Frozen Flashback: After 21 years, the puck will finally drop for the "Greatest Game Never Played". In 1989, the New Jersey State Ice Hockey Championship between Delbarton School of Morristown and St. Joseph's School of Montvale was cancelled due to a measles outbreak. The teams were declared "Co Champions" by the NJSIAA. As one of the most highly anticipated hockey championships in State history, this game generated great debate over who would have won. On April 3rd, 2010, the debate will end. Both teams have reassembled and will battle it out one last time for Charity.

New Jersey seems to have more than their share of unsettled sporting issues. Just last year they had to settle up a 1993 football game too.

Demo, what's NJ's fair share if two in 20 years is more than that?

I checked with Kurt Russel and Robin Williams, they said the fair share for each state is 1.

I played my last high school hockey game in 1989, and I played through college. Even though I still run and work out every day, they'd have to scrape me off the ice with the Zamboni if I was asked to play competitive hockey at this point in my life. Still, I bet that was a hell of a lot of fun.
