Embarrassing Personal Story - As a 130lb. high school freshman, I blindsided the varsity’s starting senior fullback with a cross-check in a gym hockey intermural bringing him to his knees. I sheepishly with head on a swivel, duck and dove, hid, to avoid this giant of a man for the next three weeks of class until he forgot about the incident. Thank goodness for hockey helmets and no yearbook picture as an incoming underclassman to conceal my identity.
