Well, here it is another hockey season,
So I am writing you for just one reason!
Please don't scream or curse or yell,
Remember I'm not in the NHL!
I am only eleven years old,
And can't be bought, traded or sold.
I just want to have fun and play the game,
And I am not looking for hockey fame!
Please don't make me feel I've committed a sin,
Just because my team didn't win!
I don't want to be that great you see,
I'd rather play and just be me!
This poem was written by the grandson of a former NHL player
