Passing, Saving, Penalties in Hockey
February 02, 2008 07:50 AM PST

Watch this video clip and remember, if you want to score more goals you'll have to pass more.

For the goalies, if you want less goals you'll have to cover-up the puck more often. If you can't cover-up then tell your defense to send the puck to the boards and out of harms way.

Finally, you'll see an Interference/Holding penalty which happens often in non-contact hockey. Defense your much better off playing the puck than intefering with the forward.

Thanks to the DDO Peewee BB Pirates for being in this clip.

Émile “Butch” Bouchard and Gordie Howe Team Up
November 24, 2007 06:43 AM PST

Montreal – (Press Release) The organizing committee of the Remember The Passion (tm) NHL Alumni Game and Gala, along with the Alzheimer society of Montreal and the NHL Alumni, are proud to announce that Mr. Emile ”Butch” Bouchard has agreed to act as Honorary Chairman of the 2nd Annual Remember The Passion tm NHL Alumni Game and Gala. Once again, the passionately contested game between The Montreal Canadiens Alumni and the NHL Alumni will be held at the Dollard des Ormeaux Civic Center on Saturday, February 16, 2008 at 2:00pm, followed by an evening of dinner and entertainment hosted by Hall of Fame broadcaster, Dick Irvin.

Mr. Gordie Howe, famously known as Mr. Hockey (tm), will be behind the bench of the NHL Alumni team and will be attending the Gala evening as well. Facing him behind the bench of The Montreal Canadiens Alumni will be Stanley Cup winner Réjean Houle, Ambassador of the Club de Hockey Canadiens, who has been a strong supporter of this event from its inception.

This exciting event helps raise funds for the Alzheimer Society of Montreal, whose mission is to alleviate the personal and social consequences of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, as well as promote the search for a cause and cure. Funds will also be shared with the NHL Alumni’s “Hockey’s Greatest Family Fund”, a fund that helps former NHL players in need and in their transition to life after hockey.

As Rick Muscant, Co-founder and Co-chairman of this event explains, “We are so honoured and thrilled to gain the support of Émile “Butch” Bouchard and Gordie Howe! Last year’s game and gala surpassed all our expectations, and we’re very excited about the event’s potential to raise awareness and money for two exceptional causes.”

Last year’s game and gala raised over $80,000 – an impressive sum for a first-time fundraiser organized by a committee of volunteers from the West Island of Montreal. This eclectic mix of busy entrepreneurs, parents, and hockey fans, hope to exceed this amount, as well as host an event which pays tribute to an unforgettable era in Canadian hockey history, and to the people who, because of Alzheimer’s disease, have had their most cherished memories stolen.

Members of the organizing committee for Remember The Passion TM, invite potential sponsors, as well as those interested in knowing more about the event, to contact Melissa Bellerose at the

Alzheimer Society of Montreal, (514) 369-0800.

OK, It's soccer news, but anyone who knows me, knows I'm not a soccer dad.

Now that being said, you can't help but be impressed by the International
Cup 2007 being held right here in Dollard.

With the host country being China it is expected that Dragon Dances and
more will take place right across from the Arena Friday night during the
opening ceremony, which starts at 7pm.

And All this to raise money for the 2 Children's hospitals here in Montreal.

I hope you get time to watch, and Congrats to Sam Gabay and all the soccer volunteers.


Hitting Tips for Baseball
May 21, 2007 07:10 AM PDT

Here's a Bonus Tip for coming to the website. I always let the first strike go by, I very rarely swing before one strike goes by. That motivates me and allows me to see the pitchers speed. Now I used to hit second, so I was hoping to move the first hitter over one base all the time. Create the dicipline to take strikes, and the pitcher has to throw three of them, you'll get many balls, and even walks before you'll get 3 strikes (Talk to your coach about this first). Hitting for Hitters seems to be out of stock, but follow these links and look for other similar DVDs for Baseball. Yes, I will lend out my copy (since the used copies are selling for $100 I didn't even put the link here). Search Here for Hitters Search Here for Pitchers Now remember I talked about Ted Williams, Here is his book. And Hank Aaron.
