Winter is coming folks, and so is the freezing cold hockey bags because the mrs won’t let you bring your bag inside. My gloves smell like a bad batch of broccoli sometimes so this could be bad news for anyone in my locker room… At any rate, let’s unglue the week that was in Scohaville.
I’m sure there’s a lot of players hanging like an olive today after last night’s festivities, but the SCOHA Blog Headquarters is business as usual. Some bigtime scorers came to the rink last week ready to bulldoze the opposition while others drove to the arena to give it a sporting chance despite a persistent cough with phlegm. Let’s roll back the game film and review a busy last week of action at the epicenter of adult hockey culture….
Well some players got the ultimate gift in a Peloton super exercise bike while others got the opposite: a soda pop machine and a 1 yard Mars bar. Those guys are dreading this weekend’s games, lugging around 8 extra pounds of Molson muscle mixed in with gravy and those tasteless small dinner rolls that go stale after 2 days. Anyways, let’s quickly unwrap last week’s SCOHA action from both end’s of the ice... Holiday Egg Nog Edition.
Well the tree is finally up and the pressure is on. Players are eating a lot more chocolate this time of year which means more energy on the ice. Let’s try and maneuver through the mall crowd and get to the weekend that was in Scohaville.
Well fellas, we are plowing through the holiday season without any major incidents so far. Ed Walton’s tree has fallen down twice but he will realize soon enough that he needs a tree stand to make it stay upright. Junior Division teams had the week off so they are all chored out and ready to lace up their twirlers again this upcoming weekend. Let’s put a bow on the past week that was in Scoha City.
Has there ever been a goalie with 2 shutouts in one night? Bruins' Joe Locicero shut the front door, shutting out the Stars 2-0 then filled in for the Bruins as they folded up the Sharks like a used picnic blanket by a touchdown. Great night Joe!!!2 weeks ago we saw more spares than a 10-pin bowling tournament. This past Friday night Junior Division saw a few teams with plenty of leg room while getting changed due to guys missing but hey, it’s a busy time of year for most. I took in the Junior games Friday night and lemme tell ya, these guys can skate! Penguins got some help with a roster addition that should help. This new Ali Poshni kid has speed and can stickhandle around sidewalk ants for crying out loud. I saw a sign in the crowd that said “Poshni a Beer” so he is warming up to Penguin fans already… He was given hockey genes at an early age and I am not talking about the kind of genes you wrap a belt around. At any rate, let’s barge through the weekend that was in SCOHA.
We’re all still chasing the dream of hoisting the SCOHA Championship trophy. Division standings are getting tighter than a snare drum as we approach the Christmas break. More than half of us still don’t have the damn tree up yet while others had things up 3 weeks ago, have fun with that January hydro bill… My predictions I posted before last weeks games didn’t pan out as expected but as my good buddy Wayne once said, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take…” That aside, let’s untangle the week that was in Scohario…
Scohaville is ready to turn up the heat as winter weather has hit us in the face like a bird on a clean window. 3 games finished in a tie which messed up several Proline tickets. Intermediate Canadiens remain on fire with their 7th straight win while other teams are continuing to have more knots than a sailboat... Fans are starting to fill the bleachers, losing their lungs cheering on their favourite Scoha heroes. Let’s peel back the onion on the week that was…
