After a festive family (including few day old Keagan Scanlon) and friend sendoff at Grammy's and Grampy's House, the adventure continued. For four days, the Czech Republic was the site of the best youth ball hockey in the world. From 28 June to 1 July, boys' and girls' national teams from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Canada, the USA, Great Britain, Poland and Switzerland competed in Přerov and Zlín. Our Joe, #43, served on the US Blue team. He was accompanied by his father, Bryan, and his grandfather, Barry. Great to have games televised by YouTube. We were all so proud of him, the games he played, and how he represented the USA.... Go Joe!
