Then, this morning, he picked up some practice time with the Waterloo, Iowa Black Hawks, where he's performing his night job as country artist, singer, songwriter, entertainer tonight--probably as I type this.
WCSCourier.com wrote an article with some killer pictures and a video of Dierks and the team.

Dierks himself posted a few Twitter pics and that distinctly DB humor on the topic:
"good news: about to skate with the waterloo black hawks...bad news: can't find my cup. #fb"
"pic with the waterloo back hawks after practice.several of the guys wanted to know if i could hook them up with @taylorswift13 .good dudes #fb"
"I usually get a workout in before a show and this is a lot more fun than going to the gym," Bentley said when the morning pre-skate was over. "I just love playing hockey."
"The funny thing is I'd like to get these guy's autograph as much as they'd like to get mine," said Bentley. "I'm a huge fan of hockey, and these guys are so accomplished…I'm trying to bring hockey and country music a little closer." ~USHL
