Off to play Fort William

5 year veteran Mark Soares off to pound on the Fort William squad from the "nort" of Ontario.

Went through the Hockey Hall of Fame yesterday and was completely taken by most of it. Being a hockey trivia nut and Historian of the game, I was in awe of the completeness of the displays, trophies, milestone equipment pieces (including significant pucks and sticks), video etc....... There was also tributes to amateur hockey, including Junior A! The old Centennial Cup was displayed as was mention of last years RBC Champions, Weyburn Redwings (complete with one of their helmuts from the championship game!). Wouldn't it be great to win this tournament and have Mark's jersey in the same display case as a symbol of all the hard he and his mates (and previous years players and support personal too!) had put into this effort?

Off to play FW (Fort William). They are a skilled team that needs a good beating from the "Pacific Power" Express. Wish us well and I'll post after the game.

Hi to Skatesharpener, trainer, djkyle, cind, tod, wendy, sean, tracy and the rest of you who are hear in spirit for this Herculian effort.

Getting closer, I can smell it!!!

Tell the boys and coaches it's time to start dominating.
Enough of these one goal games, they are a real pain in the "back"
