Deuces Were Wild!

Romeoville, IL
January 11, 2013

Attendance: 19

Whites Use The Anvil for Target Practice!
Geno, Tom O and Terry had 2 goals each for the Whites, while Tweedy picked up a pair for the Reds.  The Whites used an unusual tactic as they were shooting at the goalie instead of trying to miss him.  The Anvil came over to the bench after the 2nd period and said, "Five of those seven goals hit me before going in!" The Czar fired a bad angle shot/pass that hit Eddie and went in for the 7th goal. Eddie promised to do better in the third and he did, just allowing one goal while the Reds were mounting 

Roundheads at 63rd and Woodward.

a comeback from a 7-2 score.  Thor kept his scoring streak alive when he worked a give and go with Beak and his son Tweedy.  Thor ended up with an easy tap in at the back door.  Beak picked up another assist when he set up Tweedy's second goal.  Tweedy tried many times to keep his Dad's scoring streak alive, but Tweedy said, " You are being shadowed, even Tommy Z picked off a pass to you." The Whites were protecting their 4-1 Meaningful lead.  Magoo was able to get a 3rd period goal that made it 4-2 Meaningful and 7-4 on the scoreboard. Things got real interesting when Johnny B poked one past the Brain in a goal mouth scramble to cut the deficit to two. V-Man made it 7-6 with a coast to coast rush.  He beat the Brain when he cut in front of the net and flipped one in.  The Whites may have been coasting with their big lead, so TZ scored and put the game out of reach at 8-6.  The Reds added a last minute goal to make it an 8-7 final. I don't remember who scored, but I'll give it to Bill BTW since he played a fine game and gives us calendars.       

Memorable Moments

  • Greg Z is still recovering from his Klinger Krash with the Bookie last week. 
  • Klinger missed with a doctor's excuse for the bug he picked up in Maine. 
  • Thor remembered the name of the Bar in Lake Placid where Klinger had his boots given a yellow tint by the owner's dog.  It was the Ratskeller Bar. (German: Bar or restaurant located in the basement of a city hall)
  • Fred, who usually remembers everything, didn't remember anything except that he flew there and missed the train fun. He did remember getting picked up by our van at the airport.

  • Geno only Remembers waiting for Buffalo Wings in Buffalo.
  • Koss came out in Red and was traded before the puck dropped.  
  • Frank will have pictures from our Lake Placid trip at lunch on Wednesday at 1:00

 (We will need some guests next week)
