Adult league hockey players ban together to push a broken down Zamboni at Tampa Bay Skating Academy in Oldsmar on Sunday. Unknowingly to them, this is also a metaphor for the NHL and NHLPA Collective Bargaining negotiations. Via Safety Harbor Patch

Zamboni operator arrested for allegedly driving drunk at Minnesota rink

Today's hockey-related News of the Weird and Tragic: While Dornstreich was working with a referee, a parent ran over to say that the rink attendant was "weaving all over, slurring his words." By the time that conversation was done, Dornstreich said, the man was already backing the Zamboni onto the ice. And not very well, Dornstreich said.... People have been arrested in Minnesota for driving under the influence on everything from a souped-up motorized recliner to a farm tractor. State law says a DWI can result from driving any kind of a motorized vehicle, pretty much anywhere -- a forklift driver at work, a Bobcat driver plowing city sidewalks, a riding lawn mower in a yard.

So you want to learn how to drive the Zamboni

"For the last several years, the [Laurel Gardens] Ice House has hosted Zamboni driving schools around the holidays. This year, the ice rink is holding two sessions, at 9:40 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Wednesday. Tom Hendrix, general manager and owner of the Ice House, said that the rink teaches Zamboni classes on a fairly regular basis. People give Zamboni lessons for birthday presents, for example." The cost, $200 per person, funds programs for the Tri-City Eagles travel team and Fighting Falcons in the community league at the Laurel ice rink.

Keystone Lake Zamboni falls through thin ice A Zamboni took a dip in North America's largest groomed skating pond at Keystone Resort tonight. A driver was grooming the lake at about 6:15 p.m., when the ice cracked and the 7,000-pound machine began to sink at about 6:15 p.m. As a precaution, skaters were cleared from another area of the 5-acre pond, resort spokesman Ryan Whaley said. The driver was not injured. There was no word immediately on how soon the rink might re-open, but staff will examine the ice and remove the Zamboni Wednesday, Whaley said. "They'll take it out and we'll see how it is," Whaley said of the machine and the safety of the ice around the crater. With a lake that large, other areas could reopen immediately, he said. Once it dries out, the machine is likely salvageable, he said. Kenneth Waesche snapped a photo of the sunken ice machine when he stopped by Lakeside Village for a pickup game of hockey. His wife planned to do some skating. Waesche said that the "thin ice" sign in the foreground of the photo was some distance away from where the Zamboni went in. The lake is typically open from Dec. 18 to March. 28 depending on the weather, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. VIDEO Watch video of the Keystone zamboni falling through the ice.
