As we wind down here in Irvine, I am reflecting on a great tournament. We saw a lot of great action on Sunday, and it makes me excited for the rest of the tournaments we have down the stretch. There seems to be a pretty good buzz in the air about finals, and some of the new teams we saw are looking to make a mark in Florida.
Daryn hit on it earlier with his blog, Florida is going to be amazing. Just being a part of the finals last year gave me a true sense of how a tournament should be run. I am not going to knock other tournaments, but I have been a part of a lot of hockey, and I have not seen the same thing we provide, anywhere else. I hope the teams that expressed interest continue to look ahead to Florida, and for the teams that are thinking of skipping the event this year, I hope they reconsider and join us in Estero.
It is clean up time now, and I am going to get going. Look back here in the next day or so for the Irvine recap. Until we meet again, good luck and have fun!
