The 67 pct Blues
They came from a distant land, somewhere on the other side of Brooklyn. With names like Buell, Randazzo, Arnold, Cunningham, McMorrow and McNiel, they were probably more like us than we realized. Yet the 67th Pct. Blues were the "outsiders" when it came to Avenue F. And whenever we played them it was always guaranteed to be an event. Fights, breakaways, cursing, and of course their "fans" standing on the bench giving us a hard time.
Back in 2005 we had a reunion game at Avenue F, and many of the original Blues showed up. Afterwards there were drinks at the Gallery and talk about the old days. No, there were no fights or cursing, just talk about roller hockey and the game we all loved so much.
Hey, if any of you guys are out there, I'll be getting the court at Avenue F starting on Sunday October 4th form 9-12. We plan on having some pick-up games every other Sunday till late December. And I hope you boys can make it.
Thanks for the memories,
