Shinny Street Hockey Game (Sunday 1pm)
Come out and cheer on your local celebrities as they face off in one of our nation’s favorite games. Hmmm …but is it Shinny or Street hockey? That is the big question! Well after many debates and lots of research …it turns out… it’s just about WHERE you ask! There is a common ritual for choosing teams for this SPORT though – no matter what you call it; As players arrive they “throw” their hockey stick into a pile in the middle area between two nets. Once enough sticks are in the pile, “someone” – (in our case the” OWB “ aka Official whistle blower) – divides the pile into two smaller piles, Players then pick up their own sticks to determine which team they are on and voila…. The teams having been formed! Should be fun!
