Relics are up and running.... Strong!
2nd week saw ex-Whaler Lanky score a hat trick! Yup, who’s ya daddy now!
And, for the second game in a row, Jacobson has had a penalty shot AND HAS YET TO SCORE!. Yikes, is there a slower league?
Nonetheless, the Relics are the place to be.
Our 2 lady refs are doing Great, the lady scorekeeper is Great. Who said Hockey couldn’t be that much fun again?!!!
Special thanks for their help goes out to the King and Fire Marshall Bill... they really helped get this thing going.
Now for some real hockey... well just a bit.
Legends season has taken off as well. We see the pre-season favorite Whalers kicking some real ass in their first 3 games. The Champion Stingers are not far behind in the standings, but light years away comparing apples and apples. Should be a good game whenever they meet.
The Sharks and Crusaders are filling out the middle of the pack while the Toros and Stingers are pulling up the rear.
Still too early to tell what the hell is going to happen.
This past week we saw the Whalers spank the Toros 5-1. Wasn’t even close. We saw Chucky score 2 unassisted goals. Seems the Whales are prepping early for their run for the Championship.
The Crusaders and Sharks skated to a 1-1 tie, but that wasn’t where the excitement was... seems the game was a bit chippy as there were a shitload of physical penalties... even Burkey got a slashing penalty! Geez....
Lastly, the Saints and the Stingers played the West Coast game and the Stingers pulled this one out 3-1. Nothing worth noting but that Hacksaw picked up another one of his All Time League Leading penalties.
Lets pause for a moment and focus on what is really going on... RelicsHockey.com
The RELICS are alive and well in the world of hockey. Yup, on September 7th at 5:30 pm the newly formed Relics Hockey League will begin. And to make things even better, the owners have secured Boston Bruins’ own RENE RANCOURT to sing the US National Anthem! But wait, that’s not all!!!!!.... they have also secured one of the original Big Bad Bruins of the 70’s DEREK SANDERSON to be on hand to drop the first puck!
Yup, this league will now be the place to be!
Stop by at the rink on September 7th at 5:00 or so to meet and greet RENE and DEREK. Don’t forget to bring your cameras and you can also stick around to see a great hockey game afterwards!

Let the Games Begin!
The Winter season has begun... and already there are shocking results!
The pre-season favorites Sharks/Mantas/Kings-Old-Team got shallacked by the new and improved Saints, 5-2. It wasn’t even that close.
Before I begin, I want to point out a very interesting and noteworthy fact... Mr. “I got traded 14 times before the season” Krall was the only shining star as he got traded back to the Sharks and was instrumental in both points the Sharks put up on the board with a goal and assist. Hmmm, I guess he won’t be going anywhere soon, eh?
Now back to the game. The Saints, missing their Captain Roachy who was away on some honeymoon or something, got off fast in this one and just never looked back. Now, some can say that they pounced on the Sharks and some can say that the Sharks goalie sucked, but we will leave it up to your own interpretation... Dr. Who didn’t turn up for this game in net is our take.
Oh, a funny thing happened after the final Saints goal... let me play this out for you (and Flower Boy... let me know if I have this rght)... I guess the final goal was Dr. Who’s fault.... (who knows really... isn’t this league about having fun and not really about the fact that some of us suck? Anyway, on the ensuing faceoff The Commish won the faceoff (friggin’ doesn’t he always) go the puck back to Mini-Me, aka Sponge Bob Square Pants, who in turn turned around and shot at his own goalie!!!!! Yup! We all thought this was not only weird but well, weird. WTF?
It seems that Sponge Bob Square Pants was pissed off that Dr. Who let in another goal... but really did he?, or was it the shoddy defense of SBSP? (sorry, just tired of typing Sponge Bob Square Pants). Nonetheless, the players and fans AND refs were all in shock. Seems SBSP is taking the Legends league a bit too serious right now... wonder if he is ready for the Relics? Do we have another “Beeber” on our hands? We’ll see as the season plays out!
Anyway, the Saints looked good and the Sharks didn’t.
Can’t wait for the other games to start!
