Curtis Joseph's favourite sport was baseball. He had played for a few years, mainly as a short-stop. He was not overly excited or intrigued for hockey. He was not confident enough in his ability for hockey to pursue it. He was happy playing baseball but he was wanting to play hockey too.
Man I love baseball!
At the position of goaltender, Curtis realized how much he enjoyed hockey and that he may be good enough to make a career out of it. Therefore, he became a goalie and ended up in the NHL. After becoming a goalie, he became more confident and proud of his hockey ability and that made him want to pursue it.
Wow! I enjoy hockey so much more! I am better as a goalie!
