I'd just like to comment on the new story written by Dustin Roux about the experience of training at the US Olympic facility.
First, excellent article - we should never forget that there's always a greater cause for inline hockey, and sports in general.
Second, it couldn't have come from a better kid. Dustin and his brother Jason have officiated for me for over 2 years now and I'm glad to see they're doing well (although we should all send our best wishes to Jason as he recovers from a torn ACL).
Say what you will about AIHL, PIHA, AAU, USAHIL, or whatever - but the fact is that the Roux boys and their family have given a lot of time and hard work to improve the game and it's nice to see their contributions being noticed on a larger scale.
Dustin - now you gotta come home Feb 7-8 and play for Bridgeville in Madden's tournament
Jason - get that knee back in shape, bro.
