So, How Was Your Day?

By Wyatt Earp | July 22, 2008

<i>t much more.</i>

We won the game, 3-1, but lost much more.

Ours? Not too frakkin’ good.

We won our ice hockey playoff game (Game 1 of the series), but when we returned to the locker room afterwards, every team member had all of his cash stolen out of his wallet. Nice, huh? This is the second time in a year that this kind of theft has occurred, and the total taken was in the hundreds of dollars. I got off easy: only $30-40 taken, but Randal lost about $80, and Badger and Vinnie were cleaned out as well.

What really pisses me off is that these toads had to see my shield and police ID to get to the cash, and they took it anyway. Frakkers. Randal sent an e-mail to the guy who runs the league, and I think it’s top-notch:

My entire team, Tony’s Place, had ALL of their money stolen out of their wallets tonight during our 9:45 game. Every single bag was rummaged through. Hundreds of dollars were stolen between all 14 players.

I find it hard to believe that someone just walked in off of the street and did this. This wasn’t a 2 minute job. Many of our players had their wallets deep inside of their hockey bags. These guys knew exactly what they were doing because cell phones and POLICE BADGES weren’t touched.

I think there is a good possibility that this could have been accomplished by employees of the rink. The only other people in the rink were the Lady Patriots, who finished up on the ice just before our game (most, if not all, were gone before our game even started). Rink #2 was empty. There was only 1 woman at the top of the stands. This obviously took at least 2 people (1 to steal and 1 for look-out).

I think it would be a good idea of you put the warning out to all of the patrons of your rink that there are thieves entering your rink and our personal belongings are not safe; not to mention a notice to your employees.

It’s messed up when you can’t leave valuables in a semi-secured locker room. I am really pissed.

    I’m glad you guys won.

    The theft just plain sucks. It must be someone that works there.

    I think being “Thieved” is the worse feeling in the world.

    It sounds like an inside job to me too.

    “Thieved” Admiral? I think this should be classified as a burgled.

    Wyatt- mebbe if you send some of the boys ober by dere to conduct an investigation, you know, one that might last for weeks and shut the place down indefinitely, the dough might magically reappear.

    When you do catch them, remember not to hit them with anything bigger than the Philly phone book. And always, always, remember–red is positive, black is negative.

    RT – I can almost guarantee it was an employee. There was only one person in the stands, and she was there for the whole game, and we were the only game going on at the time.

    Admiral – We were all plenty pissed, that’s for sure.

    Mope – Technically it’s a theft, because the rink is an open structure and anyone is allowed inside. I did think about shutting the place down and printing the room, but there had to be hundreds of prints there, and with the humidity, nothing would have come up, anyway. Randal and Vinnie sent the rink owner and the hockey manager e-mails. It won’t get the money back, but it will send a message that we won’t tolerate this nonsense again.

    Time to pull out the mouse traps for the wallets. With Taser attachments.

    Instead of mouse traps. You should use a rat trap.
    It would hurt more.

    Doghouse – And brown recluse spiders for an extra kick.

    Rick – I’m thinking ricin inside the wallets. But sometimes I go overboard.

    Randal – Good point. One more win and we move on to the next round.
