I think this is the part where I get tickled pink.
very nice

We won our league 4 years ago in dramatic fashion. Double elimination playoff, and we were unbeaten, playing a team that should have won the whole thing. We beat them in the first game of the playoff by some form of osmosis (still under criminal investigation - I think our goalie may, in fact, be convicted of robbery) ... when we met in the finals, they beat us in the first game, 4-3. In the last game, our usual goalie couldn't play, so we had to find a sub ... our sub played well, but we still wound up going down 3-0 heading into the third. After storming back and tying the game with 3 minutes left, we got the game winner with something like 21 seconds left in regulation.

It was so exciting - one of the funnest moments I've ever had in hockey. We still have people tell us how fun the game was to watch, and that it was one of the best rec league games they have ever seen.

Best of luck - beer league hockey can be so much fun!
