I attended a motivational talk given by a good friend of mine and this cartoon came to mind. I guess just like hockey we need to be looking at goal we set for ourselves. I remember 5 years ago I set a goal to do just art and I guess you could say that I SCORED!

According to the Academy of General Dentistry:
•Almost one-third of all dental injuries are due to sports-related accidents;
• During a single athletic season athletes have a 10% chance of suffering a facial or dental injury;
•An athlete is 60 times more likely to sustain damage to teeth when not wearing a mouthguard;
• The total rehabilitation cost for a single knocked-out tooth are more than 20 times the cost of a quality professional mouthguard --and lifetime dental rehabilitation costs can exceed $15,000 per lost tooth.

Here's what I'm going to do, for this cartoon above, you come up with a caption and in exchange for using your caption, I will acknowledge your name and send you a copy of the cartoon that you can frame. I will be taking captions until Friday, January 25. I will choose the best caption and post it Friday. Have fun with it. Who's talking to the guy slipping on the ice, is it a team mate, a fan, the referee? You decide. Send caption in comment.

I've created FACEOFF to share my view of hockey through a illustrators viewpoint. I grew up in Camrose Alberta... hockey country, where kids lived and breathed hockey. We were in league hockey, we played road hockey, pond hockey, hockey in outdoor rinks til 2:00 am in the morning under northern lights. Many Canadians share similiar memories. I don't play much other than the odd shinny game with my sons, but I still enjoy a good game on tv. My one son and I are Canucks fans and other son a Leafs fan. We get along.
I hope you enjoy the humor in my reconstructed memories of hockey... Canada's game.
