Back To Respectability

By Wyatt Earp | October 31, 2005

Someone call Hell and get the weather forecast.

The X-Men actually won a game last night, beating the Ice Bandits by a score of 5-1. I was as surprised as you were, considering the Bandits spanked us the last time we played, 6-0. The contest got a little chippy after the first period; yours truly took a lovely elbow to the jaw, and my linemate Chris took a stick to the face, causing a laceration above his eye. Chris couldn’t care less about the injury – which probably needed stitches, but he wouldn’t hear of it – his main concern was that he got blood all over his new jersey. Now that’s a hockey player!

As far as ol’ Wyatt is concerned, I didn’t score any points, but played a pretty good defensive game, and kept the Bandits of the scoreboard when I was on the ice. (That’s about the closest thing to “self praise” you’ll get from me.) Long story short: I didn’t suck.

The win puts the X-Men back at .500 (2-2), and on a collision course with “not half bad” status.

    Do I get double points for beating steve(my brother) out of 2 FIRSTS?

    Isn’t there a saying that old age and wisdom beats out youth and enthusiasm?

    Welcome aboard, Joe. Steve is gonna kill you now!

    I would agree with that other statement, but some of those young guns last night were skating by me like I was standing still.
