Interestingly enough, the best athletes tend to do less organized leagues when they are younger and more pickup games to develop their skills.

Aka I'll put all my money on a kid playing pickup pond hockey in Canada for hours each day and doesn't play on an organized team vs some kid who only plays on hockey teams in organized leagues with minimal weekly practices and low playing time during games.

So its a tad ironic...that parents who want their kids to get scholarships and go pro put them on all these teams, when they probably just need to spend more time practicing skills in a more unorganized and fun way.

That and someone needs to help that 51yr old lady to get over her past, stop thinking herself as a victim, and move on in a more positive manner in life without looking backwards.
