Rather than going out to clubs or staying home, everyone used to go to the Clinton Arena for hockey on Saturday nights, well at least for 2300+ people! Were you one of em? Although it’s great to see some good ball, or in this case ‘puck’, the team to root for was the Clinton Comets, and it wasn’t just because they were the home team.
