Playing Hockey – DD51

 

Dom Does Hockey –
http://www.domdumais.com/DomDumaisDoesHockey

In this episode, Dom talked more about why he stopped playing hockey back in 1989. Next he talked about going to watch the Bangkok Ice Hockey League (BIHL) games and how that led to him being contacted by the Siam Hockey League (SHL) about being their official podcaster. After that he talked about how watching the SHL and getting to know the players re-inspired him about playing hockey and how hockey was meant to be fun. He talked about how Lance Parker and the Flying Farangs helped him get some gear, and when he went to the States and got some hockey gear so he could play hockey when he got back to Thailand. Then he talked about how he felt when he was getting ready to play his first game in almost 30 years, but how that all went away once he just started playing. This episode finishes off with Tracy saying a few words about Dom ice skating and playing hockey again and then a video minutes before his first game in almost 30 years.

Dom has John “Silky Mitts” Schachnovsky for Sport Corner – Titanium on the show this week. They talk about where John’s from, and his journey through the world and eventually ending up here in Bangkok, Thailand.

They also talk about his time in the Thai World Hockey League (TWHL) all the way through to it’s demise, and what prompted him and the other members of the Siam Hockey League (SHL) committee to start of the SHL, and his time in the Bangkok Ice Hockey League (BIHL).

Lastly, they started talking a little bit about the behind the scenes of the SHL. At least until they lost power in the studio due to a transformer blowing, and ending the podcast.

John wants to be on the show again, so we can finish the discussion we were having and also, to talk about other things, so stay tuned for that.

Meeting BIHL Players – DDV10

 

In about the last week of August, I was contacted by a member of the BIHL team Thunder, John. He told me that he heard my podcast and would like to get together and talk about some things that were coming up. We arranged to meet at The Rink in Central Rama 9. He also introduced me to another member of the Thunder team named Christian. We chatted about hockey here in Thailand, and about the possibility of working together on a project (SHL) in the near future.

Keep an eye out and we will see what will happen.
