  • By Jeremy EllisIt was an action packed weekend here in St. Louis and we are finally all wrapped up and ready to ship out of town.  58 games over 3 days are what we brought to the Gateway City.  Five divisions competed this weekend in a sold event that brought hockey, friends and competition together under one roof.  As I mentioned in an earlier blog, we shared the rink with a dog show this weekend.  It was one of those obstacle course events where the dogs jump and run through hoops, pretty

  • By Lonny Lovins  Our time in Hawaii has ended for another year, but we are eternally grateful for the hospitality we were shown while we were here.  The weather always treats us well, and the Hawaiians treat us even better.  While this tournament was mostly a battle for Hawaii, it was a heated battle that brought us a lot of great games in our final day of play.  Mite Division - The Mite final was an interisland battle between team Maui and the KIHA Warriors.  This game was a battle of will

  • I felt like I shut my computer for 30 minutes before my iPhone alarm went off. Time to get up and head to breakfast. Our Pama Cyclones team had a big semi final game against the Tour Mudcats at 11am. I headed down to breakfast with my roommate Brin Morris to grab a quick bite. I switched it up today and went for the pancakes and blueberry muffins instead of the normal french toast and muffins. I must say, the Embassy Suites here in Hawaii has a delicious and outrageous selection. Then off to t

  • By Jeremy Ellis We get set to light the lamp for the final times here in Missouri.  Three championship games remain in Mens Silver and Bantam Gold and Silver here at the Matteson Tri-plex.  It has been a great weekend complete with new friends and exciting action.  The Finals today have been intense.  While we are yet to see an overtime game today, the games have been close and the battles have been teetering on the edge.  The hockey community here is pretty familiar with one another and th

  • Honestly, never in a million years did I think that I'd be in Hawaii playing roller hockey. I've been so blessed and fortunate to play all over the United States and in Canada but.... Hawaii???My trip started out bright and early Thursday morning. NY-LaGuardia Airport to Houston Texas to Honolulu Hawaii. A long 12-13 hour haul was worth it the second we landed in Hawaii.Within seconds of getting off my flight I had text messages to come out and meet up with everyone. The roller hockey community

  • By Jeremy Ellis Well day is turning to night here in Missouri and the older divisions are starting to hit the floor.  But along the way we wrapped our Atom division with the finals in the Silver and Gold division.   The effort put forth by the coaches and staffs here locally to put together a complete Atom division was amazing.  With four teams we were able to have both a Silver and Gold final and all the teams played for Gold and SIlver medals.  That taste of getting to a final at such a yo

  • By Lonny Lovins                We pulled into the KIHA parking lot this morning, and it struck me how excited people get for this tournament.  It was roughly 7:00 am, and already the easy up tents were set up in the parking lot and people were bustling around ready to start play.                When we walked into the rink I was impressed with how clean and well laid out the place is.  I should not be surprised, since I was here last year, but sometimes once the i

  • By Jeremy Ellis Well I made it to good old St. Louis!  Wish I could say the same about my luggage.  My white linen suits and panama hats may be lost forever...but I digress.   Its good to be back in the 'Show me State' as we continue the long road to the 2014 Finals.  The locals welcomed us with open arms by showing us great hospitality and even better hockey.  24 teams are lacing up the skates this weekend with action across 5 divisions.  A great deal of hard work went into making this ev
