Rumble in . . . God Knows Where. . . . .
A blogging staple on Wyatt’s site show tales of glory and woe in the form of his hockey team . . .Tony’s Place. Last night, I made the long trek from Casa del Deathlok to view this sporting extravaganza.
I left the house at 6:15. . . plenty of time for the 7:00 face-off. . . . .or so I thought. This place was in the middle of nowhere. Around 7:30, I noticed that the cars around me all had snow on them. How far North did I travel??? Well, I was a little surprised not to see my friend Ant at the game, for surely I was in Canada.
Once there, I entered to find two ice rinks. As I entered the first one, I noticed a lack of activity, although there were people on the player’s bench and player’s standing around doing nothing. It must be a practice or something. Then I noticed that all action had not stopped. The action was on the ice with two players punch the shit out of each other. I crossed the hall and joined the other game (already in progress). With the crisp new uniforms and the neatly arranged names on the jerseys, I knew that I was in the wrong place. So, I thought . . .skilled, well uniformed game. . . . .goon hockey. . . . Okay, why did I not know that I had the right game the first time. My only excuse is that I was looking for the “Coach”, Wyatt. He was in the stands with Badgett. I got back in to see Vinnie through out of the game for taking a beating. Blood a plenty. He soon joined us on the bench.
The score was tied at 1-1. The opposing fans were bitching and moaning about the play and the ref and the cafeteria selection, etc. Then the floodgates opened. Soon any shot that was a shot . . .and some that weren’t were falling into the opposing net. If I were coaching, I would have considered replacing the goalie with a parking cone.
After a 10-1 drubbing, Tony’s Place skated off with a decisive win, while Blue Dog. . . . .well they Blew Dog!
Vinnie faired little better at the dome hockey table and split a 1 & 1 deadlock. Fortunately, he did not get thrown out of that game.
They are back in action tonight. Good Luck Guys! Don’t forget your elbow pads.
