Hockey Returns to the Star City

The Roanoke Times has this article today about the effort to resurrect what was once an extremely popular spectator sport in the region. The UHL's Roanoke Valley Vipers drop the puck on Oct. 21 replacing the ECHL's Roanoke Express team that folded after the 2003-2004 season.

I hope and believe that hockey can be successful again in Roanoke with the right strategy. However, I still believe that this team has started off on the wrong foot by adopting a generic mascot that has no natural tie to the region.
