Are you ready for the Winter Paralympics?

by Jason Miller

We are so close to the Winter Paralympics that I can taste it.  The Winter Paralympics will feature many winter sports for the disabled.  One that I want to focus on is Sled or Sledge Hockey.  Sled hockey is hockey that is played on a device that has a seat with two bars that extend to a cage to protect the feet, if you have any.  Under the seat, are two skates that the hockey players glide on, on the ice.  They use two sawed off hockey sticks with small picks to propel themselves on the ice.  You will hear more about this from one of the All Time bests in the sport, Manny Guerra Jr AKA Junior.  Make sure you look for part two coming shortly.
