Dominic "The Dominator" DeFrancisco is without doubt one of the best hustlers in the game.., but last week Dom was out hustled by a new recruit prospect.., that made the league director comment .., "When was the last time you seen Dom get out hustled?"
The unnamed newbie prospect stock went up 10-points after witnessing that epic battle;
Prospect - 1
Dominic - 0
Congratulation to all the players that played (and the referees) who participated in last week’s Rhino's vs Gang Green historical game.
You all made "His-TIE-ry" for playing in the Rhino's All-Time League Leading 4th Tie of the season.
As we check the standings this week.., they are exactly where Dan Broderick said a team with that many ties will be.., "In 3rd place!"
We're only halfway through the season.., could we see a 5th or even a 6th tie and will they finish in 3rd as the only man from the Over-30 League to be inducted into the Dek Hockey Hall of Fame predicted?
BYE Week Award Sandwich
You take (2) Slices of Dunkin Donuts Player of the Week Awards and you stick a BYE week in the middle of them and there you have it a (5-goals, 3-assists) sandwich worth $20 of FREE coffee.
After another back-to-back multi-goal game that resulted in a natural hat trick.., there is no truth to the rumor that Vulcan Industries is considering making a Vulcan Black Promotional Poster featuring Jim Barber.
What is true is Vulcan CEO John Kelleher is looking to put together another order.., so if you want one, or want to replace an obsolete Vulcan or Snipe stick.., talk to John.
Sure, you'll spend $100.., but you might get some of that money back in the form of FREE Coffee & Cheeseburgers.
Attorney Disclaimer: Not all Vulcan Black Stick users are guaranteed FREE Coffee & Cheeseburgers. Just like Red Bull doesn't give you wings.., Vulcan Industries does not guarantee goals.., as you still need to be talented.
Some restrictions apply, not valid in all 50-states, no money back guarantee.., so ask your wife's permission before investing.
2019 MISI Award?
Did anyone save Dan Broderick's broken Mylec Stick Blade?
After almost breaking it over Jim Barber's head.., the league's most "Senior-est" player had a "Senior moment" and forgot to drop it before being called for a penalty (ironically, right in front of his own penalty box)
Dan's blade should have been autographed and saved for the 2019 MISI Summer League and awarded as either the "Iron Man Longevity Award" or it could have be awarded as the "2019 MISI MVD Award" to give Jason Carrien something to win during the summer.
Piece of Lumber
Dan Broderick had to do something he hasn't done in many years.., go to his back up stick.
Dan's back up stick is a true piece of lumber in the form of a 2001 Montreal Wooden Stick (circa 2000).., about the same time Matt Farrell was in grade school.
No "I" in TEAM
Speaking of Matt.., there’s no "I" in "TEAM".., but all those letters are in "Matt Farrell".., and why is that important?
It's not.., but;
Matt Farrell came into this league "legally" through a sponsorship program that has some players calling for Matt's birth certificate and his registration application to be made public.
They want to know if Matty checked the box saying stating he was "Over 30" and if he's illegally taking advantage of the elderly.
We checked Matty's DNA on Ancestry.com and learned that he is 86% 30 (on his mother's side) and has committed no fraud.., and furthermore DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) states that Matt has every right to stay in the league because he is playing in his 3rd season and that counts as an "Anchor Baby" status.
So for those of you who want to build walls to keep Matt out of the league.., just remember there were other players before Matt that snuck in under the radar (Ray Dow, Jason Carrien) to make teams a little better, bring some fresh competitive talent to the league and to; Make Abcunas’-league Great Again
MISI Stock Report
With daylight savings only a few weeks away.., it's time for the MISI Captains to begin scouting their summer draft picks.
Sources say that after (2) “Player of the Week Awards”; Jim Barber's MISI stock is trading higher and scouts expect him to go before the 4th round (as previously and erroneously drafted)
Those same sources also predict that "Back-To-Back Champion" Mike Naczas will not be the last pick this season. Mike's leadership and promotion to Defense Coordinator for Black Hole, coupled with his "Shut Down Defense" (Check the stats they don't lie).., has some MISI Captains thinking they may want to consider trading up in the draft to get Naz before the last pick of the draft.
Gang Green Defenseman Brian Capodilupo is also seeing huge gains in his stock this week as Cappy buried his second goal in back-to-back weeks. Unconfirmed rumors are floating his name as a potential replacement captain.
With Gains comes Losses.., and unfortunately Shawn Miville has been downgraded to a potential 2nd round with his disappointing Rhino season(s) along with his lower body injury.
Last week President Donald Trump has declared a National State of Emergency to get the additional funding for "The Wall" which clearly needs some extending...
