    Default Tales from the beer league

    So I'd say 99% of us that come to these parts play in a men's Rec league. Let's share some good stories and hear how you're doing!

    Personally I play out of San Diego ice arena, and my team is sitting 5-1-1. Through 7 games this season I have zero points. I've hit about 3,000 posts though so the goals are coming! Nothing too crazy yet, although I caught a late elbow a few months back and got knocked out. Luckily that scrub is no longer playing. How are you guys doing?!

    My current team is 3-7-1, based out of Lakewood "The Rinks". I have 3 goals, 5 assists, and took one penalty for a hipcheck, ended up getting tossed from that game. It was worth it, as the other guy deserved it, he was bumping me hard all game long, so I waited til the 3rd period to give him the business.

    We played Monday night and some clown ran our goalie after he covered the puck, I pulled the guy away from our goalie, but our goalie went to town on him, throwing about 7 blocker punches to the dudes head while the guy was being smothered on the ice by 2 of our other players. The dude was KO'ed and laid in the fetal position for about a minute before coming to. Moral of the story, don't run our goalie when you are up 4-1 with 3 minutes left in a game.

    My favorite memory was playing w/ a then old timers team named the West Coasters....the logo of course was a cocktail glass and stirrer on a coaster. I was only in my early 20's. We'd travel down to San Diego and up to Santa Barbara for weekend games and tourneys. But one night we played the Senior Kings in Torrence (Bay Harbor). It was the night that the Kings defeated the Oilers in the Miracle on Manchester series. The Kings usually had a line of Vic Venasky, Syl Apps Jr., and Mike Byers. Apps didn't make it and Venasky came late....midway through the first period.

    To make make a long story short, Byers had no problem snapping 3 goals against me. They had some Russian dude that was pretty damn good in his own right as well. He netted a couple. The game was close (thank god their goalie was having some trouble). I think it was the early third when one of their guys snagged a pass of ours around center ice and cam barreling down. I was so damned focused I kept the eyes on the puck. He deked a few times and I gave no ground and made a pad save and smothered it up for a face-off. My guys all came off the bench cheering me on. Our captain asked me, "Do you know who you just stopped?" Haha..it was Venasky wearing his old Forum Gold roundish helmet he had played with for years.

    I then made a glove save on him. He towered over me, smiling. I looked up at him and said, "This is MY night, Vic!!" At least I kept HIM off the score sheet. LOL.

    We won like 8-7.

    Still play Beer league at Bay Harbor. Our team is in its like 10th season there. The last 2 seasons have been pretty epic. We have started off in last place, and ended in first with at least 5 game win streaks.

    Well the easy riders got their second loss of the season today. Played a hell of a game against a team 1 division higher. Meanwhile my point slump continues and now it's just getting ugly. If hitting posts were goals I'd have about 1000...

    I've been playing a roller league in West Covina, and we won our division the last two seasons. The cool thing is that we get beer mugs that say Champions on it.


    pretty cool if you ask me
