Well, The Badgers still know how to end a hockey season, and last night was the conclusion of Season #4.
Last night was also the first annual –“Throwback Thursday” aka “Nate Beams Night” aka “Bauer Turbo Blowout” – and it was an excellent time.
There were old sticks, old pads, old skates, an old high school hockey coat and of course plenty of old guys.
Stone Wall Faulkner, fresh off a plane from the motherland (Ireland), came to the rink with the intentions of letting everyone on earth know why he has the nickname that he does.
Good Lord, Stonewall. To say you played out of your mind last night would not be an overstatement.
The Commish took to the ice with his molded plastic, Bauer Turbo’s.
They looked great.
They felt great. (no)
And they turned on a dime.
Well, they turned on a dime a couple times. And then about 5 minutes into the game, they decided that turning wasn’t their best attribute.
Ever see a skate explode? You have if you were at the game last night.
Both of them at the same time.
You’re not supposed to be able to see the black booty, that you’re seeing.
It is supposed to be covered by that sleek gray and black plastic.
Good times, and thanks to LiveBarn, we’ll be downloading the clip for everyone to enjoy.
Thanks once again for a great season, boys.
At the heart and soul of the HBHL is a great group of guys.
Thanks to all the full-timers and subs who made it such a blast.
And special thanks to:
Mad Mike Luciano
Steven “Stripper Pole” Croll
Eric S”tone Wall” Faulkner
And last but not least, our Main Man in Stripes – Derek Camarota.
Without you guys, our games and our season wouldn’t be the same.
