an interessting note is that this year's roller hockey national team is completely made of Catalans, even the coach.

Until newspapers and why not, Television don't start showing some NHL hockey, this isn't going anywhere ahead, it's not terribly poor, it's nicely scheduled and programmed, and there's some interest, the ice rink Barça plays in fills totally on gamedays (around 200-300 seats, free entrance) but meh, just so few people have watched an NHL game on their lives.

It's too hard to get people interessted when all you see on TV are occasional fights or freaky incidents (see zednik).

we have a growing website and forum going on though, it lasts for around a year and a half and has over 100 registered users and around 40 actually active users and a trimestral magazine I write in. link
