Why is this the best BLT in the world?

Our team doesn’t take itself too seriously. Many of us hadn’t played much hockey before the team got together, with our second top scorer needing to buy pads before the first game! We have an engineer, a comedian, an attorney, a bar manager, a journalist, an architect, a banker, a shrink, an urban planner, and a dude who sells land surveying equipment among others, and our ages span two decades! We didn’t know each other at all before we played together, and now we can’t imagine going a whole week without hitting the ice (and the bar) together. Because we get along so well we’ve all become better hockey players and have gone from strangers to friends, and came second in the league in our first season!

Why we deserve to win the Westy?

Even though we’re bunch of guys who play beer league hockey, we tend to run our team like an NHL team would, but with a lot fun and more beers. We have Twitter account (@DiddliesChi), in which we live tweet during games from, so that our adoring fans can follow along. We interview the players, and hold practices both on ice and at the bar frequently. We use Bench app to coordinate team functions (mostly at the bar). After each game, we give a framed photo of former Blackhawks and Ducks player Sheldon Brookbank to the player on our team who had the most hilarious thing happen on the ice to them. They have to keep it until the next game and feel his judging eyes stare through their soul… Its awful.

Basically I think we are the epitome of what a hockey team should be. A bunch of guys that are very different on paper, but our love of hockey brought us all together. Go Diddlies!
