If I told you your job was to purposely stand in front of a rubber disc that is screaming towards you in excess of over 80mph, that you will be crashed into, slashed, rolled on, and crushed, that you have to be the most flexible and hardest worker amongst your co-workers, that you have to be a leader and you are the last line of defense always trying to prevent a major loss, that you can take people’s breath away with the wave of your hand or ignite a fire in your co-workers by doing the impossible. Did I mention you get to wear and use the coolest looking equipment around? Would you take this job?

I’m sure most people would be running for the door, I want to know where do I sign? 🙂

I signed the contract to take this type of job somewhere in the middle of the second period of my first New York Islanders game back when I just entered Junior High School. The job I am talking about is a hockey goaltender. It is the hardest position to play in all of sports, but it is also one of the most rewarding ones as well. I have always played roller hockey over ice because when I was younger the price difference was pretty steep. My goal is to one day play ice hockey as well and finally get to slide across the rink properly. 🙂

In the world of goaltending you need to know your angles if you want to excel. The GoalieAngle is about my perspective (angle if you will) on the art and science of being a netminder. I am going to provide the best ways I know how to protect that 24 square foot area behind you and keep those pucks from crossing the goal line. I have never played at a collegiate, minor, or professional level. However, you would be hard pressed to find another person who is as passionate as I am about being a goaltender.
