Last year, the MLRH Cup went to Europe and we are determined to bring it back to the states. With our new $500 fee, any team can afford to play MLRH and they may help us win back the Cup from Europe.

MLRH World League to be franchised
This is where Bill comes out of the closet. A few of you are aware
of what I have been quietly pursuing this past year but now, as we
approach a new MLRH season, I need to tell you that I am involved with producing a major motion picture.
Obviously a 15-million dollar film requires some serious attention. But I do have a plan for MLRH. Basically, it involves regional franchises that allows those who organize the events to be rewarded for their efforts.
Oh yeah, it is going to be one hell of a film—and yes, it is about hockey. I first learned of this incredible story many years ago in the Czech Republic. This new look site is about MLRH, Bill and
CrossCzech—the most amazing story you (and most of the hockey world) know nothing about. Read on my friends...
you should make it!

Join him for a bit of musical history (and Bill's).
Scroll down on this page page, you will see a glimpse of Bill's life. It's hell being old but it was so cool being around for all of the great (and not so real) music of the past 60 years Click on any
of the "decade buttons and have a listen. And
yes, there are a few quirky choices (the Too Fat Polka). Incredibly, it got huge airplay and nobody though it was offensive. A long ago era. Yikes!

hard labor by Communist authorities, in his brief career, Modry, an architect and engineer, is the

In 1972, the Chicago Blackhawks offered him one million dollars (7 million today) but the communists would not let him travel.
His quickness and athleticism earned him the nickname—ˇThe Acrobat."
Jiri Holochek...Best goalie ever?
Some pick the Russian Vladislav Tretiak but, head to head, Holichek never lost to him. In their 1976 3-1 upset of the Soviet in the Canada Cup, Trietiak stopped 11 of 14 shots, Holochek 40 of 41.

You have never heard of Gustav Bubnik shown as the baby faced whiz kid who scored the winning goal in the 1949 World Championships. I get Gordy Howe and I loved him from when I was a kid—but he never came back to play after five years in a
Soviet slave labor camp.

Another historic player you don't know but you may remember his son. Bobby Holik enjoyed a long career with the NJ Devils and finished up with the NY Rangers. His Father was a passionate anti-soviet agitator who scored the game winner in the 1972
