Media Interest Grows for Disabled Hockey

Despite the fact that the 6th Annual Hockey Disabled Festival has overlapped with an exciting final weekend for the NHL, media interest has been strong. Once they have arrived, most reporters and photographers have stayed for several hours to talk to players, coaches, parents, and volunteers and to watch as many games as they can. Many seem amazed by the level of play, the intensity of the games, and the inspiring attitude of the athletes. The Washington Post ran two photos on the front page of today's Metro section, and the festival also has attracted Comcast Sportsnet, Reuters, the Gazette, McClatchey News Service, and numerous photographers and bloggers.
