Convicted Hockey Dad Killer to get only 3- 5 years?
i know he only threw a few punches, but he was 275 lbs and his victim was 165 lbs. I'm sorry, but killing a guy nearly half your size in front of children - in front of both of their children even - is reason enough for throwing the book at this thug. 20 years = 10 years if he stays cool in the pokie - a pittance if you're the victims kids. Hopefully the Mass judge will make an example out of this totally unneccessary tragedy.

Black Top Street Hockey ... it's ON!
A new trend for urban sports, Black Top Street Hockey requires "...very little skill, but a lot of pent up aggression and hatred." Well, not really, but the Voice
thinks it's kewl
and among the best leisure sites of 2001. Reminisce
about your own experiences, get some phat accessories
, and you'll be all set. If you're still looking for Xmas
gifts, you might be too late, but you can read
about the hockey experience.

Powerpoint invades the NFL:
"The way they do it with the PowerPoint, it livens up meetings and makes them more interesting". Imagine the sideline hijinks when all the plays disappear because of SirCam! What kind of coach would Vince Lombardi be if he had a setup like this
? I still miss the glow puck
from hockey, but I could do without the "virtual billboards"
all over the darn field. Should computers and sport mix?
