Why is this the best BLT in the world?

To borrow a quote from Jeff Daniels from the Newsroom. Is my beer league, the best beer league team in the world? No its not, we are in the lowest division, always short on money and beer, inconsistant, complacent, and didn’t win a single game our first season together. That being said I haven’t played for many teams in my short hockey career but this one has been the most fun. Winning is fun, everyone knows that, but to me hockey isn’t about the game itself. It’s about the players, its about the bonding and its about fun. When I play games, I could care less what the outcome is because every game is fun. I have a love not only for the game, but my teammates. We have a group text going on and are always ripping and teasing each other. its like a big brotherhood. There is nothing more terrifying and exciting than a notification from the group. You never know who’s next on the chopping block. As captain I get to recruit players. I don’t look for guys who can score a lot of goals, or who can shut down offenses, I look for guys who I’d want to sit across from in the locker room and bond over a post game beer. A guy who can actually score is a bonus. So are we the best beer league team? no, but we do have the most fun. Lets Go Beers!

Why we deserve to win the Westy?

Why do we deserve to win the Westy? I think the Milwaukee Beers are the essence of beer league hockey. No pun intended. I love watching shows like Benders because the whole team can all relate to it. Every team has the guys who shows up 5 minutes before games, the guy who’s the worst on the team but has top end gear, the guy who’s completely whipped by his gf who has to tie his skates, the guy who drinks before, during and after the game and so on. This is the essence of what a beer league team should be. A group of guys who would unlikely be together in normal circumstances, but on the ice we are all the same. We got accountants, IT guys, pizza guys, skate shop workers, personal trainers, insurance adjusters, airplane mechanics and more but once those Beers jerseys come on, we are all Beers, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. On the ice we are all benders, chirpers, slashers, fighters, goal scorers and we would be honored to win such a prestigious award. So why do we deserve the Westy? Because we are beer league hockey, and we may not be the winningest team, but we definitely have the most fun.
