    I know real estate cost is one reason there are 3 hockey superstores in OC, but I got to wondering if there were more rinks down there than elsewhere, so just for ****s and giggles, I went to Google-Maps and typed in "Ice Rinks 90277" to see what would happen, and .... ta-da .... they actually show a map with lots of the known rinks taged with little red balloons.

    Now, they are missing some, like Ice Station Valencia didn't show up (but a rink down in Escondido did?), but I was pretty impressed that it worked to any degree.

    If anybody wants to bug Google into mapping all our local rinks, here's my list of who's who in LA ice ....

    Okay, I went down there today since I was in the area running some errands and the place is pretty big. It is the old car dealership on Katella across the street from the Costco in Cypress/Los Al area. They are pretty cool guys who run the place, and have a good selection of stuff right now, and they are still bringing stuff in. They have had their eye on this spot for a few years, and have had to jump through hoops and had a lot of battles to get the business permit and spot. They will eventually start making their own line of hockey equipment and the sticks should be coming in next week. So from what I picked up, tape and some socks, they are pretty cool, plus they gave y son sample rolls of tape which he went home to tape his stick up with. (His blade is now taped in orange, flames, and team Canada tape) Give the place a shot and check it out.

    I was impressed and tempted to start buying gear to look at playing again.

    Good looking place. When I went with the Monkey, it was the second day they were open, so I'm exicted to see what it becomes. Definitely has a lot of potental and they did have some good prices. Worth a look.

    Andres, they have a slew of wood sticks. I know they have the ABS ones for roller, as well as a bunch of Sherwood and Bauer ones for ice.

    They're gonna have a lot of stuff out. Sidewalk sale. Don, the manager was telling us there should be good stuff.

    Their prices are a tad bit lower than Hockey Giant on a quite a few items.
