2007 LTHL Winter Season Week 8

Played June 22, 2007 at Lemont VFW Hall.



Peter Basdeckis wore an old-school White Sox hat in making his LTHL debut.



The Report





Jerry Miller Sr. made his return to action against a fellow old-timer, cagey veteran Rich Thill.

The LTHL was back at it and with a bigger-than-expected turnout. John Medema was the story of the night, taking first place after starting out with a 13-0-0 run in the first two round robins. In the third, he went 3-2-2, but that was good enough to edge out Jim Rzonca for the top spot by a point. Third place went to the improving Joe Salazar, who had only four losses on the evening. Jerry Miller made his return to table hockey after hand surgery and we had a first-timer in the house as well. Peter Basdeckis drove at least an hour to get to Lemont and showed off his new Coleco-style game made by Carlo Bossio of Montreal. It's got the Blackhawks at center ice. Like many of us, Peter found out about table hockey through the internet, poking around eBay until he found some links that brought him back after a two-decade absence. He plans to play in the Coleco tournament on Friday, July 27 at the VFW Hall. Ventura Sias also put in an appearance after work to play the final two rounds. Thank you for the dedication, Ventura.

Jim Rzonca plays table hockey so fast, it's tough to get a non-blurry picture of him.

Look at all those table hockey games.
