Every team now plays in a brand new Ball Hockey Complex
In only itís third year of existence, the growing popularity of the 
CASC hockey league has not only meant better than expected merchandise
sales (see previous article) but also growing team revenues. With 
this enormous cash flow, every CASC franchise has built a brand new 
Ball Hockey Complex. 
Letís look at some of the characteristics of each facility.

playing surface and another tier of 43 on the middle level. The 
upper level called "Martin Bouffardís Crybaby Corner" is a section 
where the under 18 crowd can enjoy a game. The outside of the complex
reflects state-of-the-art Lego Block design. Before entering the 
complex you cannot help but be amazed by the 75 foot high Ken and 
Barbie statue. Every seat in the Blow Torch is made of 100% pure 
Mecano Play Set Metal covered with Huggies Diaper Cushion; each seat
also comes with a lollipop, pacifier and the Heatís 1998-99 Play 
School Coloring Book that you can scribble on in between periods. 
When Ball Hockey isnít on the agenda, the complexcan be partitioned
into ten TV recording studios where the Heatís favorite kiddie shows 
are recorded including Sesame Steeet, Mr Dressup, Frisinette and 
Les Satelipopettes

the Heat like to spend their days off.

Rubber Duckies
