What A Dream I Made The Team
Hockey Poetry Youth Edition by M. Gordon Hunter




WHAT A DREAM

I MADE THE TEAM

When I tried out

There was no scout

Who’d seen me play before

When I walked on

I really shone

And showed them I could score

Before the net

When I am set

A shot in my direction

Will come so quick

But with my stick

I’m set for a deflection

Now I don’t fight

But on any night

I’ll do what needs be done

I chase the puck

Am prepared to muck

It really is such fun

I play both ends

With foe and friends

I can play many roles

But watch me play

And you will say

This kid can sure score goals

He applies qualitative techniques in interdisciplinary research such as small business and cross-cultural investigations. His research interests in the information systems (IS) area include the effective management of IS with emphasis on the personnel component; the role of Chief Information Officers; and the use of IS by small business. In his retirement Gordon has employed the same qualitative research techniques to investigate various aspects of hockey players and their teams.

In his younger years Gordon was a goalie. His first year of university was on a hockey scholarship. Gordon now lives in Lethbridge with his wife of 50 years, Shirley. They were in Grade 4 together and dated for 6 years before marriage. They have two sons (Jeff and Robb) and two grandchildren (Callum and Lexi).
