    Sworn to secrecy until Sunday, it's past midnight. Yes, pro hockey is back in Indy. ECHL team story/videos coming today for print, online.

    Love it! The Ice legacy is great but I am anxious to see what they come up with.

    "But, first, let us now praise famous moments, because something happened Tuesday night in Indianapolis that you can watch a lifetime’s worth of professional basketball and never see again. There was a brief, and very decisive, and altogether unprecedented, outburst of genuine officiating, and it was directed at the best player in the world, and that, my dear young person, simply is not done."

    It's been obvious since the Ice confirmed they weren't returning to the Coliseum, that something was brewing. Guess now we know what it is.

    That confused me and made me do some research on the Indiana Ice. Hadn't realized they were a Jr. Hockey team and therefore considered amateur. Interesting.

    Yeah, the most recent incarnation of the Ice came from Danville, IL after the pro team folded.

    The Ice are essentially a semi-AAU team.

    Great that teams of new sports are birthing here. First the Eleven and now a hockey team. Awesome.

    Call them the Racers, logo should be a hockey puck car speeding by. Observant fans will notice in the background of the logo there's another car wrecking. Nelson Skalbania is in it.
