But the thing that really grabbed my attention was a notice printed out on single sheets of computer printer paper, scotch taped to the rink Plexiglas windows which stated " No Chewing Tobacco out on the rink." My reaction was Oh my Gaud---ewwwwwww. I next wondered is this a hockey thing or an unwashed public thing?
|Is chewing tobacco spital a common thing or a hockey thing?|
Is this a problem at your rink? It's news to me--lips that touch chew will never touch mine. Up til now I've thought that it's bad enough to skate over stick-on skating passes which have liberated themselves from their purchasers. But then I probably live a sheltered life.
Well, although the rink was heaving with people, ice time is ice time. No lick-spital was encountered yesterday by your diarist.
