Our sport has lost one of its all-time great wingers, Robert Mentis of Brampton Midnight Express (Canada).  Sadly, he passed away during a game at the old-timers provincial championship in London, Ontario.  Even in his 50's he loved the sport and was considered a spectacular offensive threat.  He is best remembered for his explosive speed off the wing and his laser-like shot.  Bobby was one of the most decorated Canadian athletes ever, with numerous gold medals from provincial, national and international championships as well as a multitude of individual awards, both all-star and MVP's.  I will always remember him as the teenaged boy I would pick up with his younger brother Chicky to travel with my team to some ball hockey tournament where he would amaze, as usual.  If there is ball hockey in the after life, some team just got a whole lot better.
