My son's team won the 18 and under National Hockey Championship this weekend.

It was a round robin tournament that started last Wed.... They ended the round robin with a 3 and 1 record.

They beat a team from St Louis yesterday morning in the quarter finals and a team from Boston last night in the semi's...They won both of those games by only one goal... 2-1 and 3-2..

They came out for the championship game this morning and dominated the New York team and won 7-1.....

yeah, I'm a proud papa:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I'll bet there's some real bad juju going on with the teams from Boston and NY. "How could we get beat by a team from, from ....TEXAS!?!?!?"

Good on your kid and the team.

It helped a bit when the North Stars moved to Dallas in the 90's.

Dave: big props to you and Jr! You gotta have pics, yes?

Helped big time - as well as the snowbirds who have moved south.

In the '70s, our lowly high school team from Philly beat an club team from Wilmington, MA. They were not happy.

Just about every kid on our team was born up north...Our coach is from Russia...Being from Texas helps...they tend to overlook us...

That's awesome, Dave. All those weekend mornings getting up at 5:00 AM really paid off.

Thanks.....The North Stars moving here made all the difference...We have more sheets of ice than most northern cities outside of Canada..

The metroplex has 20 sheets of ice with 2 more opening next year. In this land of football, hockey is extremely popular

DH... is that a faux hawk? How could you allow such hair to proliferate in your household.
