The parking lot and street games are long gone, but the passion and desire to play competitive hockey resides in our hearts and minds.., now it's just played through aging, sore, and over-weight bodies.

New League Shirt Policy
Attention all players
Effective immediately going forward, there is a new Over-30 league shirt policy in effect. Players will not be allowed to cut the team shirts once they are handed out. Especially to the sleeves and removing the stripes. There is the expectation in the Over-30 league that you "respect" the shirts that are handed out to start each year.
As some of you know this year, the league changed shirt suppliers after dealing with the same shirt supplier for many years (who subsequently went out of business). The shirts did not fulfill the expectations as in previous years. Consequently, the league is currently diligently working on resolving this issue for next year and having a new shirt supplier in place over the next couple of months. A similar style and fabric material that you wore last year is the focus of the league. In addition, we will be exploring a 3/4 length sleeve option going forward.
The player everyone can thank for this new rule being implemented is Sergio Costa. We don't know if this is a Portuguese fashion statement; we do know that we expect all the Over-30 players to wear a team hockey shirt, not a cut-off gym sweatshirt. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you exhibit A below, and the Serg look.
PS, Sergio is not alone here in choosing the wrong shirt fashion statement; there are other players just as guilty. The league will not call them out but you will all notice who they are.
On the left you have your classic veteran player respecting the Over-30 league shirt. In the middle you have the younger Over-30 player wearing the gym cut-off thug look!
