BOBBI MATTSON - Calgary Rath, NRL and Team Canada 2010 December 20, 2010
Name - Bobbi Mattson
My first teeny bopper years of ringette I played for PSA Ringette. And I have been playing for Calgary 'AA' (please don't make me remember allll the names of my teams haha) ever since I hit Tween. The one year that really stands out is my first year belle; I played for the Calgary AA Altius - we went undefeated the entire season (including nationals) and we even came close to beating the Cambridge Turbo's during an exhibition fun game in Ontario after a belle tournament.And for the past 3 seasons I have been playing for the Calgary Rath in the National Ringette League.
And I have only recently started coaching. Last year was my first official year of coaching. I helped coached the Calgary Junior AA Forte. I will also be helping coach one of the Calgary Junior AA teams this year as well.
Number - For most of my ringette life I've been #31 - but on TC I'm #30.
Years played ringette - 15 years
Current Ringette team/last team played for - Calgary Rath & Team Canada
Favorite part of being a Ringette Goalie - Being in the spotlight - making the big time saves and getting all the "oohs" and "ahs". I also really enjoy stoning fellow teammates or friends on other teams. Just for bragging rights after the game.
School or job description - Parts Canada - Motorcycle/ATV Shop Supervisor
Book you’re reading now - An Autobiography of an L.A Gang Member
Best Gift Received - Book - The 16th Round - Autobiography of Rubin Hurricane Carter - It's my favorite book of all time! I couldn't find it anywhere for years. It's a rare print book.
Life Lesson - Focus on the process, not the result.
Favorite Movie - Transformers 1&2 & Mr. & Mrs. Smith. (you can't make me pick between the two.)
Nickname - Goalie nickname - The Flash
Trickiest Player to play against - Sala Kyhala (I think that's how you spell it). I think only because I know most the West players I play against. I know most of their tendencies or I guess you could say 'tricks.'
Pet Peeve - People who stare. It drives me nuts!!
Question: If you weren't a Goalie, what would you be? I probably wouldn't be in Ringette. I would probably pursue and continue playing Rugby. Or I would be a personal trainer. I love to kick people's butt's in the gym.
Favorite actor/actress - Movie actress - Angelina Jolie. Reality TV - Jillian Michaels - she is everything I would dream to be.
