Trash Can Talk
Shoot out at the OK Carroll
Two weeks ago If you took a shot “on net” during the Golden Oldies vs Cuckoo’s Nest… there was a good chance you scored a goal for your team. Both Scott Rosato and Alby Luise were going head-to-head in a “Who can let up more goals” battle of the net minders… well, they weren’t really minding the net… more like just occupying it.
Extra Extra Read all about it… Matty Iannello Breaks All-time scoring record.
(Then breaks his foot)
The question wasn’t “Will he break the All-Time Scoring Record?” … the question was “When will he break the All-Time Scoring Record?” It was years in the making… and quite frankly all the drama of Matty Iannello chasing a measly 12-goal challenge… we overlooked the fact that Matty was only a few points behind All-Time Score Leader Ray “The Boss” Nickerson.
After passing Ray Nickerson on the All-Time Scoring Leader list… Matty went down hard in the 3rd period against Golden Oldies. We have (4) conflicting reports of how Matty actually fractured his foot. The league is currently investigating the following theories
Starting to look more like “Fat Matt”… Matty’s foot buckled under the pressure of his shifting girth as he cut towards the middle of the dek.
Ray Nickerson was seen tossing banana peels around the middle of the rink in an effort to slow down Matty’s scoring and points per game.
Sick of being Matty’s punching bag for goals in the Stick Bag Challenge… Goalie Alby Luise tossed a handful of marbles in Matty’s direction as he was cutting over the blue line.
Not wanting to carry the pink stick… Jim Barber was witnessed jabbing a pin into the foot of what looked like a “Matty-I” voodoo doll.
Now back to our continue coverage of the Over-30 M*A*S*H Report
This just in to the news desk: Shooting Stars winger John Mastrocola has been placed on the IR with an undisclosed hand injury. Donning a cast John remains optimistic that he will return this season and emphasized that is was not a freak masturbation accident. The last guy to fracture his hand and returned just in time for the Championship game was teammate Jim Barber… and he went on to post the game winning goal for Dead Men Walking, so will history repeat itself with John Mastrocola? (Stay tuned)
Shooting Stars winger Sergio Garcia also placed on IR this past week with an undisclosed ailment. However sources say that his return is questionable and requires clearance from a physician.
While Golden Oldies Luigi Derenzes is out suffering from the Norovirus… teammate John Colucciello is taking antibiotics (or anti-depressants) for the “Noshow” virus... missing his 3rd week in a row.
There is a petition being circulated around the Over-30 League
Attention Over-30 Players,
Scoring is up in the Over-30 League this season… and with the NHL regulating the width of goalie pads, drastic changes need to be made to the sport of dek hockey to ensure its integrity and standards are kept in the highest regard.
When players like Angelo “Kato” Deluca is leading the league and scoring at will… Matty Iannello, Dominic DeFrancisco and Tony Medeiros are lighting up the goalies week-in and week-out. We would like to propose the following change to the Over-30 League.
We no longer want to use the pink and/or orange hockey balls during competitive league play.
In lieu of these very challenging balls to stop from going in on a regular basis…and subjecting the goalies to unwanted criticism and harassment.., we propose using the following ball for the remainder of the season.
Proposed Dek Hockey Replacement Ball
Please show your support for the goalies GAA and sign the petition… Otherwise the Goalie Union (Local 5GAA) will be forced to take a vote on a potential goalie strike.
In the event of a Goalie Strike..., Shooter-tudors, Spinning the net backwards (and flipping it down) and/or dressing a barrel in net will all be sanctioned methods for all games.
Please Show your support and sign the petition today!!!
