A  departure from the normal content as this one scratches an itch: how to get adults who've never played hockey to give it a try.  Peter Munro has started a venture called "Beer League Hockey Practice" which invites adult learners in various Ontario municipalities to learn to play the game.  But will this also become a breeding ground for new coaches? According to one participant, a coach who's registered in the program, he's unearthed a whole new respect for what he asks his youngsters to experience. How did this get started and where is it heading? Richard discusses with Peter while co-host Dean takes a break to continue working on his PhD.
