Guyism: Last week, League owner and “entrepreneur” Cary Eskridge released a statement, in part to show the world he was serious.
“Eskridge has an extensive hockey background and feels now is the time to finally breathe life into his long-time dream. Eskridge has a background in video production and has also owned inline hockey leagues on and off for the past 20 years and believes the Bikini Hockey League could bring back the popularity and awareness of inline hockey to the mainstream and introduce new fans to a great sport. Starting next month, Eskridge will start filming the pilot of a reality TV show that revolves around a bikini hockey league.. But many are asking, “why Tulsa?” Why not a larger sports market such as New York or Los Angeles where more fans and potential participants can be reached? League owner Cary Eskridge feels Tulsa is a good location for many reasons. Tulsa’s
central location is one factor. “You just have to look at other major sports that have come to Tulsa,” said Eskridge. “One of Tulsa’s biggest events on a national scale is the Chili Bowl Midget Nationals held every year at the QuikTrip Center. Many thought it would never work when it started more than 25 years ago and now Tulsa is one of the biggest reasons that event works here.”

Not really sure how I feel about this one. Don’t get me wrong, I love girls in bikinis but I grew up on skates and this isn’t the way I want the game to get more recognition. Sounds more like a halftime show for The Tropics failed basketball league. With all of that being said, where can I buy tickets and what channel can I watch this on?
