Re: New York Times Article on Inline Hockey
I agree, I have always liked this idea. PBH had a good idea playing outdoors but i believe sticking to the accepted rules and format of Inline Hockey (with checking of course) is the best way to go to avoid being gimmicky. Also as you said playing in the summer allows you to get the best players since all of the other inline and ice leagues are in the off season and during the summer time people tend to enjoy being outdoors more. Give the games a festival atmosphere, live music, beer garden and put up temporary rinks and seats for 1,000-2,000 spectators in locations like beaches, downtowns or popular areas for night life and entertainment and i bet you will get a lot of interest and walk up crowds.
