    Im ****ing dead at work right now. made it home by 1 bed by 130 up at 4. But while playing i totally forgot i had work this was a fun game. Won 7-5 @Peggy_GKG had 2 goals and almost had the hat trick. Team we played had the worst sandbagger he scored all 5 of their goals. He skated right thru our D and was back handing and just overall a douche. So bad that every time he was on the ice we collapsed everyone and clogged up the middle and he still wouldnt pass and tried to get a shot off. We played much better overall lots of O time kept the puck in and shot everything at the net. I did fall off the bench trying to get out for my shift lol. I think im hallucinating.

    Congrats on the win fellas, its a great feel! Super douchey about the sandbagger, it never seizes to amaze me that people do that, in rookie of all leagues!!! Congrats to PGKG for tickling the twine, twice!!!

    I hope ya get on a team too Jammer, I'm sure they'll find ya a spot!!!


    We had our 2nd game of the season, and my first game of the season with this new team last night. I was a bit apprehensive after looking at last weeks score, they lost 14-4! I had no idea of what to expect, especially after seeing that score. I talked to some of the guys before the game and they said their regular goalie is horrible.....grrrreat. Last night, we had a sub goalie that has played for them before, and he was solid, he has been in the pipes for 15 years!

    So we get out to the benches, wait for the Zam doors to close and then we begin warm ups. After a couple minutes I heard a loud ping/clash/smash noise at the other end of the ice. Holy crap, one of their players managed to shatter a pane of glass right behind their goal. The crew is quickly on the seen (two rink workers), well 45 minutes go by, and two pieces of ply-wood, with one having to be cut right then and there on the spot, we finally started our 7:50pm game at 8:45pm! This was cool though because it gave me extra time to warm up off and on during the repair job. I still am not feeling 100% like my old skater self yet, but I'm getting close.

    On to the game, I was paired up on D with the Captain, so that was cool! We had 3 full forward lines and I didn't want to mess with any of that business, we had two lines of D, awwww, it was so nice to just go every other shift and not worry about ice time! I'd say overall our teams were evenly matched. What beer league game wouldn't be complete without the other team having a ringer though??? Sure enough, they had an upper Silver player on their team, "Dr. Dangles" we dubbed him. Ironically, we didn't allow him to score. They went up 1-0 in the first period, then we tied it up in the 2nd. Then they went up 2-1 in the 2nd. We tied it up about midway through the 3rd, and then we scored the go-ahead and GWG late in the 3rd with 1:30 left on the clock! Final score, 3-2, we win!

    It felt great to be back out there, and it felt great to get the W after trailing by 1 goal for 90% of the game. I had a couple rushes from our blue line into their zone that resulted a couple of shots from just inside the circles, that felt good. My skating is getting closer to where it used to be, 1 or 2 more games and I should be fully dialed in again!

    Speaking of skates, I have been debating on getting a new pair, as my current Graf Ultra G5's are 4 years old now, and I never loved them, they just never fit right after a couple of bakes and multiple punchings. The biggest issue is a small bone spur? that has developed on the inside big toe joint where it meets my foot. That thing is a major pain as it causes a lot of discomfort when pressure is applied when skating. Last night I tried those soft rubber Corn Cushions on the area, and initially it worked, but then the pain returned. It is in the area basically where the toe cap meets the boot, along the inside portion of the skate. I tried on a few pairs of skates over the weekend at Hockey Giant (in the $199 range). The Bauer Nexus, a Bauer Supreme and a CCM Jetspeed. I wanted to try the CCM Ribcor (with the pump), but they steered me away saying they were garbage. I have narrowed it down to the Bauer Supreme s160 and the CCM JetSpeed 270. The JetSpeed fit a bit better to me, with less discomfort in the rear arch area. I know once baked, and skated on, they will fit better, but right out of the box, the CCM just fit like a glove, not too loose, not too snug, just about right!

    **I just checked the scoresheet, and I got credit for the game winning goal.....and I wasn't even on the ice for it!!**

    That fall would have been less embarrassing but i fell into the bench! About the sand bagger not sure how he finds that fun? He looked miserable outside since his team is 0-2 now ha!

    Nice that you got a win and didnt have the bad goalie in for your first game. I also looked forward to a screw up and getting at least a assist on a goal but no luck im still all zero. I love my ccm ribcor skates perfect fit for me.

    Thats cool man, I still want to try them on. As we know, everyone's opinion is just that. I know people that have them and love them, not sure if he was just being lazy and didn't want to pull out another pair of skates for me. The more skates I can try on, the better. The funny thing is, everyone I talked to said the JetSpeed would fit more narrow than the Bauer Supreme, but they felt a little bit wider, or maybe wider in the right places? I dunno.

    Thats the thing about skates no matter how many people tell you try this or that it really comes down to personal preference. Im sure dude was being a ass about bringing out more skates but hey if your dropping $200 plus on skates they better feel perfect.

    Looks like one of our players was disqualified from our division, so our second game goes down as a forfeit.

    My new skates, which replaced 20 year old Bauer Custom Supreme 4000s, are CCM RBZ, and I LOVE them!! These are Jr. size skates, never baked 'em or did anything, but they fit great and are so comfortable and lightweight. Don't know if they make them in "big kid" size. I tried on a lot of pairs before I got these. The Bauer Vapors were the worst. How does anyone use those??

    So, I recommend CCMs as well.

    And LOL about the GWG.

    THANKS FOR EVERYTHING, BROWNIE!

    The JetSpeed line is the new RBZ line. I remember trying on some RBZ's last year or so after they first came out and they fit really good as well. I think the JetSpeed line is a little bit more anatomical, so it locks your heel in even better than the RBZ's do/did. I'm glad ya dig them, I'm very close to pulling the trigger!

    Was he a ringer? If so, that sucks and is a bummer about the forfeit, on the other hand, if he was a ringer, I think it is good to see the league taking action against that. If he wasn't a ringer, how come he was DQ'ed?
