The Wall Street Journal has done a story on table hockey. I did a couple of interviews with the reporter last month and last week, and he attended the big Toronto event before Easter.

To the untrained and uninformed it's a nice piece.


BUT

it is chalk full of inaccuracies

Both Mark and I co-hosted the tournament....

Also, we all know that I've won it 2 yrs in a row......

I spent a half hour on the phone with the guy straightening out his story only to be hung up on.....

And he is supposed to be a professional?

Pretty pathetic.

I'm very disappointed in the piece.....
Next time, I'll definitely choose wisely who I share my info with....

Dave,

It was a nice article and promoted table hockey and the Toronto event nicely. Plus the WSJ is read how far and wide??? Can only be a good thing.

Or are you just dissappointed that you didn't get a line pic of yourself in it like....
