Humboldt bus crash recalls memories of team bus ride rituals

When he played for the Humboldt Broncos, the shortest trip Austin Duzan took on the team bus was an hour and 20 minutes. Most were much longer.

“It becomes your home away from home, right?” said Duzan, who played for the Broncos from 2014 to 2016, starting as an 18-year-old. “Sometimes six hours on the bus before a game, then you play three hours, and then you’re back on the bus for six hours.”

Even then, Humboldt didn’t have it as bad as other teams Tony Dorsett Youth Jersey in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League.

“We were fortunate enough to play in the middle of the division. For people going from Estevan to Flin Flon, that’s a pretty good hike.”

The team bus is a special place for anyone who played junior hockey. It’s a place of close bonding and community for teenaged players who, in most cases, have left their hometowns and their families to chase their hockey dreams.

Players ride the bus in junior leagues all over the world, but http://www.index69.com/davis-webb-jersey-c-1_21.html hockey on the prairies takes it to a particular extreme. The distances are vast, the towns are tiny, and you’re driving in the dead of winter — frequently in whiteout conditions or http://www.yeoudi.com/channing-frye-jersey-c-1_16.html with temperatures well below -30 degrees Celsius.

It’s a rite of passage with resonance in Philip Rivers Youth Jersey Saskatchewan, home of the legendary Gordie Howe. In Kyle Juszczyk Jersey Womens the modern era, Saskatchewan produces more NHL players per capita than any other province, with its neighbour Manitoba as the only real competitor. This is hockey heartland by any http://www.metaindice.com/eric-kendricks-jersey-c-1_39.html definition.

When Ryan Shields heard the Broncos team bus had suffered a horrific, deadly crash on Friday, it immediately brought him back twenty years to his days riding the bus with the Kindersley Klippers.

“All the stories we talk about these days are the crazy stuff that happened when we’re on the bus,” he said.

“I could tell you probably a dozen different bus stories from playing in Kindersley, and I would honestly struggle to tell you a dozen different in-game stories. As a junior hockey player, you’re on the bus more than you’re not, really. I was closer to any of those teammates of mine, from the amount of time I spent with them in a single season, than I was to my sisters.”

The China Property Forum is an economics and finance forum dedicated to discussion of Chinese and global real estate markets, including China house prices, global house prices, housing affordability, and the likelihood of a global house price crash or China house price crash. Is there a Chinese housing bubble? Will house prices crash, boom or stagnate? Is it better to buy using a home loan, or rent and save the difference? How might a credit crunch or peak debt environment impact Chinese property prices? Is the Chinese property market a pyramid scheme or Ponzi scheme? Can house prices rise forever as people bet on future gains, refinance their mortgage and borrow against equity, or can we find a more sustainable long term approach to managing the Chinese housing market? These are the type of questions we hope to address here, at the China Property Forum, the premier real estate site for property bears, bulls, investors, and speculators! Whether you're a Property Investor, First Home Buyer (FHB) or you're a happily renting tenant, this forum has something for everyone. The forum includes a blog feature, so members may create their own property blog.
