When he got them in right he stood; his right wobbled a little, but his left felt altogether too tight. Was it too tight? Skates were supposed to be tight, so you didn’t twist an ankle, like he was damn sure he would if he didn’t give his right laces at least another tug.

He hadn’t played hockey in twenty-two years.”
