There are no former hockey players.

There's missing teeth. 

There is feeling shame. 

There's flashy leather. 

There are empty cases... and backup cases. 

There's ample flow. 

There's creamy Alfredo. 

There's net splash. 

There's playing guilty. 

There's 14 missed text on your phone. 

There are stories that never leave the room. 

There's buddies that turn into brothers. 

...But there are no former hockey players.
