Why is this the best BLT in the world?

Honestly, this team is an inline hockey team. In Hawaii. Despite the fact that the only ice rink on island sucks, and hockey isn’t huge here, these guys come out to play at a roller rink that was built 6 years ago. I’m a soldier stationed here so when I move, I move somewhere with ice and bigger leagues and more competition. But here in Hawaii, these guys all grew up playing outdoor roller hockey at a little rink maintained by the state government that slowly crumbled and fell apart. And they still use the same torn skates and cracked shinguards. The entire league got together and put enough players forward to play in the Junior Olympics against the Canadians, Columbians, Australians, New Zealanders, and against the US team which has several players on the US development ice hockey team. Yet these are just a couple of guys and girls from Hawaii that have been playing all their life. There aren’t sports stores that sell equipment for hockey here so everything has to be ordered and shipped here, so these guys use the exact same broken stuff they have for 9-10 years. And they love it, they love the game, the crowd, the league. It’s life to them. Every night after the games we all get together at 11pm and go to the local Denny’s and just eat and chill. It’s a small community, but it’s as tight of a community as the Army brotherhood. I was accepted into the league a lot faster than I was accepted into my platoon here. So yeah, it’s roller hockey, not ice. And yeah it’s 4v4, but I don’t care. These people are the most deserving and humble people in the world and that’s why I’m nominating these guys.

Why we deserve to win the Westy?
