Special thanks to; Assistant league director Mike Naczas who stepped up to the challenge of running the league while Bill was suffering from an undisclosed ailment and Kelly was suffering from an undisclosed lower body injury.
Mike had a record week for collecting dues… So if you paid in cash make sure you keep your receipt, otherwise Naz will be badgering you in a few weeks for the balance that you may have already paid on Week #3
New League Director
Just like Donald Trump had to relinquish his power to become President… Bill Abcunas had to relinquish his power as league director in order to become a player again and avoid any conflict of interest.
As of January 14, 2007 the new official league director will be the Abcunas' beloved cat Sinjin.
Sinjin will be responsible for the day-to-day league decision making and will still provide playoff predictions in the Spring.
Congratulations to Mauro Colucciello and the birth of his new daughter or as Mauro said... "I just had a baby girl Oliviana Colucciello".
However the best response to Mauro's announcement came from fellow linemate Mike Luise"I didn't know you were pregnant explains why you were so slow!!
Congrats Mauro... She sure would look good all wrapped up in a championship jacket (or fleece) instead of the hospital towel.
Another 2017 Spring Season 1st
Rick Cassano scored the 1st Shorthanded Goal of the Season… and Rick did something that might make him the 1st (and only player) to do this season.
Ricky scored on a Pylons Power-play in the 3rd period making him the only player to score both a shorthanded and powerplay goal… and the only player to score all the goals for his team;
Where does Rick get all his inspiration from?
It's Bergeron... It's Patrice
Shark Attack Win??
Well the team didn't actually win.., but a Shark Attack jersey did.
Since Ron Aquino joined Shark Attack he has not felt the joy of a team win… and quite frankly neither has the team itself. October 1st 2016 was the last time Shark Attack won.
So if you’re Pylon Goalie Jake Deehan and you forget your jersey at home… why the HELL would you borrow a jersey from such a cursed team as Shark Attack?
Last week after yet another 6-3 loss, Ron let Jake borrow his #1 jersey for his game… If I was Jake.., I would have considered emptying the trash barrel, taking the liner out, poke two holes for my arms and wear that (before donning a Shark Attack jersey).
We just checked the rule book; there is no rule against a goalie wearing a trash bag liner.
However; the unexpected happened… Ron’s #1 jersey is now actually a “game worn” winning jersey and our pick for the “Dunkin Donuts Player of the week Award” is Ron’s jersey.
Ron, I hope you didn’t do something stupid (and very hockey superstitious) like wash off the sweet scent of victory.
Getting 5 (Another 1st)
This first is a bit of a low-light so we saved it for last
First game misconduct went to Sergio Costa and his 5-minute penalty for slamming his stick.
Visit the P.U.T.A Forum Archives (Article 310) when we covered the following;
ANY player that tosses a stick in frustration while either entering the penalty box, or the team bench after a shift will be called for Unsportsmanlike Conduct.
ANY player slamming the boards with their stick in frustration will be called for Unsportsmanlike Conduct.
ANY player who commits these types of stick infractions and is deemed “excessive” by the referee’s discretion will face potential game ejection and possible suspension.
So why 5-minutes instead of a 1-minute penalty… you might ask?
Well we asked the same question to our referees and the explanation is simple.
The referee does not want to hurt (your) team by giving (them) a 1-minute shorthanded penalty for (your) impulsive childlike behavior. So instead they are basically sending you into “Timeout” for 5-minutes to feel shame.
