    There is one team that will smoke us. It's like they haven't aged.

    Man, that was brutal. 4-1 lead turns into an 8-7 OT loss.

    That shouldn't have happened.

    Hey man I may be the worst skater but damn I look good! It's a total blast playing on a fun team again. I was about to post a few weeks ago how down I was on league hockey and how pickup became my thing. On a side note, been playing a lot with that beauty Homer Simpson lately. Good times. Anyway, go Dead Deer!

    Well our new season is two weeks old and so far so good in the upper division that we got moved up to. Last week we lost in overtime, and last night we edged out a team of dickheads that aren't used to losing, 4-3. Our regular goalie was out sick and a few guys were too pickled to play because they were watching the college football championship. The roster was looking slim with initially only 4 guys, I almost didn't play because only having 4 guys really sucks, especially for a 9:45pm game. We ended up with 6 skaters, game on! Our sniper @eddieshack23 rang the post at least 3 times last night and almost had a nice wrap around, banking it off the goalie. I ended up with 2 goals and one of them was the goal of my life, no joke, even two guys on their bench said, "wow, that was nice man" as I skated by back to our bench. (I hope that didn't sound arrogant, but I was really stoked on the goal!)

    In case you are wondering about why this goal was the goal of my life, it went something like this. (as far as I can remember)
    I received a pass coming out of our end, right around center rink. Skated it up the right wing side, but not necessarily along the boards, more towards the center area of the surface. I had one d'man in front of me and I forget who on our team was coming up the left side. Usually in those situations I will gain entry and snap a quick snapper through the D'man's leg on net. Well this time was no different except that as I looked towards our left winger (as if i was going to pass) I backhand toe-dragged the puck to my right (i'm a lefty) around the d'man and turned him inside out, I was then in alone on the goalie and I came in at an angle, fading to my left and as he started to open up to move to his right, I slid it in 5-hole. I couldn't believe I pulled it off!

    we're a little over halfway through our winter season. Finally got back on the scoreboard this past sunday for what felt like the first time in forever. It was a strange goal which might be worth a share, not so much for the goal but the interaction.

    I jumped up into the rush from D, took a pass at the blue line and from the right side dumped it straight at the boards. I jumped past the defender collected the puck at the right side of the net (it was dead, not rimmed) hit the brakes and popped back in front of the net. The goalie was standing straight up in front of me and I still don't know what he was looking at but I stuffed it home and got cleaned out by the D. As I was getting up I noticed the goalie just staring at me and I said to him "Dude I thought you were gonna drop down" he said back to me "I have no idea where you came from". He must have lost the puck completely on the dump or something but he was still utterly confused how I magically appeared in front of the net with it. We won the game and he made some great stops along the way but it was one of those fun moments.

    I play at TSC. They decided to take a 7-year hiatus (or like 4 weeks, somewhere in between there) for the holidays so I don't get to play again until next weekend.

    It's been so long I can barely remember what the ice smells like...

    If you have rollers and have been not coming by my place for pickups, you suck!
