Angie's Wild Journey

McCally-Lee Entertainment

A reality show is something I never thought I would be involved in.  When the opportunity came to me last fall, I was totally surprised.  I had no idea if this was something I wanted to do.  Many of my close family and friends told me not to participate.  That made my decision pretty hard.  I spent a lot of nights thinking about what it would mean for my family.  How would I feel about exposing my life on TV?  How would my kids, husband, family, and friends react to me being on this show?  I also thought, do I really want to bring MORE hockey into my life?  But something deep down told me I should do it.  My life has been a wild journey so far, why not add another voyage to it.  

I do care what others think of me, but never to the point that it dictates what I do.  My husband and kids were okay with it.  I also felt I had an interesting story to tell.  And while I was scared, I have never thought that should be a reason not to do something.   With a little hesitation I decided that I was going to be part of the show.  It helped that I believed in the producers.  I felt like they really wanted viewers to see what youth hockey was like in Minnesota.  I believed that then and I believe that even more now.

  I have been surprised at how much work it is to create a television show, and how much film is taken that never gets on the air.  I deal with those who don’t support the show, and those that think the show or I are out for a purpose other than to present what hockey life is like. For the most part people support me and so far I have had a great experience.  I am certainly happy that I did it and I am grateful that they saw something in me that they thought people will like to watch.  We are almost done with filming and soon the season will be half over.  It’s been a wild ride so far and I can’t wait to see where it goes from here.

INTRODUCING ANGIE

McCally-Lee Entertainment

I don't love hockey. Yes you read that right. I can list a lot of things that I love and hockey is not one of them. I am sure you are thinking. I thought you were on a show called Hockey Moms? Yes, I am a very active hockey mom and hockey wife but most of it is not by choice. Almost all of my adult life was controlled by hockey in some way. I met my husband when I was 20 and he had already been drafted. He left to play professional hockey right after we graduated from college. Over the course of the next 13 years, he played in 12 cities in 6 different counties. From the ages of 23 to 34, I moved over 20 times. I can pack and unpack a box like nobody's business. We had a lot of wonderful times and once in a life time experiences. I am thankful that my husband was able to live his passion for so many years while providing for our growing family. I am forever grateful for my time in all those places around the world as they have made me the person that I am today. But there was also a lot of heartache, stress, unwanted change, loneliness, and frustration. I loved it and hated it all at the same time. 

A car accident required my husband to retire almost 3 years ago.

It was a big change for my family, one that I was ready for. I was so hopeful that
finally my life would settle down and we could live the "normal" life that I have always wanted. Little did I know that my hockey life was starting all over again. I now find myself surrounded by even more hockey then I was before. My husband has turned his hockey playing into hockey coaching, I have two kids who play hockey, I manage their teams, and my husband and I run hockey camps in Rosemount. When not at the rink, we are watching hockey, playing knee hockey, and talking about hockey.

It is ALL hockey ALL the time. 

On the show you will see my frustration with the amount of time and energy
that goes into hockey. You will see me missing my husband when he is coaching every weekend.
You will see my annoyance with bringing my kids to early morning practices. 
You will see the stress that I sometimes feel having to manage so much hockey in our lives. 
You will see all these things but I also hope you see the joy I have for my kids when they are on the ice. How much happiness it brings me to see the love they have for the game. How my heart just melts watching my husband and kids share in the passion of this sport. Possibly you will see me start to warm up to the sport of hockey as I enjoy it through the eyes of the most important little people in my life. 

And maybe, just maybe, my love/hate for hockey will begin to be just love.
