Tied Up

"Claude Giroux #28 of the Philadelphia Flyers gets tripped up by the stick of Dougie Hamilton #27 of the Calgary Flames during the second period at Wells Fargo Center on February 29, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania."

Anything and everything happens in sports.

When one thinks they've seen it all, something new occurs. The problem with that is picturing an image before it occurs. And the real issue is that sets oneself up for failure.

What I mean is that we envision something happening. The most insane of moments - lets say - a ice hockey player upside down with their ice skates fall off midair next to them.

These dreamy type moments will probably never happen. It's a great feeling to hope it happens and be able to document it. But realistically you'll only get maybe the player in midair as thier skates probably would never come off.

Conversely, being ready. Having those grand fantasies do help capture what could actually happen.

For  Claude Giroux of the Philadelphia Flyers a quick burst between players ended up with him going a little airborne and spinning around a couple times after getting tied up by Dougie Hamilton of the Calgary Flames stick.

Not the most insane picture of the year for hockey, yet great for the game and enough to keep dreaming of even bigger hits.
