Would you like an ice rink in Lisbon?

on 11:39 am

If so, you're not alone and now there's something you can do about it.

In Portugal, Montreal-born Mauricio Xavier is Mr. Hockey. He was on the Portuguese National Ice Hockey team that played two games against the First Portuguese club in Viseu in June of 2000, the only Portuguese national ice hockey team ever assembled, he does colour commentating for NHL games on Sportv, and he is also an active member of the Portuguese Ice Sports Federation (www.fp-dg.com/).

The jersey worn by Pedro Regado, the first Portuguese player to score a goal wearing the Portuguese colours, now hangs in the NHL Hall-of-Fame in Toronto

Now here in Portugal, during a 10 year stint (1996-2006), the only place one could hold an official ice hockey game or a figure skating event was at Palácio do Gelo in Viseu. With the closing of this facility in 06, however, any Winter sport requiring an ice surface has pretty much been left out in the cold.

Presently, Mauricio is trying to change that. Along with the folks at the Portuguese Ice Sport Federation, he is heading up a campaign to get an official ice surface built in Lisbon. They are not asking for Maple Leaf Gardens to be built in the heart of Lisbon. What is being asked for is the construction of an official ice rink where ice hockey, figure skating even curling can be played by people of all ages at different levels.

So if you'd like to get behind this cause or just simply show your support, you can start here:


Once we get this rink up, if you're the holder of a zamboni drivers license, they'll be hiring ...

I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content

so people could connect with it better. Youve
got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or
two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
