I heard tell that there's a LOT of kidz playing hockey in Texas...

As for the Harlem experiment? I heard tell that a LOT of the donated equipment went missing. Then the replacement equippment disappeared , etc...No judgements , just stating what I heard...Maybe Harlem's not ready for hockey...Doubtless, they have FAR more pressing concerns, like the sorry state of their schools etc ...

Seems that the powers that be , stateside...care about as much for Harlem's kids ( see ' The Triumph of Lesra Martin ' for a Canuck connection ) as they did for New Orleans' kids, apres Katrina...

Small wonder Hockey ( which requires considerable infrastructure ) will NEVER grow lasting roots in America's inner cities...
