Hockey sprang to life in Waterloo, Iowa, when the Black Hawks and the United States Hockey League arrived in 1962. Immediate success on the ice allowed the franchise to put down deep roots. Paul Johnson, Jim Coyle, Bill Dobbyn, and a full cast led the Hawks to five consecutive championships in the 1960s against rival teams featuring players like Herb Brooks, Bill Masterton, and Paul Coppo. The Hawks' early accomplishments built a tradition that helped the sport through many leaner seasons in Waterloo. In more recent years, players like NHL All-Star Jason Blake, U.S. Olympian Joe Pavelski, and Stanley Cup winner Mark Eaton have developed their skills in northeast Iowa. Black Hawks Chronicle recounts the accomplishments of nearly 50 seasons of hockey in the Cedar Valley. Big wins and tough losses are remembered here. Read about the senior players who brought the game with them and the juniors who thrilled Waterloo fans before going on to star in college and professional hockey. For fans who have followed the team from the beginning, relive the exciting moments. For those who have only recently discovered the Black Hawks, find out how hockey became Cedar Valley's proudest tradition. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tim Harwood.

A collection of eight horror stories created by New York Times best-selling novelist Scott Sigler, author of horror/thrillers Infected, Contagious, Ancestor, Nocturnal and the young-adult Galactic Football League series. Stories in Blood Is Red: "Number One with a Bullet" In the high-stakes world of the National Football League, a wasted draft choice can cost careers and damage a franchise for years to come. When they investigate sure-fire number-one pick Eugene Patterson, however, they find far more than they want to know. "Red Man" (Parsec Award winner): To be marked as a sex offender, a pedophile, a child rapist, is to carry stigma that all but banishes you from society. And if that mark is literal - a permanent, inoperable face tattoo - anonymity vanishes, and all who see you know of your crime. For a man who is wrongly convicted of horrible deeds, this mark becomes his life. "Wolf": In the time before man, one social animal ruled the Americas. The wolf. Wolf packs roamed the continent, hunting and killing and breeding. But before any wolf ever saw the death that would walk on two legs, there came another danger.… "The Great Snipe Hunt": Nature abhors a vacuum. One such vacuum exists in the "urban ecologies" of our cities. From bacteria to insects, from rodents to hawks, from feral cats to the mass numbers of pigeons, plants and animals weave together a web of life that goes mostly unnoticed by humans. What is missing from this mosaic? Four college students set out to find this mythical creature, the "Snipe", and learn that a vacuum isn't the only thing nature abhors. "Iowa Typhoon": Come on, come visit Fenders Pointe, IA. We'd love to have you stop by, see the trees, smell the flowers, and relax with our Midwestern hospitality. Only, you should try to schedule around the rainy season. If you're here when the typhoons hit, we'll be happy to welcome you as a permanent re 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Sigler.
