Someone Didn't Do Their Job
Trash Can Talk
Either a caterpillar crawled up on Derrick Power’s lip and died… or Derrick is starting a new trend.., the Playoff Moustache? With Legends Last Stand teetering on the brink of elimination, Derrick is just not ready to commit to a full playoff beard.
Also, in act of disrespect towards Derrick… it seems he’s not worthy enough to make the team stats page as Joe Shannon is still listed on the active roster. Well “Mr. Stats-Updater” I know Joe Shannon and Derrick Powers is NO Joe Shannon… Do your job (please) and fix it so Derrick can show his family and friends that he’s part of the “Legends” for their “Last Stand”
Since Derrick is not on the active roster page, we are not sure if he even qualifies for the playoffs. We’ll need a ruling from the League Director on his playoff status.
The “Great One - Thousand”
So after years of being in the shadows of Ray Nickerson’s All Time League Leader in points… Matty“The Great One”Iannello not only passes Ray as the new “All Time League Leader… he’s the first to hit 1,000 Points.
"The Great One" Thousand
Ray Nickerson is still the All Time League Leader in “Phantom Assists” as he was certain to mention to Matty that he would have already had 1,000 points if the league didn’t keep “FU@&ING” Him.
The latest rumor is Matty is petitioning the League to change his number from “77” to “1K” and he wants Ray’s number “8” to be changed to number “2” as a reminder that he will always be #2 behind “The Great One”
Leominster or Bust
So you just scored 1,000 career Dek Hockey points in the Over-30 Hockey League and got presented with a ceremonial street hockey commemorative ball. What’s next… Put the Ball on Ebay.., Call Leominster and have it sent to the Dek Hockey Hall of Fame with Dan Broderick?
Nope… Assistant to the Assistant Jim Barber filed the ball under “Who Cares”
Over-30 Hockey League Hall Of Fame
That’s a Minus #5
Where was Hall of Fame Inductee and That’s a Minus Captain Dan Broderick last week? With his team on the verge of playoff elimination there were two rumors flying around last week. If you ask Mike Naczas “He gave him the week off” after their 6-1 beating they took at the hands of Goodfellas. While others speculated Dan was at an AARP meeting reviewing his medical benefits and checking on his Senior Citizens Discounts.
That’s a Argument
While Dan Broderick was at The Continental enjoying his $5 Steak Early Bird Special… he left his team with a lack of leadership and direction. Battling for last place has taken its toll on That’s a Minus.
Last week’s game ended with a loss and a Civil War… “You’re Lazy”… “You Suck”… “You Don’t Get back”… “You Don’t Pass”… “You Don’t Run”
Guys this is supposed “Fun” and “Competitive”… Not a Kindergarten or Daycare with a bunch of babies whining about each other’s play. Swallow your pride(s), Man Up and to quote Jim Barber “Let’s all have some fun out there”… Because as we know, “Fun” wins Championships (right Shooting Stars).
Ray Nickerson is not only chasing Matty Iannello in All Time Points… but it seems Ray is also chasing another League Leader
Ray is chasing current League Leader Steve Oppedisano for most “Unassisted Falls” during a game.
“Damn these hands”
Another week… another prime scoring opportunity missed by none other than Gary “Stone hands” Goodwin.
Ray Nickerson’s beautifully threaded pass, sent Gary in all alone… and like many prime scoring opportunities or open net chances… No Goal.
"Damn these hands"
It was brought to our attention that there is a potential saboteur amongst the Leagues front office.
In a year when Mark Stickney, John Desmond and Jim Barber are trying to make history by winning (4) Championships in a row… Someone in the front office decided to give them the last bye of the season.
We theorize that the schedule was actually drafted backwards in an attempt to “ice the kicker” or in this instance… derail the momentum train before the playoffs.
With FOURget About-it already clinching a playoff berth… well see it this dastardly deed pans out for the front office jokester.
