Everyone knows it is the defense that runs the Olive Pits team. Here we see the defense supervising the forwards warming up.
A professionally run league deserves professional looking referees. Congratulations Ricky on finally earning your referee stripes after two years as a linesman.
Okay John as my figurehead on paper captain here is the game plan for today's game. Trust me I know what I am doing.
Matt just so you know, the other Matt always got me the ball at least 10 times a game. You need to step up more buddy!
Pay attention Tony Medeiros how a real Portuguese sniper gets off his shot quickly and with great form. Odelay!
Now Ray let me show you how to set up your shot now that you are a forward and no longer part of the defensemen brotherhood.
Okay guys we are 1-4 and heading for a playoff DNQ, what is our strategy in removing the Great One as our captain?
Ric always remember the first rule as a referee in this league, no C or A on that shirt, you do not have to speak to the player.
Chris what do you say are you with me? I say we back Colleen as our new team captain and change the leadership and direction of this team.
Looks like the prodigal IR smurf has returned to active playing status. He can run but he still can't finish!
These young guns don't intimidate me with their speed and youth. I've been playing this game for 4 decades and still have a few tricks to show them.
Shawn keep repeating to yourself "whether during the game or in pre-game warm-ups, never ever screen your goalie or you will hear about it."
Guys pay attention, let the Girl show you how to warm up the goalie. Its not rocket science, even a guy can do it.
Ray be honest with me do I have what it takes to also make the switch moving up from defense to forward? I can be a goal scorer up front can't I?
Carlos maybe if we do something different during warm ups everyone else will follow our lead and we may actually start winning some damn games.
Now Pic after that game I noticed that you weren't calling any lobs and you had your back to the play over by the bench talking to the players. You need to work on this for the next game.
Encore casino has been VERY GOOD to the Great One!
Elder don't listen to Dave. You may be a rookie but you will never be in his shadow.

Dom's Over-30 Ray Bourque moment
Dom passing over the # 8 shirt
Dom pays respect to his elders!!
Yeah pay attention Mr. Bush Leaguer as I put on the foil. You can expect a close up look at this during our next game on December 8!
Cooch what are you smiling at? Becoming the latest Pink Stick Bag Challenge loser? You should be embarrassed.
It's lonely at the top being the REAL Over-30 league Director. The so-caled guy in charge is simply my puppet!
Dear Portuguese Gods I pray to you asking your help for a much needed win as the natives are ready to mutiny.
I can't be seen interacting with those guys on defense, everybody knows that Jason IS our defense and carries those two.
Even Jeff is drawn in by the magnetism of the Flyin Hawaiian and wants to be part of that experience.
Dan its not the stick and lack of goals that has caused your team fighting to stay alive; its your outdated coaching style. Time for a fresh new coaching style Dan!
We always knew that Dave was Nick's puppet. Either that or his personal hulk.
No Cappy now what are we supposed to do on defense captain? Raise the white flag and surrender before the game?
Back in my Darcels East Boston glory days I was a superstar God on defense. Pay attention guys let me show you how its done.
First it was Naz's stick that gave Mike that goal scoring touch, now he is looking for that leadership touch.
Tony showing off his complimentary "binky" gift (crying towel and binky) couteousy of the Over-30 league, given to all those players now playing without their personal binky players.
Don't worry Ray as you will only be carrying that pink stick bag until December than passing it off to Cocch.
Congrats Dave on winning your first ever Over-30 jacket. Just remember that all fame is fleeting!
The only time you will EVER see a Peabody Warrior alumni pay respect to a Team USA alumni!

Listen to me Jim, you make sure I double shift as much as possible, and you put Miv on my wing; I am not accepting any friggin pink stick bag from Naz!!
WTF Jamie did @*%$^ Cooch get hurt again?
I may no longer have speed and my shot can't break a pane of glass, but I can still line up and take out any player and get away with it being the Hall of Famer and legendary icon that I am.
Ricky the Director screwed my team over again and the refs keep screwing me out of assists. Don't they realize who I am? I am the boss of the Over-30 league damn it!
Yep guys I admit it, it was me trying to recruit Naz for our team. With Ray on IR we need a top shutdown defenseman.
God damn it I can't look to my left as I always thought I was taller than the girl in this league.
We finally got to see the fable play out in the Over-30 league of the Tortoise and the Hare playing on the same team.
Ron aka "the Flyin Hawaiin" is about to find out what happens when a runaway truck collides with a Big tree.
Someone please remind Jamie to never break the unwritten warm-up rule of stepping onto your opponents side of the rink.
Listen Ron from the voice of experience, WE WILL make the playoffs next season I guarantee it. Your personal streak of missing the playoffs comes to an end next season.
Now i understand how Gronk feels with all those defensive players always holding and clutching him to slow him down. The next player who does I am taking matters into my own hands.
Friggin Nicky I hate you. (shaking head) 15 god damn seconds into that final game you score and now I have tied Jim Barber for the most consecutive seasons of carrying that pink stick bag around at three.

That's right baby, there will be only 2 teams getting these 25 year anniversary jackets and we got the first ones bitches!
If you are the oldest rookie to ever win the Over-30 champiosnhip, this is how you celebrate the night after winning that trophy.
On behalf of Captain Quint staying on board and going down with the sinking ship, and missing the playoffs for two straight seasons, the crew bought him a present to thank him.
A priceless keepsake from Kato, a signed autograph photo after smashing that pink stick bag challenge, presented to all the hecklers standing in the Stadler and Waldorf sideline luxury box.
Hey look Naz up there, that light is out. Are we supposed to be turned around actually looking at the camera Naz? Nah, it's only Jeff, we would do the same thing if it was Jim Barber too!
Jason Glista made Over-30 league history when he actually captured on camera that elusive "Ghost Player" proving that said player does exist! Now if that appariton would actually show up for league games.
As Joe's idol, he should be proud to accept this award from the legendary Great One.
This is what happens when the Munchkin wins a weekly award as presented by the Wizard of Oz voting academy.

