See if you can find this shirt:  "CRUNCH" ???   :duno:

There's a minor league hockey team (AHL) called the Syracuse Crunch. Looking into it...

ETA: Bates Battaglia played 29 games for the Syracuse Crunch in the 2009-2010 season. Is he the one wearing the Crunch shirt?

Kiwi,wonderful set of video clips! I don't believe I've ever seen such clear video footage of how the camera-sound crew is in motion behind a team moving this way, then thataway.

(Good teaching video for future TAR detectives worldwide! :) )

Nice work Peach!

4. Team Red F/F (notice the names and number on their tops, obviously cast because of a specific sporting background - roller derby anyone?)

Freaky coincidence or am I just an amazing guesser..?  :lol:

Nice work Peach!  :yess:

Oh wow, we've got two sets of athletes now,  :colors


Ok, I might be forget to say this (or else already stated somewhere in here, i'm sorry) but while I met the Son from Utah Father/Son team, I sit close by them in the waiting room, just wanted to get their insight up close, and when the Father went to the toilet, the Son was playing around with his wheelchair, now I'm not talking about playing around like what a normal kids do, instead he was doing somekind of tricks and manuever with the wheelchair..!  :o.  I was like.. WHAaattt??! And he fell to the ground after several tricks.. And the camera and sound guy laughed so hard (me too, but i was kinda holding it pfffpfpfff  :snics: )

i don't know if the above information could give a little hint, maybe he's a former BMX bicycle or Skater boy, :duno:  , but he does have kinda skater's style (he wear skater's cap)

Utah was the site of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, and all of those facilties were built for permanent use. It's also quite possible that the extreme sports skills might have come from snowboarding, as well as the possible summer extreme sports.

We've had snowboarders in recent seasons, right? so there's a lot of different ways those skills could have been developed. But I agree, that extreme sports skills may be a tanget that can be explored as far as identification.

Connor had the same type of cancer that Lance Armstrong was diagnosed with following the 1996 Atlanta Olympics (and almost the same age).
So Connor's connection to Livestrong is entirely appropriate. And the coincidence is just eery.
