You're not a sandbagger, you're what we call a Pink Lung, meaning:

1. Between the ages of 18-24

2. Played at least one year of Jr. hockey (Major Jr., Jr. A, or Jr. B)

3. Good speed, good stamina, hard shot, average hands

4. Was never drafted out of Jr. (see #3, average hands)

5. Pink lungs (non-abused by 10+ years of smoking)


Sandbagging does not mean being an above average player for the division. As some must be below average, some are above. Sandbagging means being able to do what you want, whenever you want. Sandbagging would be like a certain ex-first round draft pick with 10+ years in the NHL, a few years in Europe, playing B Division hockey in Toronto last winter and potting 8 goals in a game by the middle of the second period. Sandbagging is when 2/3's of an A Division team also sign up with some house league buddies for D Division so they can rack up three or four points each per game (seen it done). Sandbagging means unless I pull a Bobby Clarke to your Kharlamov ankle, there's nothing I can do to stop you. If you can't carry a team every game out, you're not sandbagging.
