Hockey Hockey & More Hockey

Well what a crazy hockey weekend that was. First off, a big congratulations to our guy Isaac Farrah and the Spruce Grove Saints who defended their AJHL title with a thrilling 2-1 over time win last night in Brooks. I listened to the game online and it was back and forth action, luckily the Saints pulled of the win. I still hate over time. It was pretty much an all out hockey buffet for me yesterday as I was doing prep and had one game after another on the go. The frustrating part was watching those hard working soul less Calgary Flames spank my Canucks last night. Take in Friday night’s game as well, it wasn’t pretty at all. The teams are really letting the hate run thru them, many they are feisty. Guess what folks, it’s part of the “game”. I’m not saying it’s right, I’m just saying it doesn’t surprise me. What’s comical is how much people think only Canucks players are cheap and dirty. Newsflash, every team has them, those guys that like to push and cross those lines of “fair play”. Throw in the fact that it’s the Stanley Cup playoffs, and it literally becomes “Lie, Cheat & Steal to Win” Remember the Broad Street Bullies of the ’70s? Those guys make these teams look like a bunch of choir boys. Of course, there was one  other hockey event that stunned many; the Oilers won the draft lottery. So it appears a less than thrilled Connor McDavid could be ending up in Edmonton come June. I’d like to be excited for this team and for the city, but I’m not. How many number one overall draft picks does a team need to turn things around? Chicago did it with one when they took Patrick Kane in 2007. Plain and simple, with this management system in place and their history of mishandling injured players, his last name could be McJesus and it wouldn’t make a difference. I hope the Oilers can do something positive here, but I just don’t feel it right now. Okay, enough hockey talk, time to get lunch ready. See you at noon.

There Was A Time

Well it’s a big day for a lot of people that are not Oilers fans. It’s called the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Rumor has it, they used to happen quite a bit around these parts. Some even speak of a time when the Oilers actually won 5 Stanley Cups. Lord knows that’s more (5 in fact) than my Canucks have ever won. The good Lord also knows that the Canucks have never been so awful that they actually have three  Number One Overall Picks too. See the good Lord giveth and taketh away. Don’t worry Oiler fans, brighter days are just a few short years ahead. Just remember back to when you were so fantastic and the envy of everyone in the NHL. You’ll always have that. Speaking of playoffs, there is going to be an awesome game 5 happening Friday night in Spruce Grove, details below in the Isaac Farrah watch. See you all at noon.

Go Saints Go

It’s a big night for the Saints as they can make it a 4 game series sweep of the Brooks Bandits and claim yet another AJHL Title on the road to the RBC Cup. It means a bit more this year as I have had the pleasure of working with Isaac Farrah for the past season. It’s been fun talking hockey with him and reminding him how pesky their next opponent is and to always shoulder check going back for the puck. He just takes it all with a grin and a nod. Plus, he also was probably the most popular Saint amongst his team from all the pasta I sent with him for after practices. Well, here’s hoping the Saints take care of those pesky Bandits tonight and take the next step to a National title in one month’s time. For the rest of you, feel free to come in and get your pasta fix for lunch today.

Call Me Popeye

Well hello famiglia and here’s to another new week, hopefully a much more positive one than the one one that just ended. I don’t know about you, but mine was crap. Let me tell you how it ended. Friday night around 5:30 my friend and Maulers teammate Steve were driving to our hockey game down St.Albert trail approaching Groat Road when we hear this odd sound of something popping and doing other stuff come from under my car. Oh no big deal, it was just the Timing belt being obliterated and suddenly I had no power steering going into the windiness of Groat Road downhill. I managed to strong arm my way to the rink, on time for our game, (we didn’t win by the way and score doesn’t matter) and then the discussion began about what to do with my car. I also stayed sober during the post game festivities (because that’s how I roll) so that I could drive Steve and myself home. Again, strong arming it all the way to his house. By that time I was exhausted so I just left it there and took his jeep to my place. Next day, the Santa Fe was fixed and we all lived happily ever after. Plus from all the strength I developed strong arming my car home, I started a new business going around opening jars for people. For now though, I focus on making lunch, it’s a good one today too. See you at noon.
