But when he tells his grand kids, he will have deked the entire team, and then roofed it.
When I tell my grandkids? Hell, I'm going all out. I'm going to say that the final score was 9-6 but my team won, and it was my goal that was the GWG, and after the game Sidney Crosby, who was just hanging out in Wichita, KS for no reason, made it a point to come up to me after the game and tell me that I inspire him And that he has already talked to Commissioner Bettman and I'm getting my name engraved on the Stanley Cup...but sadly the Ring that has my name engraved was burned in an accidental fire after the winner of the 2018 SCF burned their city to the ground in a Celebration Riot.
So I've been playing in a Roller Hockey league, my first try at any type of organized Hockey ever. I've missed the last 2 weeks with the crap in my abdomen, so I played this past Sunday.
I scored my FIRST EVER GOAL!!
I'm essentially one of those "useless players", I'm on the team because the Captain is the Brother-In-Law of my best friend, and he likes me enough, and he needed an extra body.
I play quite a bit, because it's standard 4-on-4 and we have 7 people on our team, so we're rotating quite a bit.
But it's also modified rules. There's no offsides or icing or anything like that. And there's also no body checking. Play can get a little physical, but you can't body check anyone.
During the game, within the first 30 seconds though, I accidentally collided with a guy on the other team. I mean we laid each other out. The puck was sent into the offensive zone deep, and I was turning around to go in and get it, and did have my head down a bit (I know, I know...) and the guy had his head turned around seeing where his puck carrier was going to take it, when I looked up and he turned around we collided...and it was BAD. We both dropped each other like a ton of bricks.
I was worried I had suffered a minor concussion because I had a terrible, splitting headache for the rest of the game. (everything's fine now).
And then about 4 min later, we were down 2-1 and somehow the puck ended up in front of the goalie, not far out of my reach, and I gathered it and took a shot, unfortunately I didn't get a lot of it, but I got enough because it got through and it was awesome! A truly great feeling. I never thought I'd get on the scoresheet ever, but I did in my 3rd game!
Unfortunately we lost the game though, 9-6.
Man I miss playing hockey... sadly with my injuries I can't anymore.
