What happened last night?

I came home from hockey last night, crawled into bed without a sound. When I awoke, my wife asked… “What happened last night?” as she saw i had a welt on my face.

“Hockey fight” was my response.

Here are likely the other people I had to explain my actions to:

-My employer -Co-workers

-My clients

-My kids

-The kids I coach, and their parents

-Possibly the cops.

It brings into question my judgement and character and likely “the other guys'” as well.

As a 45 year (or in my case even older) beer leaguer, that answer is probably one I/we should try to avoid having to explain.. Why a grown person who has to go to work the next day “got into it”.

Food for thought…
