LUKEWARM SPRINGS – The already short window for slush hockey season has been truncated by unexpectedly pleasant weather.
Players who depend on the unstable conditions between winter and summer were disappointed with this year’s rapid thaw.
“Ideally, we’d have a few weeks of overcast and wind, at least enough to keep the slush on the ground,” said Joe Sebleton, captain of the Lukewarm Springs Mush. “We’d get through a tournament of nine teams, with a beer tasting after each game.”
Sebleton concedes that the league will have to make do with the beer tastings alone until Lawn Mower Derby Days in May.
