Hockey’s Back!

Saturday, October 3rd, 2009

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! My ice hockey season is underway, the NHL is back, and my fantasy hockey team is drafted. And naturally, since I do not have the luck of the Irish, I have stories about all three. To wit:
1. Our hockey season started on Thursday, [...]

It’s Hockey Day!

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

Tonight is our ice hockey preseason debut. We were supposed to play on Thursday but were bumped for some punk college kids. Hopefully, that won’t happen again, or I’ll have to go up there with a sharpened hockey stick.
After yesterday’s NASCAR race, I have a little cold, but I should be okay for [...]

Rink Rat Wrap Up

Friday, August 14th, 2009

Well, the boys’ hockey season ended last night with a lot of fun. The four league teams split up and played a scrimmage before trophies were distributed and hot dogs and drinks were served. It was a great night to celebrate a pretty good season overall.
Now, while Kyle didn’t repeat last year’s 12-0 [...]

Blackhawks Right Wing Patrick Kane: Idiot

Monday, August 10th, 2009

No one is ever going to accuse hockey players of being geniuses. Most are farm-fed country boys who play for the love of the game, and not for the almighty dollar.
That being said, unlike other professions (*cough* the NBA *cough*) the NHL has the least amount of scumbags per capita than any other major [...]

Kyle Earp: Only Jesus Saves More

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

Would you mess with this kid?
Luckily for them, the yellow team didn’t mess with him or Kyle on Tuesday night, because the boys – as well as the rest of the team – was en fuego. With the season winding down, they needed some wins – the team finished with another tie on Sunday [...]

Hockey Night In Philadelphia

Friday, July 31st, 2009

Well, since my last hockey update, the boys played only two games. The rest have been postponed due to the constant thunderstorms that have been hovering about my fair city. The first game was a massacre. Kyle and Erik’s team lost by a score of 11-2. I was working, but the [...]

Welcome To Hockeytown

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

Population: Kyle and Erik.
Well, I told the boys it would be difficult to go the entire season undefeated. In this case, it came at Game #2. Tuesday’s game was rained out, so the make-up game was last night. And it didn’t take long to tell which team was the dominant one. [...]

Flyers, Bruins Set For NHL Winter Classic

Friday, July 17th, 2009

Frakkin’. Awesome!
BOSTON – With Red Sox reliever Hideki Okajima playing catch in the outfield and a bright blue summer sky hovering over Fenway Park, Boston Bruins defenseman Aaron Ward stood on the infield of the major leagues’ oldest ballpark and pretended to be miffed.
“That’s how they got me down here,” he said. “They told [...]

The Rink Rats Have Returned

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

And this time, it’s personal!
Okay, not really, but it’s pretty fun having two of your kids on the same hockey team. The Bustleton Bengals street hockey league began last night, and Kyle and Erik couldn’t have been more excited. We were worried for a moment, because the league didn’t have enough young kids [...]

A Sunday Morning Funny

Sunday, July 5th, 2009

The Philadelphia Flyers have acquired defenseman Chris Pronger and forward Ryan Dingle from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for Luca Sbisa, Joffrey Lupul, [...]
