A new season, a new look

Sunday Morning Road Hockey will begin its 14th season on October 5, with a two-week preseason schedule.

The extra week of preparation will help some of the aging veterans fully recover from off-season injuries, including Paul One, who suffered a devastating wrist injury shortly after last Spring's Stanley Stick Championship series. The league's most senior player, the Living Legend, is also still on the mend after a mid-summer collision with a car while preparing for the upcoming season riding his bike.

And the dawn of the new season is also the beginning of a bold new era for roadhockey.net, the league's official online newsletter.

While the look of the roadhockey.net will only change slightly, sophisticated new features will make the site truly interactive. Registered roadsters will be able to upload their own comments and insights about the games, and visitors will be able to write instant feedback. The current season will also feature a fully searchable archive.

"I want the site to become a real community for the roadsters and the fans," says Jay Suburb, roadhockey.net's longtime publisher, editor and programmer. And giving the roadsters access to write their own stories and commentaries about the games will free him up to work on more exciting additions.

"There's a bunch of roadsters who still haven't got cards," says Suburb.
