WGRD Pond Hockey Classic — Day 2 Photos and Video

The second day of the GRD Pond Hockey Classic started off a bit warmer than Day 1, and much warmer than last year!

This was both good news and bad news for the event.

Good news: A lot of people came out and took advantage of the great weather to hang out and party with GRD for the day of hockey.

Bad news because, well, that much warmth isn't really the best thing for ice.

WGRD Pond Hockey Classic Put Off Ice for Rest of Weekend Because of Conditions

The WGRD Pond Hockey Classic 2015 is done for the weekend and its remaining games will be rescheduled because of tenuous ice conditions at Richmond Park.

As of 9 p.m. EST Saturday, it was determined by tournament officials the ice at the Grand Rapids park was no longer in playable condition and Sunday's schedule has been canceled, said Angela Paasche, the tourney's director and Townsquare Media Grand Rapids live events manager.

Forty-five teams had played games Friday and Saturday in the WGRD Pond Hockey Classic, presented by Labatt Blue and Dematic. Most of Saturday's games had been completed.

Plans are to announce rescheduling of the remainder of the tournament early next week, Paasche said.

WGRD Pond Hockey Classic – Day 1 Photos and Video

The GRD Pond Hockey Classic kicked off last night at Richmond Park in Grand Rapids at about 5:45, with the opening ceremonies, hosted by Hot Wings, Producer Steve, and Producer Joe from the Free Beer and Hot Wings show. Some of our staff even sang the National Anthem to help kick off the weekend of hockey action!

The games got underway on the ice that looked amazing, and we blasted through five hours of pond hockey before anyone even noticed it!

Get Ready for This Weekend’s GRD Pond Hockey Classic with Video from Last Year

I'm really excited for this year's Pond Hockey Classic, kicking off tonight at 5:45 at Richmond Hills Park. We have 4 rounds of hockey throughout the weekend, one tonight, two tomorrow, and the fourth on Sunday.

Throwback Thursday: National Anthem Singer-Skater Wipes Out On Ice Before Hockey Game [Video]

Ah, throwback Thursday. Let's travel back in time to this past fall... when a guy fell.

While ice skating and singing the national anthem.

A lesson to us all, really, about why you don't try to do both of those things at once.

Alpena Hockey Player Has a Rough Time Leaving the Ice [Video]

Mitchell Skiba plays for the Alpena Flyers in Alpena, Mich., and he managed the best/worst exit ever after getting ejected from a game over the weekend.

Skiba had just been given a penalty, and was skating off the ice angrily, when he decided to slam his stick into the wall as he skated off the ice. Bad idea, it turns out.
