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.
"In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years."

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!

The new Pink Stick Bag Challenger for the winter 2017 season will be Nick Romano. Nick's challenge will be either to score 7 goals or 6 goals (as long as one of them is a game winner) during the winter 2017 season. We forewarn Nick's line mates heading into this season, not to expect seeing the ball as Nicky will be shooting every opportunity he has. Unconfirmed rumors has Nazpraying to the Weather Gods to dump some major snowstorms on us during the months of November and December to keep Nick busy plowing and missing his games.

This week’s Dunkin Donut winnergoes to Joe Carltonof Team Cherry. Playing more like Randy “Stumpy” Burridge this season, Joe got motivated and stepped up offensively, scoring 4 goals to lead his team’s offense in winning for the third time in their last four games, as they make a playoff push. Staying focused all game, Joe scored twice in the first period, once in the second and once in the third period.
FIVE GUYS PLAYER OF THE WEEK 11-11-17
This week’s Five Guys awardwinner goes to Jim Barberof Trojan Horse. As we are still pinching ourselves to see if we are dreaming this, Jim surprised not only his opponents but also his team mates by scoring 2-goals and adding 1-assist, as his two goals scored in thirty seconds during the second period, turned a deficit into the lead for his team that they never relinquished. Maybe we should not be surprised as not writing a new Forum for 2 weeks seems to have freed up Jim’s focus onto goal scoring……….Shame!
DUNKIN DONUT PLAYER OF THE WEEK 11-4-17
This week’s Dunkin Donut winnergoes to Jake Deehanof Team Cherry. Jake stopped all 24 shots he faced in his game. In doing so, Jake posted his second shutout of the season becoming the league leader in shutouts posted by a goalie. Jake’s play has been under the radar this season as he has been quietly moving up the goalie leaders with consistent play week to week.
FIVE GUYS PLAYER OF THE WEEK 11-4-17
This week’s Five Guys awardwinner goes to Paul Correiaof Team Cherry. Odelay, the Portuguese prodigal son has returned to the Over-30 league! In only his second game played since his return, Paul made an impact for his team, scoring 1-goal and adding 1-assist in his team’s shutout victory and second win in their last three games. Woooooo!
