Generals Back On TOP!

What can be said about this amazing finals….well, there once was a bald dominatrix named Joe, he had won three titles in a row. On the way to his fourth he met a foe named Captain Cody aka the OG Fat prick. Captain Cody slammed the door shut on Joe’s hopes of making it four thus claiming the title for his own.


Three Peat Joe



It was a hell of a season with many ups and downs for many of the HL teams. Holman, playing in his last season as Captain of the Green Machine ECO dominated the season 8-1-1 only to fall to eventual three-peat champions LIUNA Joe in the Semifinals.

Season Notables:

The Kiwi Vince Mitalas held steady with a stellar 3.67 GAA

Jeff Baxter and Tristan Balint shared points like they share shower towels with 31 a piece on the season.

Hockey Hearts Shine!

I’m writing this as a personal post of how proud I am to be associated with this league and all of it’s members. Most of us may be old and slow or young and slow but when the time presents itself, you all shine your hockey hearts bright. After another successful Hockeylife Annual Charity Golf Classic, we were able to raise our biggest total ever at $1340!! This money will go directly to the family of Brayden to help pay for any related costs, medical supplies and therapies not covered under our health care system. As a Father, like many others in this league your gestures were heart warming; whether it was through donating of items for the auction/raffle or donating money directly to the cause, you all played a big part in the success of this years goals and the future of this young boy. It’s true what they say, hockey players do have the biggest hearts.

Captain Bojangles does it again!!! STS CHAMPS SPRING 2016

It was another season to remember as underdogs the green machine ECO faced off against the big smoke STS in the Moosehead Cup Spring Finals 2016. The Big Smoke started off hot taking and early and dominant 3-0 lead. With Captain Cody Bojangles quoted on the bench saying “fuck ya I’m proud of my team we each had a six pack and a bowl of Marshall’s pasta before the game so the fact we can even move is amazing.”

With the final all but wrapped up the Green Machine were able to find another gear led by Captain John Tigerbeer and pulled back two quick goals to make it a close 3-2 game. When asked about his team’s heart and grit on the bench Tigerbeer said “I might be old but these boys have grit to them, like grizzled vets, like Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revanant. Win or lose these boys deserve an Oscar and a cold PBR.”

The game was on the line, the prize of taking reflected nude selfies in the Moosehead Cup was within each team’s grasp. The Big Smoke and Cap’n Bojangles quickly stoked the fire and blew 2 more goals along with an empty netter to take all the steam out of The Green Machine and make the final score 6-2.

After the win, league MVP Jeff “played well” Baxter was spotted celebrating at a local McDonalds devouring McGangBangs and Rootbeer. Perhaps the secret diet to elite play?

A classic final between two classic teams and their captains.
