forgot to mention,,,as I'm going into our locker room for our second game, this big tall guy comes off the ice for the Essex NJ team...I'm looking at him as the team coach comes over to unlock the door to let him in...appears as though he's gotta take a leak...I look again, and its Larry Robinson...yup #4 is playing 50+ Nationals division for Essex NJ. He lives in Plant City so I guess that makes him a yank...that and he's a HOF...hahahahah They were in the other draw so we didn't play them...he still looked damn smooth though..
Well, we got smoked by a couple of teams from minn aaaa soooota. First team we played (Heartland) was captained by a Jensen--not sure of the first name--that was a US olympian..they beat us 5-0, which we were told was a strong effort, since they beat the other teams in the Nationals division like a drum,,,12-0 in one case.
Anyway, the Labatts was cold and we had a good time overall.
I've got a pic and accompnaying item that relates to Ovechkin that is not for public consumption, but you'll find it f ing hilarious...
