I'm not so sure of the North American hockey history in Israel. I guess it started with a bunch of Canadians funding the Canada Centre in Metulla (a great place to go on vacation.) But for now, I think it goes without saying that there would be no monthly (sometimes 2x a month) game without the vision of one Danny S.
And this past Thursday night, January 18th, was our most recent game. Luckily, I brought a camera and someone took these great pictures and videos (coming soon).
So without further due, to the right is a picture of the great ole' Canadian, Danny S., on the ice in Metulla. He's on the left wearing number 27. I'm between the pipes with my right leg extended as far as it can go without falling off.
I forgot exactly what happened here, but from my reaction, it seems he shot the puck. Too bad for him, though, but I got the best of him in this picture. That wouldn't be the case the whole night - I think he scored 2 or 3 times (and had several assists), including a beaute' for the game winner.
Now that we had a brief intro, here are some more pictures from the game. Enjoy... and come back to see the videos soon!
That's me following the action from the far end of the ice.
Here's another face-off picture.
Here's me leaning on the boards between periods.
After the game, we cool off by relaxing in the pool & jacuzzi. The Olympic size pool comes complete with this luge-style slide, which actually "shoots" out of the building.Did you enjoy reading this post? If so, take a moment to JBlog Me.
