Tales from the beer league part 2
Guess the last one got deleted eh?
Anyway today I played 2 games in 12 hours... Won the first won 7-0 and got a hatty and an apple, the. For my normal team we were down 3-1 all game and I got 2 late ones to tie it at 3 all. I going to sleep for 4 hours now and head up to the rally. Wish me luck?
How's the summer league treating you boys?

Ok something I just noticed but never seemed strange til now. In the final Hank went last, but quick went first in the handshake line. After our games the goalie is pretty much always first in our lines. Not sure if thats specific to norcal or everywhere. Just curious if you guys usually have the same.
Also won 5-1 on the night the Kings won, lost 4-1 on Sunday. Blocked 3 shots in that game and somehow not a one of them got me in the pads. I look like a red headed stepchild.

Everyone is different. But for the team I sub for the order is pretty random.

I post in the rink on hf about beer league play but I thought I would start posting here too. Anyone else deal with the guy on your team who won't stop trying to coach you and is yelling the entire game trying to get people to do this and that? I don't mind if the guy is better than me and/or is legitimately trying to help because I'm always open for advice, but he has no points in 3 games while I have 5 and it's just getting annoying at this point. This is my first beer league since playing junior all of my life so I wanted to hear some of you out and see if this is something that's pretty common around these parts.

I learned as an adult so the levels I play in don't have guys that got a lot of reps as a kid. My higher level team has some guys that played as a kid and there's a lot less yelling for sure. On my lower level team people often ask me for advice only because I've been there so long. I will say using points is a poor barometer though, one of the highest scoring players on the lower level team used to get his points purely through puck hogging and 2-3 minute shifts. He's a good enough skater to play higher levels, but nobody wants to play with him due to the rep he built. He's better now but just an example.

Ya I agree with what you're saying. To clarify I didn't mean to sound like a dbag when comparing point totals, what I was trying to get at was the guy is the weakest on the team yet the whole game he's ripping guys apart and chewing them out for making the slightest mistake and I can tell the rest of the team isn't having it. If someone wants advice I have no problem helping them out or having someone else explain something to them. This guy is new to the team like myself, not a team rep or anything, so he's just getting on the nerves of the guys who have been on the team for a while. I was too vague in my initial post, but basically I wanted to know if you dealt with these kinds of guys who don't try to help via constructive criticism, rather yell the whole game and just get under everyone's skin. I mean it's beer league not the show I figured everyone would just want to have fun while still being competitive, but I guess these kinds of guys are in all walks of life.
