Whenever I went off to see the Solar Bears of the International Hockey League in the O-rena, I liked to think of it as "Hockey Night in Orlando." With much fanfare and enthusiasm the Orlando Solar Bears opened play in the IHL six seasons ago. Two weeks ago they won the Turner Cup signifying the championship of the IHL. A few days later the IHL was out of business, and then two days ago the Solar Bears announced their exit from the scene.
