Two men, two very different sports and one rink-sharing ice has never been so hot. Olivier 'Big Bang' St Pierre is back in his hometown while he recovers from being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Hockey's a contact sport-still, he didn't count on the locker room being dangerous. As a professional hockey player, he also didn't count on it being hard to find ice time. But when a rink shuts down unexpectedly in a winter-sport-crazy town, even being a big name won't help as people scramble for whatever they can get. The first time Ethan Campbell hears from the local hockey legend he knew as a kid, Olivier manages to insult both his family's rink and his new sport-curling. So he's not exactly receptive when Olivier shows up in person to plead his case. He makes a sarcastic offer...and is shocked when Olivier takes him up on it. Ethan's bad experience with hockey had left him cold. But soon he and Olivier are burning up the ice. Ethan is tied to his town, job and family, while Olivier will be going back to Chicago to rejoin his team as soon as he's able. It can't possibly last...can it?
One of the best ways to learn something is to write it down. That's how the Good Sportsmanship Journal for soccer can help your new player understand how good sportsmanship is an important part of practice and games. Plenty of journal pages with helpful pointers are included to take notes about what's experienced. And at the end there's even a Certificate of Good Sportsmanship!
