It's our longest episode ever!  This week we have a lot of ground to cover.  Things start out a bit somber with our remembrances of two people that left large holes where they once stood.  Fortunately Glenn Cunningham is back to lift our spirits with tales of LaGrange Street Hockey and the Columbus River Dragons.  Plus, he tells us how to get rid of that hockey stink with a little work in the defensive 'zone.

We love the :90s

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!
