I skated out to take the face off in last friday nights hockey game and as I was waiting for the referee to drop the puck I noticed something scribbled on the blade of my hockey stick. With closer observation, it became pretty obvious that my youngest son, Pete, had punked me again.

I like the Cathy (nonexistant) Nose.

…I think this might become my new personal logo…

I’m thinking this drawing struck FEAR in the hearts of the other team. As they shrank back in fear and trembling, I hope you got to score a goal or two…

Dennis Jones

…I think you may be right because I got one goal and two assists in the game… maybe I need to outline that little picture with a black Sharpie so the other team can see it better…

Peter has a future as a caricaturist artist. Forget that accounting stuff…

…but SOMEbody needs to count them beans…

The Official Hockey Game Report !!!

(1) …this game started at 10:30, (which is kinda late), so no one bothered to show up for our team… we had our goalie, one starting line, and one sub… a Quizno’s I believe…

(2) …one of our players took a 5 minute major penalty within the first 3 minutes of the game, kinda went crazy, the refs tacked two more penalties on top of that one and threw him out of the game… this left us with no subs and 9 penalty minutes to kill…

(3) …a hockey shift usually lasts for a minute or two, but our team had to play the entire game with no rest…

(4) …I got really tired…

(5) …during the second period, I was thinking a lot about the delicious Orange Freeze I would be having at Steak And Shake after the game…

(6) …we managed to score 5 goals during the game, but couldn’t quite overcome all the goals the other team scored on us during the monster penalty kill…

(7) …I got a boo boo on my knee…

(8) …my hockey pants are so old the snap rusted and broke off during the game and it scratched my tummy…

(9) …the referees seem to know me by name… I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing…

(10) …any game I can walk away from in one piece is a good game… this was a pretty good game…

Sounds like this hockey game was one for the ages. Is that how that cliche is used? Or is it, one for the books? Especially liked the “thinking about the delicious Orange Freeze after the game…” Priceless.

Doug Jones

are you crazy?! At 10:30 you should be at Steak n Shake drinking the delicious Orange Freeze and laughing at the guys who went to play hockey… at least that’s what I would do…

Don Jones

And by all means… order a side of fries with that Freeze.

Ma.

MMmmm where do you find the time?
