from the McKight Journal,
Some local hockey fans were holding their breath because of the unstable situation of the Pittsburgh Penguins, while others were doing so to get a hearty workout.
Every Tuesday night, some extreme hockey fans gather at the Pine-Richland pool to partake in a friendly, yet exhilarating game of underwater hockey.
The premise of the game is much like its on ice counterpart. Teams of three to six players try to hit a puck made of brass and teflon across the bottom of the deep end (12 feet) of the pool into one of the two of the 1.5 foot goals on either end of the deep part. The goals are made of weighted angle iron, but sometimes get jostled around during the action according to long-time player Deb Rammage.
