I was about several years outdated when our mom signed me up for playing hockey. When I was younger, our skating form was talked about by other parents as incredibly graceful, so it’s no surprise that our parents want me to use our skills on the ice. Over the Summer, our parents gladly stuck around to watch every 1 of our practice days – but I spent most of it shivering from the industrial grade cooling system they used to keep the rink cold. They never missed a single game, even if I was benched. At the time, I thought it was because they just wanted me to stop playing video games all day after university, however now I suppose they wanted me to play a sport, make some friends & maybe become a professional player! Oh, & they also did it to be in an ice-cold building for thirds at a time. Did I mention every one of us live in the deep south? Summer days here are still in the mid-eighties, so you have to beat the heat in some way. For them, it was heavenly to sit in the stands, & embrace the cold shivers that come from having a powerful a/c method blasting cold air at them. They’d spend the whole ride home, talking about how good I was – & also talk about how comfortable it is at the ice rink. They were obsessed with the a/c method used at that locale! Funny thing is, it’s refrigerant being pumped through the rink’s floor which makes the ground so cold. It’s enjoy the opposite of radiant floor heating! I bet our parents would enjoy a method enjoy that at their own home. Of course they wouldn’t need it now, since our folks moved way up north after I moved out. Nowadays, all they talk about is how they enjoy to wear a sweater & use their oil furnace every day.
