Like a lot of different sports or hobbies, most of us have an inspiration or influence that drove us to begin our passion. I’ve never really thought of writing or posting an article and video on this subject until on the 15th Dec 2011 at 2am in the morning. An old movies from the 90’s came on, you know the one! Yes, it was the Mighty Ducks D2 (of 3 different parts D1, D2 and D3). For those of you who haven’t seen the movie or cartoon, here a small introduction
“The Mighty Ducks is a series of three live-action films and one animated film released in the 1990s by Walt Disney Pictures. The movies revolve around aTwin Cities ice hockey team, composed of young players that stick together throughout various challenges. Despite its negative reviews by movie critics, the trilogy’s commercial success paved the way for the creation of the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, (now the Anaheim Ducks) NHL team as well as a relatedanimated series called Mighty Ducks.”
If you haven’t already seen it, I strongly recommend watching it. But anyways, this movie reminded me of the reason I began playing and skating, it was an inspirational movie and I’m sure it still is to this day. I wanted to find out how others have been influenced or inspired to take up the sport and hopefully inspire others to start learning.
So please watch the video included and post your personal inspiration or influence for getting back into the sport (skating and hockey) or taking the sport up in the first place, it would be great to hear how we all got started.
