L to R: Jimmy Ravagno, Jimmy Riley, Danny Shanahan, Tommy Ravagno, Billy Sousa and Jimmy LaGrassa. The Infamous White Belt Club. St. Mary's (1977)

The Ravagno Hockey Club was established in 1973. Every Saturday since 1973 at 4:00PM we have owned the Ice. We actually started off as the St. Mary's CYO Moose Hawks. The M.D.C. would only rent the ice to us only if we belonged to some type of organization. We were all in High School and I was fifteen so I lied and we got the ice. Our Group from St. Mary's would play the guys from Falcon St. This lasted a year or two until the guys from Jefferies Point challenged us. This went on a couple of years until we were all out of High School. In 1978 few of us got jobs at a Company from Malden called Data Printer. We had a few new faces join the group and the hour was called "Data Printer". As time moved on though the 1980's we still all played together. Data Printer went out of business and I just changed the name to Ravagno Club to make things a little easier. Life seems to stay still for us at 4:00 on Saturdays. I still play hockey in a rink that most of us had learned to skate in. I really consider myself a lucky guy. Being surrounded by people I grew up with, familiar faces from the past. The smell of the Porazzo Rink in East Boston, the roar of the jets coming from our neighbor across the water at Logan Airport.  We have had a lot of sucess coming from our Saturday hour. In 1979 the East Boston Sr. Mustangs won the no check league at the Town Line Twin Rinks in Danvers. The summer of 1984 we were sponsored by the Itam Club Post 6, East Boston. We walked away with another championship from the Town Line Twin Rinks. During the 1980's Ray Avola also had a team in the Summer College League up at the Twin Rinks. They were Sponsored The Boston Lobsters World Team Tennis, the Hockey Team was known as the Boston Lobsters (Hockey) and coached by Leo Shanahan who is currently the Assistant Coach at Northeastern University. Many of these players came from Saturday Hockey. In these changing times and the world being what it is today, I consider myself lucky. I miss my brother who can no longer play nets. I also miss my friends who haved moved away. To those who wives wont let the come anymore I want you to know the first beer every week goes to you. The last beer will always stay with us and thanks for the chuckles on your expense. Real men are warriors, we have the need for battle. Today we maybe in our fifties we battle like we are in our twenties for tomorrow we will hurt like we are in our seventies!
I just updated the last line, time is passing us by seems like at light speed.
