A cool wind blew through the newly sprouted leaves adorning the trees around the skating center.  Overcast skies warned of a rain that would tease, but never fully capture the prey.  In the distance, silhouette gleaming like the birth of a new star, walked a man named Weevey.  A man who had finally returned to right the wrongs committed by the white sweatered perpetrators.

Translation:  I missed Friday and Monday because of the stitches in my left thumb.  Skating today was risky, but I couldn’t stay away…public puck completes me.  Also, I heard with my absence no one was double shifting or yelling at people.  Unacceptable!

We got our asses kicked today.  It hurts to type that thinking I’d be some shining beacon of hope for the dark squad, but white was flying today.  Tom, B. Brian, Mini D and Chip were the main culprits and their supporting cast worked us over as well.

Brown Brian stood out though.  When he engages his sixth gear it makes for an exhausting skate.  If you don’t have the legs to endure his fore and back check, he’s coming away with the puck.  It’s like the late, great Tom Petty sings in Here Comes My Girl…”It just seems so useless to have to work so hard, and nothin’ ever really seem to come from it”.  It can be frustrating as all hell.  So frustrating…

^^ if you haven’t seen Beerfest, watch it as soon as you can! ^^

The Ghost of Stan Mikita came out in white (which would have helped to even things out), but quickly made his way back to dark.  When I asked him why he told me “that guy always yells at me and tells me to change sides” I saw who he was referencing and replied “yeah, that’s Blue Line Bob he’s a communist”.  Really tho, that was GM Bob making GM Bob moves.

–Notable Moments–

  • Tom A. Hawk gave me four good stick schwacks, leading me to believe I shouldn’t of disclosed my injury to him before we started.
  • Chip had a few really nice goals.  The best was going short side bar down that had Sam flinching/protecting his collarbone.
  • The guy in the dark Bruins jersey took out three people.  I don’t think it was intentional, but he sent bodies flying all the same.
  • Shakey and I turned it on later in the skate.  He feathered two beautiful passes to me in tight quarters, one leading to a goal.

–Three Stars of the Day–

3) Chip: Solid day for the Chipmeister!  I even hooked the stick out of his hands and he didn’t get mad at me.

2) Tom A. Hawk: I’m running out of nice things to say about Tom, but as long as he’s sustaining a high level of play, he needs to get recognition.

1) Brown Brian: A well deserved top spot.  Shakey and I are gonna have to head to the Maestro’s laboratory and see what kind of three piece, cobra technology we can fashion to slow him down.

I have Friday off so it’s gonna be up to Shakey to keep you informed.
