Steve Bogoyevac has spent most of his life trying to escape the image of the "California hockey player." There were the training camps in Canada and Minnesota. The two years of junior hockey in South Dakota. The four years of college hockey in Alaska, and a season with a minor league team in Ohio, where ice hockey is serious business. But now, Bogoyevac, 25, has returned home and he's embraced a part of California culture that he had turned his back on.

The coach of the roller hockey team had been so angry about his team's lethargic play in Anaheim that he had to change shirts at halftime. Tuesday, Hull was happier because Tony Gruba, Steve Bogoyevac and Steve Ross each scored twice. "The shirt made it," said Hull. "We played a lot better tonight, but I think we're still at about 80%.

This is hockey in July. Roller hockey. A game with no Gretzky, no goons, and most important, no ice.

Injuries? Taking the opponent too lightly? Lackadaisical performance? How about just plain beaten by a team that was better prepared and a lot more hungry? It was all of the above and more Sunday night for the Bullfrogs at the Forum as the Blades rallied from a two-goal halftime deficit to win, 10-8, in Game 1 of their first-round series in the Roller Hockey International playoffs.
