Although Portland is known for short, mild Winters, it’s not known for the Winter Hawks. From injuries to sheer guts, the Winter Hawks have taken Portland to a new level of low… below Seattle. This site, like the Winter Hawks, is an effort to show you how fun a sucky city can be.
To give you an example of the Winter Hawks magical ability to suck, in 2007-08 season they dropped 20 games in a row. After losing so many major junior Western Hockey League playoff games in years past, they decided to skip out on the playoffs all together in the ’06-’07 season. Sucking soo hard, finally took it’s toll.
In the beginning, the Winter Hawks were looked upon as a pioneers in the budding Junior Hockey League. They were the first American team to move from Canada not to mention the inventors of “Dash for Cash”*. Now they are discovering new ways to reach the largest GA to GF ratio in JHL history.
As much as they suck, it’s still loads of fun to watch 16-19 year old kids playing the game at it’s purest form. By that, I mean it’s fun to get piss drunk and watch them kick the s**t out of each other.
*”Dash for Cash” Premise: A ridiculous amount of white people are assembled on opposite sides of the ice. They run into the middle for a chance to grab as many $1 coins as they can. Generally, the fattest person succeeds in taking the prize due to their overally baggy outfits used to continue massive weight. Muffin tops always place second.
