As we look around the world and see all the sports that take place each and every day. Sometimes we do not keep track of those which take place in our own backyards. Yes, we all do look at what is on the other side of the fence thinking it is more exciting.

Did you know that hocking has been around for a 100 years in Portland, Oregon? Well, it has. We want to thank the Historical Society for keeping track of this mark in history. Portland’s hockey started in 1914 as the Portland Rose Buds in the Pacific Coast Hockey Association. We also want to thank KGW-TV for supplying pictures and for spreading the word about this mark in history.

Today, we have a wonderful team in Portland that we are watching as they make their mark in 2014. They are called the Winter Hawks.

So, if you are a sports lover make sure you are looking in your backyard and praise all those athletes who pour their hart and soul into the sport that they love. They could go down in history someday… You never know.
