Puerto Rican Ice Hockey Playoffs?

Anyone hear who won the Juan Valdez sportsmanship award this year?



*Bait to hear from you-know-who before I leave for the holiday weekend.

According to the Hockey Puerto Rico website, they got banned from playing in the only ice rink on the island. But now hockeypuertorico.org isn't even loading.

Perhaps. Where, then, is the movie? Starring Ruben, a Hyundai, and a giant yuca root, of course.

I like history so while in Jamaica this spring I tried to track down the American coach and buy the dude a beer.The locals I spoke to seem to feel he was dead.Will continue my quest next visit.

Found their pratice hill near the bauxite mine on the east side of the island.
Tried to plant the seed of ice hockey and they seemed interested.They do like road bike racing and have regular events.

Shame,you're getting way off topic.This is not a cultural discussion.They use toothpicks after dining like everyone else.
