With fall and winter, we're back into the skating season - hockey and figure skating lessons, etc!

A Zamboni is an ice-resurfacing machine often seen at skating rinks and sports arenas. Named for its inventor Frank Zamboni, the vehicle is most strongly associated with the sport of ice hockey, and has long been a popular, even iconic, presence between periods at hockey games. The song is about a kid who dreams of driving one for a living. Not surprisingly, the song, like the Zamboni itself, has also become a fixture at ice arenas across North America.
