Another successful Pond Hockey Classic is in the books. Somehow the organizers were able to pull off a miracle, given the temperatures leading up to the event.
At the end of the day, The Park Street Badgers defeated the Original Badgers and each team now has a 1-1 record against each other at the PHC.
This years event welcomed the following new players.
- Aaron Callaway – Aaron donned a Hanson Brother type wig (or a Cindy Crawford wig) during the Badger match. Either way it was a distraction to the OB’s. Don’t believe me? Take a look at the video below and tell me you don’t think he’s hot.
- Ed Hunter – Ed played like he was on speed. Ed’s new nickname is Fast Eddie. Ed probably should’ve taken a shift or two off during the game. (It’s not all about you Ed). And also, Ed’s not welcome on Thursday nights any more.
- John Gilmartin – Um, let’s see here. What can I say about #24. He was there. I can confirm that. Early quotes from #24 included “you used to do this with just 6 players?” and “this is a lot more work than I thought it was going to be.” To his credit, he put the pedal down in the other facet of the tournament. Great having you up #24. Next time, don’t pass the pace car.
- Scott Rickards – Better late than never. #23 had to skip the first two games due to a wake. I tried to convince him to skip the wake b/c the deceased would never know if he showed up or not, but he wasn’t buying it. We could’ve used him in our games but it’s not likely he would’ve made a difference. (yeah, right). We had already crowned Scott the team’s MVP on Friday morning (before we played a single game) b/c he arranged to pick up TBone’s jersey in Andover, and a bottle of Tuaca (the team’s juice). And then, he stayed up for 2 whole nights. Nice work #23.
Here’s a video of the weekend, and some pictures.
