Western Champions on their Way to International Victory

Plaster Rock Pond Hockey

(This is an article submitted by a guest writer….. my sister-in-law, who is AT the International Pond Hockey Championship to keep us updated.  Here you go: www.worldpondhockey.com … if ya wanna have a peak at what our hockey-obsessed husbands are doing this weekend.  Their schedule is in the comments section.)
Western Pond Hockey champions, the 100 Mile Anti-Freeze, have been bought out and moved to Arizona. Half the players were traded, but the remaining players are determined to carry the Anti-Freeze torch with pride, regardless of its location. Their next tournament begins on Feb-7th in Plaster Rock, New Brunswick.  When asked how he felt about the upcoming tournament, star forward, Terry Crosby, said, “We’re disappointed to be playing for an American team, but pleased to still be playing on Canadian soil.”  Third alternate team captain, Mark Doolan, expressed his concerns, “We’ve been undefeated so far, I just hope the new guys can keep up.  It’s difficult to make such drastic changes mid-season, but we’ll just have to stay focussed.”

The legacy of Canadians lending strength to American teams goes deep into history. Individuals such as Wayne Gretzky and Steve Nash know what’s it like to tough it out in Arizona, separated from their homeland. Neither Gretzky nor Nash were available for comment, but it goes without saying that at this week’s tournament they’ll be rooting for the Arizona Anti-Freeze.
