Reuben, there are just a couple of things wrong with your delusion. Ice only comes in cubes in Puerto Rico therefore to small to play the great game on. Secondly if your referee were to try to referee a game of hockey on a proper sized sheet of ice dressed as your fantasy ref is dressed, she would just end up being a solid mass of goosebumps south of the Fourty-ninth so to speak. I must say though that your fantasy is a better one than spry's, he has the fantasy idea that the Boston Bruins will win the Stanley Cup this year.

Bring it punk.

We'll play some good old fashioned shinny... outside...in the dead of winter.

Nothing says hockey like being checked into a frozen snowbank and we'll play until we run out of pucks.

This is coming from the guy who wanted help finding a heater when the temps were in the 60's? Who are you giving with that cosmic debris?

My hockey money's on the dude with the Y at the front of his airport code (or CY if you're into 4-letter codes) over the dude who needs a heater when it's 60 out.

Never said I wanted Boston to win,just wanted the cup to remain in "Merica".Get the snow out of your ears.
If Lou,Lou,Lou has to choke in goal,so be it.

Yeah. I'll bet the Canadians could even whip the Puerto Ricans at Field Hockey.

I like that hockeypuertorico.com is a dummy site.

You are doing it wrong... it's .org

http://hockeypuertorico.org/

.com stands for commercial sites. Places made to make money. This hockey mission is not to make money. Is just to beat the Canucks now that everybody else is doing it. ergo, it's a .org site.

Oops... but it still is not uncommon for a group to buy up more the same name in more than one domain in order to prevent someone else from capitalizing on people's mistakes... like mine.

Sixty-fiver, you should invite Ruben up to Edmondchuck this winter when it's a nice balmy -10, he wouldn't move from the top of the stove.

The Rubster is telling the truth,they have ice in San Juan.
Find out the hourly rate and we'll suit up Rube for an adult beer league game.
That would be a tropical vacation

The USA taking over Canada is old news. the USA set up a branch plant economy in Canada in the 19th century. We're also highly dependent on trade with the USA to keep our economy going. And, we rely on America's stronger military to defend us against foreign attack.

At least let Canada beat the USA at hockey.

If you're refering to the last olympic game ,the Vancouver refs are not"honest".
Now go sit on the davenport with Doug and Bob,watch the Canuckers loose Canadas game.

It seems Vancouver is performing harakiri right now...

Maybe I should have left the Canucks alone.

Rube,
How about a RubenTalks(TM) commentary on the final game yesterday.
Glad you have some interest in the sport.
