How was your Thanksgiving?  We spare no details about ours.  (Alas, poor Trucko.)  Have you ever had the itch to do some sportscasting?  Maybe you can.  Plus, it's time to head to the ballot box and do your civic duty.  Kevin Conroy is counting on you.

Gobble up some more Gritty.  That guy is tutu much.

Happy ThanksGritting!  We've cooked up a special treat for our annual turkey day scrimmage.  How does THIS YEAR IN GRITTY strike you?  A recap of the orange goon's 2019 highlights and lowlights, plus his exploits over the last six weeks.  Stuff those earbuds in your sound holes and get comfortable.  It's quite a ride.

We're not dead!  Again!  After a lengthy unplanned hiatus, we're back on the horse to tell you about the extensive roster of professional hockey players that started out in the OBHA.  Play dek, git gud, apparently.  Plus, don't fill up on turkey, because there are a plurality of exciting tournaments Thanksgiving weekend.

Yee haw!  (Was it always this hard?)

We are silly.  Whether that's a pro or a con, you should know that this episode starts near 100 and mostly stays there.  You may think that a charity that helps the homeless via hockey and a rink-building initiative can't be all that entertaining.  Hold my Mountain Dew.

Never forget that orange is the new AAAAAGH!

On the heels of an exciting Tape DEK pemiere, we're back with the girl that brung us.  Not only are we shining our spotlight on a Hall of Fame rreferee and a northern factory for World Championship youth, but we've got the scoop on a sweet introduction between two titans, brokered by yours truly.

It's that time of year when anything can happen.  It's Gritty season.

This week, we have a big announcement about the future of HIT the DEK.  But we're making you wait for it.  First, the USA's best are teaching the USA's most valiant about the benefits of a little orange ball.  And we propose to discuss the biggest possible win out on a rink in Nassau.  Plus that big announcement thing.  That one's kind of important.

Happy Batman Day.

On Saturday, September 7, 2019, James and Gary took a little trip out to Massapequa, NY to cover the Grand (Re-)Opening of the Lou Anthony Sports Complex.  From the scorer's box, we had a prime spot on the glass to record a live(ish)-to-tape special edition all about the brand new rink crafted by DEK Superstars and the EMPowerplay Project.  Special thanks to Craig Stanton for his time, and Seb Giarratano for everything else.

To celebrate our Sesquicentennial, we sit down with Kelly K, head of the EMPowerplay Project.  Ever wonder where new dek rinks come from?  When a man and a sponsor love ball hockey very much...  Do you think they'll let us cut the ribbon?

This week HIT the DEK is for the children.

The draw this week is discussions about comic book movies, comic book TV, and comic book... helmets?  Just stick with us on this one.  We also cover a beer league tourney benefiting kids, and a follow-up with a happy ending.  Oh, and Gritty is armed now.

Another week, another HtD.  This week we're ordering some Chinese.  Specifically, a couple of stories about introducing the game of hockey to China with little orange balls.  Plus, a company in Massachusetts is teaching folks how to get a new rink built.  Or something.  And Gary really likes Mike O'Malley, apparently.

Do ya have it?
