OPERA for Idiots
The 90s saw the introduction to roller hockey. Several guys who worked in my graphics department played, and as an old ice hockey guy,I thought it was pretty strange.
We began a roller hockey magazine that
covered Roller Hockey International (RHI) and watching them lose 40 million dollars, I thought there must be a better way to run a league
— and so, MLRH was born.
First year was great! $6,000 per week salary cap (about $15,000 in today's dollars). The winning team got $75,000 prize ($150,000 today). We finished with 10,000 fans for our championship game.
I thought I was king of the roller hockey worldbut the next season. RHI came back, crashed and burned with millions in debt and brought MLRH down with them. Ugh!
That, boys and girls, was the
end of real "pro" roller hockey.
Bill was listening to a lot of
blues—he could relate!
( I could be the biggest idiot. Just cannot relate.)
