Czech Hockey Player
Russell's friend came to visit from the Czech Republic. His name is Marek Chvatel and he is a professional hockey player. He played on a farm team in Toronto for 2 years and then was drafted to the New Jersey Devils. He didn't make the second draft so he went home and plays for a professional team there. We took him up to the Logan Ice Arena to see him skate. It was amazing. Someone asked him when he started skating, he joked "I've been here about 20 minutes" Alison went skating for the first time. The BEST thing about the skating rink is that it was the coolest place to be on a hot day.
