To start, the skaters donned theatrical outfits that were a show of their own. Crinoline layered white skirts, silver halos, glitter painted arms, face stickers, wings of all colors and some of the cutest little boy shorts I've seen.
To add to the theatrics, a barber shop quartet, The Four Old Parts, sang the national anthem. A nice change from the traditional "one singer behind the mic performance". It was a fun bout for a good cause (portion of proceeds benefited Habitat For Humanity Of Morristown) and it was the best kind of action because the scores were so close for pretty much the entire two periods. In the end, the Angels were triumphant with a 3 point lead over the Cupids! GO ANGELS!! Each skater played well and if everyone had 1/2 as much fun as I did, which I'm pretty sure was the case, the bout was a success.
Madams, thank you so much for having us for this fantastic event. We look forward to seeing you next week for the big scrimmage!
