Hard to believe one year has passed since the unveiling at the Sid Smith Artificial Ice Rink at Christie Pits. Yesterday, Blaine Smith and I were at the rink to participate in a video shoot. It was nice to see the signage in-place and community members enjoying a game of shinny on the ice.

And as Sid Smith told Jack Batten back in 1975, "I played pretty near every sport you can think of done there. In the winter it was pick-up hockey. Strictly shinny, you know, but that's a hell of a way to learn."

I couldn't help but think, as we watched a new generation, if there was another Sid Smith developing his/her skills.