God damn it guys there are too many chiefs on this team and not enough indians. Let's stick to the game plan like we talked about before the season "Let's Have Some Fun out there." I know what i am talking about as I am the greatest Over-30 captain.
Is this the Pylons captain being a gentleman helping Colleen with her sticks, or is this the captain giving the girl a pre game hair braiding technique?
This is the look you get when you are constantly overlooked for that weekly Player of the Week gift card. *$@# Naz, the voting is rigged!
We will let the readers decide if this is Pat seeking advice from Shawn on how to score goals, or if this is Shawn seeking advice from Pat on how to take a good penalty?
Please do not refresh your computer screen. This is what 11 Guys, 1 Ball continues to see from their Pretender co-captain Scott Young every week. Another no-show!
Winter 2016 Season MVP? Papa Smurf
Damn it no time to take my usual pre-game dump in the bathroom, the game's about to start. We have purposely blurred this photo to protect the name/face of the innocent player.
#thenewStevepregamewarmups. @#*&@ Papa Smurf!
That's right people get a real good look, after winning the first-ever MVD award, you are looking at the "Real # 5" damn it!
Yep, got my stick ready to carve up any referee who doesn't give me credit for any more phantom assists.
I'm focused and locked in ready to post another shutout this week. Then again, why bother seeing how there is a conspiracy against me and the other goalies to not give us the Player of the Week award when we post these shutouts!
@$#* I forgot my money to pay Kellie. I'm afraid to go tell her i don't have my money with me this week. I'm afraid she will beat me up and kick my ass!
What's this a quiet and reflective Carlos? That can't be, he's too quiet. Who the hell is this imposter?
Shawn you are the best player on this team who gets zero respect for your efforts. Let me use my influence with the Director to work out a trade for you to come over to my team.
2015 Winter Season Photos
Rookie my ass! At my age I should be treated with more respect. Now where did I put that plastric bag to line the truck to cover up that body of the photographer who disrespeted me.
Hey Dominic, after seeing what happened to you in the game on September 26, it looks like you need this more than I do.
I was perfectly happy with retiring from the league, but no I let them pull me back in. I'm too old for this.
How many goals you want this game? 2? 5?
Godfather Don John I mean you no disrespect. I pledged my lifelong loyalty to you, I married your sister, I drop off the envelope every week filled with your take, but Godfather this guy Dominic doesn't listen to me, he refuses to pass you the ball.
Go Habs Go! I'm a proud fan of Les Habitants and I am not afraid to show it either.
WWE had Andre the Giant and the Big Show. The Over-30 league has Very Big Mike.
I'm still a top player, a franchise defenseman and impact player, I've filled in three weeks in a row and still I can't become a full time player. Maybe if I show them my athletic physique they will know I mean business.
Four straight seasons of missing the playoffs and I have a guy on my team nicknamed "Stonehands." I'm in trouble.
I can't wait to play my brother Steve and the Portuguese Power. I'll give them all my trademark face wash move.
Okay Gino as your appointed consigliere I'm advising you to hold out and not commit to anyone's fantasy team until they make you an offer you can't refuse.
Tony's binky? More like Tony is MY binky! There's a new Portuguese Power in the Over-30 league and his name is Dominic.
2014 Winter Season Photos
After getting off to a great start to the 2014 winter season and leading his team to an spot attop the league standings, it all came crashing down on Alby Luise as he became the first goalie in Over-30 league history to allow 2 goals scored against him on the same shot 9someone should remind that young fan behind the glass that this is only just warm ups.
If I practice long enough and focus I can add another trick to my skill set that further seperates me from my munchkin brother reminding everyone just who the better Mastrocola brother is. Repeat after me Tony "let's do this"
George hurry up, Tony and Dom are walking this way, we have to make sure and show them our brand new back-to -back championship Over-30 jackets.
It's okay, breathe, and remember that guy on my team in the pitcure is playing forward so I won't have to worry about all those cough ups on my doorstep or guys left uncovered in the crease. I can dandle him, but how in the hell can I handle the "that's a minus twins playing defense in front of me?
I can still compete agaianst all these yong wanna-be players if only I could loosen up. I'll show them all the legend that I am, the real number 5. This is getting tougher and tougher to stay up with these young bucks, I'm getting too old for this!
Sean,just observe and minic these two guys as they have the Portupguese juice and know how to score. Score some goals and maybe they will allow you to play on the same line with them one game. Don't worry about John Leite, I'm sure he will enjoy playing on the same line with Steve and Pat.
Mike what? It's not all about Tony and Dom. Just keep passing me the ball, I'm sure that soon I will actually see this on my stick.
Pic, do me a favor and watch all those balls being shot from the defensive zone into the netting resulting in a delay of game penalty. The refs last week called me twice for this and both times the ball was deflected out by the other team. Remind your fellow bling mice colleaues to keep their eye on the ball rather than handing out reutation penalties.
C'mon already and take the shot will you. My fan cluc is waiting patiently behind that glass wanting to see me rip one past the goalie, I'll show them and Joe Mancinelli just who the best-ever Knighthawk player is.
What do you mean that rookie Mike O'Neil won't be here today? But, he's my binky, I need him on my line. Damn, now I will never score today knowing that I only have old man Mike Luise and some other stiff on my line. I should just go back home now.
I'll show those two clowns, the director and assistant league director, just who is the player of the week is this week. That award is mine, this week I can feel it.
Please do not ajust your computer screen this is Papa Smurf in his halloween costume.
