My old ass just signed up to play in a summer Men's hockey league - first organized hockey in 30 years. Here's hoping I don't embarrass myself.
Today was the first day for the summer league and it went well. I have a lot of work to do on my edges and balance, but it was a great session. We finished with a controlled scrimmage. I found that a lot of my defensive skills came back pretty well and we needed them, ha ha! Our group won 3-1 and I had the 3rd goal - a nice wrister from inside the right circle that beat the goalie high glove side.My old ass just signed up to play in a summer Men's hockey league - first organized hockey in 30 years.

-3....now to wait for that phone call from the Flyers.We got fucked up 11 - 1... We had a blast but Holy holy shit they ran us right out of the building. I think I was -3.
It's about what I expected since most of us have not played together before, and the league director recognized it too. He's going to bump us to a lower division in a couple of weeks, which is just fine. We just had fun skating, but it would be nice to not get boat-raced.
My captain told me if I would have been his MVP vote if we had such a vote, but I'd have given it to our wing who scored the 2nd and 3rd goals and assisted on mine. I played a complete game - lots of defensive highlights (including a glove save - ouch) and about a dozen (legal) check/hits*. I am just glad we hung tough and got the W.I'm SO proud of U 4 facing down UR own SZN DEATH n Playing SUCH a HUGE role in the SHAMPSHIP. 4 a performance like that, U must have REC'D the FINALS MVP TROPHY.
