The Story of Uline Arena from Wizards Magazine

Uline Arena in Washington was an essential part of EHL hockey in the 1950s. It was home of the Lions (1954-57) and Presidents (1957-1960). I don't think this video from 2007 even mentions hockey, but is well worth the view for anyone who saw a game there or have never heard of it before. The Arena has been a transfer station for Waste Management, but in the video you can see it as a parking lot - seats and owners box intact, sort of. The video was for Washington Wizards Magazine.

  1. Really great history on the Uline. I didn't know Andy Brannigan's gang had such an historic building.
