re-posted this one the other day… I forgot how true this hockey meme it is… All through out the week I try to make time for hockey… hence “make” time not find time… make it happen… even if you are just stick handling with a golf ball for 30 seconds… always make time for your happy place!
Upper Corner Hockey
Just the other day… I took out 30 minutes of my busy day to snipe some backhand Upper corner #bardown and in (posted on vine.co)

Dents… pain to put together… not that easy to store and still the best investment I’ve ever made! Yes I know it sounds like a complaint… they are all legit too.. But even with all the down fail of the EZ hockey goal... there is more good that comes out of it… I have more time to hockey snipe and work on my game… I use to have to go to the local rink to practice… now I can practice at the comfort of my own home… I am just loving every minute of it.. See video below
Watched an interview with Will Smith the other day… yes the Fresh Prince! In that interview he talked about always being ready… I couldn’t agree more… So my point is… This off-season don’t let your hockey gear collect dust… You can do other things (sports, swim, surf, etc) don’t get me wrong… Staying active and having fun is the best way to stay in shape but there is nothing else more fun than hockey so get out and hockey snipe!
Well I put my money where my mouth is… and bought an EZ Goal with backstop! I’ve been so busy (and that is no excuse) to get to the outdoor local rink lately… It is also still covered with snow and slush (again still no excuse) ok these are all bad excuses I must say… So I finally ordered an EZ Goal… with the added backstop so I don’t have to be chasing pucks when I am trying to go Upper Corner all the time… I know I know what you are thinking… “Brent, what happened to your shooting tarp?” I still have it… but I miss the sound of ringing that pipe! Also hard to use (absolutely impossible actually) to use my radar gun with the hockey Shooting Tarp. So my “Goal” (pun intended) is to set up this goal and shoot a lot more… Now that I’ll have access at my house to shoot there will be no excuse… Lets just hope the neighbors don’t mine me hockey sniping right before the sun goes down!
I”ll keep ya posted and click the link before if you are looking for an EZ Goal

“play it where it lies” and old golfing term… People find it except able to go to a driving range… batting cages… etc… so why not a hockey snipe range? Well I found this little patch of ice early in the winter season and took full advantage of it… the ice was a bit chunky and not very smooth but beggars can’t be choosers! Use what ya go and get out and Hockey Snipe! #hockeysnipe #uppercorner #hockey
While everyone watched that “big game” I trekked out into the elements or aka snow… to the ODR aka Outdoor Rink (lots of AKA’s tonight)… I knew no one would be there so I got some quality time alone… the ice was extra chunky and really in horrible conditions… but yet again it was “free ice time” so i didn’t care and made the best of it… watch the video below!
Look I get it… the rink is frozen… I’ve seen skate marks but the gate still remains locked… The reason why I say “i get it” because the township workers have better things to do than to patrol the local ice rink to see if some old dude that wakes up at the crack of dawn wants to get some free ice time! Still I sure wish it was open! The ice was thin and the ground is cold making the ice easy to freeze! Here is another photo below of Greystone rink or aka Central Park of Morris County ice rink frozen over! First time of the year 2014 and 2015 winter!
But all wasn’t lost! I went over to rink #2 and found a frozen patch of ice… took some shots off it… I posted the video on Vine and #boom the damn video went viral! I guess no one has ever seen someone shoot off a frozen puddle of water lol! still great stuff and my first real “viral” video on vine see video below
Again I am in complete shock… this one might be one of those viral videos that could make or break someone… or not lol! Happy Hockey New Year everyone!
I just been loving this time off from work… I been trying to get to what ever rink I can and enjoy some sniping action! This Monday I hit up the soaked out door rink and sniped a few in honor of Slo Mo Monday #slomomonday. Check out the video below and hope you’ve all been enjoying your holiday!
