    Reed, even though the 30 anniversary for the Miracle on Ice was two days ago, I decided to take a look back at arguably the greatest sporting event in American history.

    Please take a look at it and tell me what you think of it.

    If you could also pass this on, that would be greatly appreciated

    Hi Reed, I was intrigued to read your Bio and discover your roots in Orange County with Capo, the IHF high school league and Chapman University roller hockey clubs. As the current president of the IHF (, I would be interested in learning more about your experiences and lasting influences. You'll be pleased to know that the Capo Valley HS team is alive and well and that the IHF League is now up to over 30 high schools and 56 teams playing organized scholastic inline hockey. Maybe you'll (uh hum) crossover every once in a while and give a mention about the importance of inline's Concrete Pond and its contributions to the big Frozen Pond of southern California's Ice Hockey programs. Remember, even Luc Robitaille played roller on the beach at Santa Monica :) Good luck and keep on keepin' on. I enjoy reading your articles!

    Hey I wrote an article on the current state of NHL writers on Bleacher Report and I think it's an important read to members of the community. Take a look when you get a chance. Thanks.
