Day 17: Shots till eight

17 : Shots till eight

July 23, 2011

When he was a kid, he'd be up at five
Take shots till eight, make the thing drive
Out after school, back on ice
That was his life, he was gonna play in the big league
The big league

Big League, Tom Cochrane

This image always reminds me of Big League. Not the bad parts, just the part about the kid taking shots till eight.

It's about 7:55AM and we're on our way out the door to catch the school bus. As usual, Craig is ready before me, so he waits outside. When I opened the door to come outside, I saw him taking shots. I quietly closed the door, took out my iPhone and fired up Hipstamatic.

As I walked back out the door towards Craig, I was able to get 4 shots before he stopped. This was the last one.

If you look close, you can even see the ball heading towards the net.

The first 3 shots of the series:
