Well boys and girls, just two more sleeps until the big man arrives.

On my to do list was this post. I wanted to take the time to wish all of you the best of the season, whatever that means to you.

For me table hockey has always had a clear tie into Christmas. How many of us got that first game Christmas morning? Glad tidings indeed.

Christmas morning I am going to give me nephews a game. A used beat up old game, but a game none the less. The tradition continues. From Don Munro to today, still the best Christmas prestent ever!

So thanks again for last year, I did not play as much as I would like to have, but the games I did get to play were, each in their own way A GIFT.

For those who don't know I copied a brief blurb here ...

The earliest type of these mechanical hockey games was built by Donald H. Munro, Sr. in his Toronto home in 1932-33. Made of wood and scrap metal found in his neighborhood, Munro built his first game as a Christmas present for his children at a time when he could not afford to buy gifts.

And a Merry Christmas to you too John. We here at the Central Pennsylvania Hockey League www.cpthl.org wish every one of YOU, in all other leagues a Merry Christmas also!

Over the years, people have often discribed their favorite Christmas (usually waiting for that illustrious table hockey game) morning when just a young man - mine, when I was 12 and "just knowing" I was going to receive a table hockey game; but not knowing I was going to receive the Cadillac of all models, the 1972 Coleco Trophy Model Not Worthy

Here's to all those memories, all these years playing table hockey since for the little boy in us has remained ... thank God! MERRY CHRISTMAS! Smile
