Sweatin out the gravy! Post Thanksgiving Skate Spectacular

November 25, 2023

Although it is quite a lot of work, hosting thanksgiving for the family, is very rewarding when you get the leftovers. Plus, you don't have to drive anywhere. It is quite convenient in that way. It was a very nice week off as well. Thanks for the well wishes for my birthday. Double Nickels this year. I am an old bastard. What a night of hockey though. A couple of low scoring ties. That was interesting. Also, family ice time for the Smith's. That was really cool. The biggest problem last night was the cold. One week your in a tee shirt playing kan jam, this week you are looking for a hat and gloves out of your trunk. WTF. 

Ok here we go, onto the games. Edge Doctor and Quick Dam. Have you noticed the newer uni's are much nicer than the rag tag jerseys this league was built on. In the beginning of the game, First period belonged to Edge Doctor. Scoring twice on about 20 shots. Mark Schaivone stood on his head. The two goals were scored by Nick Miranda from Andy Morrison. The second was Nick Nardone coming down the pike. Second, period Larry Lefevbre cycling to the point shot a missile past junior who was unscathed in the first. Mike Dussault settled in and kept the net clean the rest of the period. Although, if you have live barn, check out 8:49 of the second for the unconventional save. Edge Doctor answered that goal with 4 of their own. Stared with Ben Mello from Nick Nardone and Brian McDonald. A breakaway by Andy, resulting in an Adam Babikian goal. Brian would get the next one and then the final one Nick Nardone again, from Nick Miranda. In the third, the big comeback by Quick Dam. Does he or doesn't he have Mikes number. I mean Larry. Larry would score again. Speaking of Numbers, Junior got his number back. I think we know what we need to do now. The last goal of the night was scored by Mila Smith from her dad and Neil Yee. It was nice to have her score. Not enough though. 6-3 Edge Doctor. 

In Game 2 both teams scored in each period. Quite the emotional roller coaster. In the first, Manville Pizza got off to the better start with a goal by Ryan Degnan from Frank Nardone. Wait, Frank is all over the ice. Damn. Warrior. Late in the first Votta would tie the score, as I said in the spoiler opening statement. Richie Dias would get on the board. In the second period, Deja Vu all over again, Frank Nardone would get the Pizza the lead early in the period. However, late in the second, number 8 is truly great, Kreg Labelle gets the tying goal. In the third, not early but more midway, Pizza would again get up on the property. Mark White Gloves Kosinski would seem to be the hero. But with just 7 seconds left in the game. I mean effing 7 seconds. WTF Richie Dias would set someone wearing 6 up for the goal. 7 Seconds. I don't mean to sound like I am rooting for either side, but that had to be a kick in the nads for Pizza. Tie game 3-3. 

There is a note for help on this last score sheet. Now, I would call dcyf if it were not for the fact, that I believe in a little bullying and verbal abuse. It is a good tactic to assert dominance and respect over your children. And if it is your grand children, even better. Apparently, Ben is reaching out for help. It says on the sheet "I am being battered, and assaulted by Peppere. And Peppere is bullying me. I guess I shouldn't laugh, but it's funny. Anyway, back to the scoring or lack of scoring in this last game. Green Goddess versus Final Touch. Couple of stellar goalies in this one, Mike Baro for Final Touch and Brian Glaud for Green Goddess. So, Green Goddess got on the board first Gary Ouilette got on the board. In the third, Derek Anderson or possibly Ralphie got on the board. Not sure, either way Aimee set up the goal. And that was it. That was the whole game. Must have been exciting. 

Ok boys and girls. I'm proud of you. Have a wonderful week. Get those xmas decorations up.

Next Thursday Is Thanksgiving!! That is all!

How the ever living 'uck is it 60 out right now? I was sent a screen shot. The climate change is real. It is not because of carbon emissions flatulent cows or depleting ozone. Getting an EV car will not stop this, it is Theresa Morrison and Julie Avelar with early decorating of Christmas and singing Christmas songs in fucking October. Now I am not mad at them. I am just disappointed. I do like playing can jam in the November, if there is a plus side to all this. However, it will probably snow in April or May. What the hell ladies. You are tilting Gods will.

Ok, now on to the hockey. Votta crushed Vescera Law. Vescera was coming off a 10-5 win last week, only to get curb stomped this week by Votta Properties. Oh, hockey you are a fickle bitch. Sammy Woodward had a couple, Kreg Labelle with a couple and Al Whitton with a couple to really round out the scoring. 8-0 Votta over Vescera.

Middle game was a little more competitive. Green Goddess got a first shift goal to set the tone by Mike Thomas. Edge Doctor would tie it up midway through the period, Ben Mello filling the five hole. (Sounds dirty). 3 goals in the second for Goddess put Edge on the edge. Steve Owens, 2 not 2-2 got one with Thomas on a second one and Jarred Martin made it 4-1 Goddess. From my perspective that sucked. In the third Edge Doctor started clawing back. Andy Morrison with a beauty to cut the lead in half. Scott Reilly extended back the lead to 3 with a goal midway through. Glen Marshall would give the Edge some hope. It would not be enough. Reilly would get a 2 on one with Shannon Reilly, but selfishly took the shot versus letting his daughter give it a whirl. How does he sleep at night. One more for the Doctor by Adam Babikian, but it would not be enough as Goddess would hold on to win 6-4.

The Late one, Manville Pizza is a juggernaut in the scoring department. Jeez. 9 Goals in this one. it was 4-2 in the first. And Mark Kosinski already had 2. Ryan Degnan with the other one. On the QD side Shawn Smith with a goal and Neil Yee with a goal. In The second Ryan had another one and White gloves got his Hatty. What a tandem. In the third the action heated up Ryan would get his hatty. The next drop of the puck Neil Yee would get a second goal to make it close. Mark Kosinski would get 2 more though for 5 goals in total for him. Niel Yee would get a hatty for the Dam and Shawn Smith would finish out the scoring. 9-5 Manville.

Did I set the tone in this article? Did you feel like you were there? I don't care. Ha!! I hate critics. So, stick in your bum if you don't like.

Anyway, I do hope everyone has a very happy Thanksgiving. If you do not, or are unable to see your family, reach out to them. Even if there are differences and arguments, you are still family.

Love you all! see you next Friday!
