Hey guys,,, I'm currently 43 and I Was born and raised in Astoria.  I been reading ur thread on roller hockey and am puzzled as to why hockey is so dead in Astoria now. I currently live in long island but a little info for u guys. When I was growing up in astoria hockey was huge,, don't know if u guys know or heard of,, but I played for MPB (most precious blood) back in the day,, I started at the age of 4, and have not stopped playing since, all hoyt avenue park which u guys are talking about was referred to as the Cheesebox back in the day, simply due to it's triangular shape, I played so much hockey there growing up as a child.  We must bring hockey back to Astoria the way it was,,,Guys Whitestone rink is horrible,, surface is destroyed best to play there with a ball,,, puck rolls like crazy,,, and ohhh yes thanos27 your not lying when there used to be line changes,, hockey was nuts in Astoria, bring it back boys,,, I'm gonna come through on a Sunday sometime,,, hope to see u guys there

Anthony im  a couple of years younger than you but i also grew up in Astoria and always played at the cheesebox since i was small . I know everyone who played there  and i also played for the Astoria Sharks (YMCA league team) .      Other than the cheesebox , we also played at hoyt ave  under the train by neptune diner .  We had so many great games and the people coming down there seemed like endless numbers . Then people got married , had kids and for some reason the younger generation never got into hockey the same way . Is it cuz the demographics changed so much >>?   I know it was more Greek and Italian back then but still .....       Anthony where do you play now ?  Where in LI do you live cuz i also played ice in Manhasset  in IceLand for a while  .   Its tougher now with kids , but me and my friends are trying to get back into it .
