I have taken many a baseball to the ribs, back, and arms and legs. I have had soccer balls tag me, and been hit by football players. I have always just called it part of the game. Tonight I got scared. I was shooting a high school hockey game. I was on a step ladder, high enough my head and camera were above the ice (no holes in the dirty, dirty, scuffed, scratched glass). During a face off right in front of me the puck shot up, up, and up right at me. I was able to dodge a little, ok, I flinched. The puck nailed my pocket wizard for my strobes and pulled it right off of my camera. (Camera and PW are fine). This changed the puck direction and it rolled right along the side of my head and ripped my cap right off of my head. I got lucky. If it was not for my Pocket Wizard, I would have a puck embedded in my forehead. So all you hockey players take care. You never know.
I posted this about a 5 or 6 years ago, but it is applicable today as we will be moving into baseball soon.
