On a small sheet of ice, ringed by a rustic frame of cattails, the boys of winter play their game. The pond hockey season below the Mason-Dixon line can have the lifespan of a mayfly, so they embrace the moment with all the energy of an end-to-end rush. This is hockey as nature intended: pure, uncomplicated, joyous. No one complains about having to shovel the surface clear of snow or when slush soaks sweatpants as a skidding puck throws up a rooster tail of spray. Backpacks and winter boots mark goals and everyone is a referee.
