My Goalie Mask

 This is my goalie mask. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

My goalie mask is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must
master my life.

My goalie mask, without me is useless. Without my goalie mask, I am
useless. I must don my goalie mask with pride. I must react faster than
my enemy who is trying to score on me. I must stop him before he scores
on me. I will...

My goalie mask and myself know what counts in this game is not the
pucks we catch, the noise of our rebounds, nor the dives we make. We
know that it is the shutouts that count. We will save...

My goalie mask is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will
learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strengths, its parts,
its accessories, its sights and its custom finish. I will ever guard it
against the ravages of the enemy and damage as I will ever guard my
legs, arms, my eyes and my head against damage. I will keep my goalie
mask clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will...

Before VOO DOO, I swear this creed. My goalie mask and myself are
the defenders of my net. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the
saviors of my team.

So be it, until victory is ours and there is no enemy, but shutouts!
