The Hockey Games - How it all started
One day in 1997 we, six or seven young men, or rather grown up ex-juniors, were invited to Bosse´s home somewhere in Bromma, Stockholm.

This is the time when the fine sport spirit of not mixing sport and fighting is created.

Since it´s totally risk free to sit at one end of a table calling the opponent different things. He can hardly start fighting while busy moving players around a hockey game.

Anyway, Bosse dragged up a game from somewhere around the thirties, beats me how he got the hold on that one.

We "played until our fingers bled". The apartment was vibratic and we kept the liquid balance high.

The game broke down of course but a couple of handy guys found some tools we don´t know the name of and in some curious way got it back in order while Bosse was almost having a (only his first) heart attack.

The older junior Ralf (Raffe) seemed to be the one who could control the game best of them all and finished in first place. The other players were demanding revenge some other time and the tournaments were born.

The Second Tournament
Raffe who in some strange way won the first tournament invited the players to his apartment in Spånga, Stockholm.

With great confidence from the first victory and now being on home ground he was determined to kick butt properly. But Jonte gave him a real knock out by starting out with a 9-2 win against the current champion.

But after a couple of hours burning the plastic surfaces there he was again. This time winning the best-of-three final in sudden death against Harald (The man who could make the puck shiver by his screaming).

The Third Tournament
The reputation about the tough table hockey games spread around the city and many would have given their right arms to participate at the house in Sollentuna where the third tournament was held.

Haralds tactics this year was to get an advantage by offering plenty of drinks to the other competitors. this was the first year when the participants brought their own players.

The quality increase of the game was tremendous this year, excemplified by Tummen who had created some new combinations and was facing Raffe for the final after several hours of dramatic competitions.

Tummen won the final scoring 2 against 1 in a real rumble.

The Fourth Tournament
Carambole player Ceulemans would be impressed by the game of the fourth tournament held in the suburb of Solna.

A trophy had been purchased and some skilled debutants made the entrance this year. But only a few would feel the smell of the trophy manufacturers solution pools steam.

Among the rookies were Stefan, Henning and Uffe. All three of them showed great talents for the game even though Uffe was the only rookie to make it very far.

But Uffe on the other hand finished runner up with Tummen once again as the strongest in the final. The other semifinalists were Raffe and Harald.

The Fifth Tournament
Report from the tournament of 12/10 2002.
A well prepared crowd was showing up. Skilful Uffe ready to tango, Mats the rookie looked determined. Also a rookie, Tjomme, had peen training for four years to attend the tournament and Bosse fully prepared for Power Table Hockey.

Micke Hü looked like he had several aces up his sleeve, Raffe had a breakfast containing 3 hard boiled eggs, bratwurst sausages and cast iron.

Jonte probably remained at the breakfast table for ten hours since he showed up after the final was over.

Krister had intelligence and soberness as the main reciept, Hennings input was offensive engagement, Harald brought with him a couple of new four letter words, Peter tried penicillin doping and Stefan with lots of routine since the last tournament. Maybe this time he´ll aim for the top of the crop.

And, of course, Tummen the champion with an iraknian scarf to help with the concentration.

Some hours of hockey war once again came to the same four semifinalists; Tummen, Uffe, Raffe and Harald.

In the first semifinal Uffe really trashed Tummen with a 13-2 victory. When they come down they come down hard!

In the other semifinal Raffe closed the doors with an impressive defence. Harald never really got into the game.

In the final between Uffe and Raffe it was Uffe controlling the game almost from the beginning. Raffes struggling came close but Uffe was to be the new champion and it was the right man to win.
