Well, we're a bit late, but Chris Koh got married and it needs to be celebrated! Per his request, let's go play hockey on Bainbridge Island.
Saturday, April 27th we'll once again board the ferry and make the journey to the pristine rink on Bainbridge Island. Food and drinks down on the water in Bainbridge afterwards. I'll post more details as it gets closer....so for now, just mark you calendars.

If anyone is interested, I'm happy to have a BBQ at my place after hockey this Saturday. The weather is still supposed to be nice, so let's take advantage. I'll even DVR the Rangers/Devils game so people can watch it. Feel free to bring spouses, kids, friends etc. I'll have some burgers, dogs, beer etc, but feel free to bring whatever you'd like.

It's that time of year again for the Prost ski trip. Gregg Schneuer and myself organize this event for the bar each year, and it's a hell of a lot of fun. We meet at Prost at 6:30am, take off for the mountain by 7am on a very nice touring charter bus, ski all day (on a weekday, so the… Continue

(sorry to usurp your post Alan)
Let's run off our turkey and play some hockey this Saturday. And as an added bonus, after we can celebrate Jason's birthday. He's getting old and may not have many more. There's lots of games on Saturday, including the Apple Cup, so I figure we can head out in Ballard and catch a game and enjoy a few drinks for Jason. If the rain is awful and no one shows for hockey, the birthday drinking shall go on as planned. So who's in? Goalies?

Someone grabbed my right handed stick this past saturday. Is black and green, and in crappy condition, but it's my only backup. I won't be there Sept 17th, but hopefully the 24th, so maybe we can connect then. Thanks.

We've done this trip a few times now, and it's been so successful, people we nagging me every week about when we'd do it again. Well, the time is now. Saturday, Aug 27th, we're moving the game to Bainbridge Island to… Continue

Well, now that summer is (kinda) in full swing and the roller hockey leagues are done, the roller hockey rink on Bainbridge Island is available and ready for Seattle Street Hockey. We had a HUGE turnout last time, so let's see if we can do it… Continue

There has a lot of discussion about having another game in Bainbridge in anticipation for the upcoming Vegas tournament. SSH has 28 players going to Vegas, and a practice on a (near) full sized rink with boards will definitely help our the crew. Adjusting to the sheer size of the rink and line changes have been areas in need of improvement in past years.
Let's get a head count and some commitment from goalies. I'll put up more details next week, but plan on being at the… Continue

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WGRZ) -- You've heard a lot about why Team Russia had to spend an extra night in Western New York following their gold medal win against Canada Wednesday night.
But a softer side of the team came out Thursday night at the Eastern Hills Mall in Clarence. Channel 2 viewer Any Surowiec sent us video from her son's 13th birthday party at the mall. Her family was… Continue

Hey, someone swiped my black Northface baseball hat from hockey this week. I left it on top of the green tarp on the bench, and when we finished for the day it was gone. I think someone who left early may have grabbed it by mistake. Let me know if you have it. Thanks. -Steve

Here's the Parks Department final decision on mixed use tennis courts. Judkins park is actually a very nice tennis court, but again, it would be about 40-50' shorter than where we play now, plus it's in the south end, which I don't think too many people are interested in.

Warning: this may very well be a long and boring post. I'm just updating those individuals interested in goings on with the Parks Department and also posting everything I've learned lately from the Parks before I forget it and for future reference. First I'll summarize the trip, the explain what I learned about building a new hockey rink. Feel free to ignore this post if this isn't your thing...I shan't be offended.
That being said, on October 7th I tagged along with the… Continue

This past Thursday, Sept 23rd Joe, Eric, Katherine and I attended a Board of Commissioners meeting for the Parks and Recreation Department regarding change of use for underused tennis courts. The meeting was somewhat dominated by the dodgeball group that wants to use Cal Anderson Park (and ONLY Cal Anderson Park) on Capital Hill. The other half of the attendees were there to voice their concern over the lack of playing space for 'alternative' sports, such as bike… Continue

Well, by all accounts, the Bainbridge Island trip was a smashing success. Apart from the fact that I am too sore to walk today, we had a great day of hockey. The facility is top notch. Full size rink, great boards, smooth and flat surface. The weather was great, and we played a solid 4.5 hours of hockey. Open ice passing, break-aways, great goaltending...great day of hockey. Definitely work a repeat trip. Plus, we had a great dinner at… Continue
