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.

breezersshoulderpadsIn episode 17 and episode 21 Dom talked a little bit about skating and playing hockey.  In this episode, Dom talks about his time playing hockey at different levels from four (4) years old to eighteen (18) years old.  He also talks about some of the different equipment he used while playing hockey, like breezers and shoulder pads and some of the teams he played on.

 

Dom also talks about watching the Minnesota North Stars, how he felt when they were moved to Dallas and became the Dallas Stars, following the New York Rangers and how excited he was when NHL hockey went back to Minnesota with the Minnesota Wild.

 

Although Dom no longer plays hockey, he is still a big fan, and loves watching the Minnesota Wild play hockey, which wasn’t easy in Bangkok, until he got the NHL package through NHL.com, and now he watches whenever he wants.

Dom also had some good matches as a singles wrestler against Mr. X, The Invader (Terry Block), Dr. Destruction (Chad), just to name a few.  Dom’s character of Mr. Destroyer was really coming together until he ended up having to move to Wisconsin.

 

During this time, Dom also wrestled as Rattle Snake Jake and won tag time titles with Dixie Dave in Anoka, but lost them later in Brooklyn Park.
