1. You still mentally pick up on minor penalties

2. You remember the “free skate” time between the pack start whistle and the jammer start whistle of each jam – extra points if you remember dragging this time out by moving your blockers over the pivot line as slowly as humanly possible!

3. Wearing belts was strategy

You used to count down from the five second warning in order to “take a knee” with only a second to spare

5. You know what poodling is

Can you think of any others? Comment below 🙂
