“The Buddy System is a procedure in which two people, the “buddies,” operate together as a single unit so that they are able to monitor and help each other.”
Advantages: In adventurous or dangerous activities, where buddies are often required, the main benefit of the system is improved safety; each may be able to prevent the other becoming a casualty or rescue the other in a crisis.

Don’t ask me why, but I think the “One Goal” commercials have outlived their usefulness. We know them all by now; “Be the first one here every day,” “Be the goalie’s worst nightmare,” “Be the best ‘Johnny’ on the team,” “Make sure these guys are achieving their goals,” “Learn how to drink and attend concerts,” ‘Become a better rapper,” “Say two words – Hawks Win,” “Stop more pucks than the goalie,” blah, blah, blah. Just when I thought they couldn’t get any sappier, they show Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook in one that at least made me smile.
