Greetings from Thunderbird Arena

I went to UBC watch the US vs Canada sledge hockey game. Sledge hockey is a Paralympic sport, and overall it is very exciting to watch! Even if the US loses. And you lose your bet. DOH!

Funny enough, I actually know more players on the Canadian team than the US team since I had the chance to watch a screening of Sledhead, a documentary about the Canadian sledge hockey team's quest for the 2008 World Championships in Boston. Very good movie.

The US Team po-wows

The rink was specially fitted out with plexi-glass at rink level so players on the bench could see all the action. It is also the first time the ice was continued out to also cover the bench area, allowing easy on-off for players.

some of the action

I could just barely touch both sides...they had a goal area set up to try out the sport, but we didn't visit this area until the game was over and everything was shut down
