It is something that we rarely picture. But could it happen here?
On Sunday, Paul Bruno of NJ.com thought out loud about
holding a high shool outdoor ice hockey event in the Garden State.

It is a rare occurence that allows me to write about two of my passions in the same post. As a kid, I skated on a branch of the Assunpink Creek that went through my parents' property. It rarely freezes over anymore, but in North Jersey, especially the Skylands, they get to lace up skates outdoors quite often. Even parts of the award-winning documentary, Pond Hockey, were filmed farther east - in Bergen County.
But where in the state could a game like this occur?
The coldest place in New Jersey of course - Sussex County. And they have two potential venues that would work.
My first thought would be Skylands Park in Augusta. It is home to the Sussex Skyhawks of the Cam-Am League. If you could get Century Link and other sponsors on board, it would be the perfect venue.
If that doesn't work, I have heard the new owner of Mountain Creek, Eugene Mulvihill, who has a big vision for the resort, could pull it off.
New Jersey as a winter sports paradise? Add it to the tourist books.

Turning the rabbit ears south, in the past, many kids in PA and South Jersey ritualistically turned their TV sets to Captain Noah on their local network affiliates. Captain Noah was more of a children's show compared to Floyd's, and because dad didn't watch this - I really don't have any memories of Captain Noah.

In the Trenton area, (besides Pork Roll which we've pointed out enough times), DeLorenzo's Tomatoe Pies, are a tradition.
In Monmouth County (and one in Westfield), you have the aforementioned, Windmill Hot Dogs.
In the River towns along Burlington County, you have Boost! Cola, which is like catnip to young residents there.
In Ocean & Monmouth counties, it's Surf Taco (thanks to John and Lisa for the rec).
And it may be a stretch, but if you went to Rutgers, Grease Trucks, are part of your vocabulary.

You could argue that this is merely a product of East Jersey's population being much larger. You could say that East Jersey just has more Italian-Americans, which all five shows focus on. And having the Zeitgeist of "Mayberry" with the voltage and excitement of New York City doesn't hurt either.
