Coats Win Again

HoustonTexans

The Houston Texans road into town and almost beat our beloved Indinaplis Coats again… almost. They have almost beat the Coats here for the last seven years.

YEEEE HAAAAAAAAAA! And the Dallas Plowboys snatched another victory out of the jaws of defeat… The only consistant part of their game is inconsistancy.

Dennis Jones

…that was quite the dogfight they had there in Philly…

Jeff

Yes it was, but when you watch them there is never a point you can turn the channel because you KNOW they will win. Last time I did that,, They lost. Go Figure. By the way where is the little guys Shootin Iron?

Nik

That was sooo great, Eagles didn’t have any time outs left!!!

Jeff

Dennis, Im embarrassed, Dog Fight, Michael Vick.. That was a great pitch and I missed it.. Sorry.

Dennis Jones

…woo …a crazy day. …right after posting this I ended up driving down to Indianapolis for a day of miscellaneous stuff…

…Jeff, I did a job that needed a great big word with a little tiny cowboy riding on it, so I did the word and the cowboy separately, and then put them together in Photoshop… this is the cowboy part of that and the publisher for this particular project would not have wanted a shiny pair of six shooters on his hips, so, there’s your answer…

…by the way… if you look real close, you might even see a little bit of a resemblance to a fabulous Rangers hockey jersey from way back when…

Jeff

I see it….I still have one just no way to put a picture up.. That is a great Jersey.

Yup thats the crazy little High Stickin Rascal…. That was one seriously sponsored team.

Jeff

Was that Peters Jersey or yours??

Dennis Jones

…that ones mine… hey, I don’t think you ever saw the goalie helmet I did for that jersey… give me a second and I’ll load a picture of it up here for you…

…the helmets a little beat up now… I played goal in a men’s league in Fort Wayne when I first moved up here and would occasionally show up in my Ranger jersey and helmet for practice…

…I kinda quit doing that because it seemed to be way too much fun for the guys to aim at my head when the fancy helmet was on…

Jeff

It’s called shot placement practice…LOL Dont take it personal.. Great Helmet!

Nik

That is really cool helmet!!!

Olympic Hockey Sunday

March 1, 2010

HockeySunday1HockeySunday2HockeySunday3

…ok, so the youth minister at my church says this Sunday the youth Sunday School lesson is on Ephesians 6 so Dennis why don’t you wear all your goaltender stuff and we’ll let the kids shoot at you and we’ll compare the goaltender gear to the armor of God and have a really good object lesson with it so I say ok and for the grand finale he will throw a hockey puck at me but it will bounce off harmlessly because I’m wearing my “armor” so we get the “wear the armor of God” point into the lesson and he takes the puck while standing about 7 feet away and slings it at me with a baseball windup and I’m thinking he’s going to throw at my chest or legs where I obviously have the most padding but he throws at my head instead and in all my years of playing hockey I have never taken a harder blow to the head than that as evidenced by the fact that it took a chunk out of the cage and crushed the padded goaltender helmet into my nose and cut it so that as I was talking to the kids about how crazy a person would have to be to do something like that without the “helmet of salvation” on blood was trickling down my nose and I’m not really sure if they got the point we were trying to make but I’m pretty sure they will never forget Olympic Hockey Sunday…

The “Ripleys” Guy

No doubt, your reward will be in heaven for that sacrifice! Is there any way to get a re-enactment for YouTube?

Doug Jones

That settles it… I’m sticking with curling…

Jeff

Bad move Doug, those rocks weigh in at like 30 something pounds. I’m speechless Dennis, I had to explain to Peggy why I wet my pants!!!

Doug Jones

I know for a fact that no youth minister is able to pick up a 30 pound stone… so I’m safe…

Don Jones

Object lessons are always better when blood is involved….

Dennis Jones

…there goes Mr. Doug trying to stir up trouble for me on my page again… I get into plenty all by myself, I don’t need any help thank you very much…

Nik

Thats by far the coolest hockey helmet in the world,now you need a football helmet like that

Dennis Jones

…Don, your comment reminded me of the time I slammed my arm through a plate glass window and almost cut it in off and as they were sewing me back together at the doctors office Doug turned green and started sliding down the wall and someone had to catch him… blood is always an attention grabber…

Jeff

Famous last words, “I don’t need a Helmet, We’re just doing some light warm up.” 8 stitches later, my hats dont fit to good anymore.

Dennis Jones

…Jeff, I would like for you to start a blog and just tell your old goaltender stories on it… you had some doozies I recall…

Jeff

You have the winner…I have NEVER had an open wound in church. I am sorry, I just chuckle like an idiot every time I think about it.

Jeff

“I’m just Reffin a kids game, what do I need a cup for?”

Don Jones

I found myself looking at these pictures and softly humming “Power in the Blood.”
