Praise for 100 Degree Hockey

"[Stephen Meserve] is literally showing his passion for the sport in general, for the sport in Texas and specifically for the Texas Stars. He gives us the blanket coverage we wouldn’t have if it weren’t for him. His dedication is admirable, and it is just fantastic what he does for us."
