It's been almost, almost 12 hours since I was in a hockey rink. It's Thursday morning. I guess this would be day 7 of the Vancouver Winter Olympic. It's early morning and I'm here at the North Shore Winter Club to observe a hockey game featuring a lot of the local tech industry luminaries with whom I mingle plus "actual" hockey players. As soon as you open up the door to a rink specially one of these small community rink, the thing that hits you is this smell. It's also a thrill watching the players far down below working their magic being right here in ice level and seeing people doing it cos they love it, 8:00 on a weekday morning.
