The Conversation: link to the best part
Vince, we've lost 6 games in a row, we are not enjoying the game.
I know how you feel...
Black team victory tomorrow... Joes. Gonna score too
[To Cory] You're going to have to bounce your fourth goal off someone, 'cause you're thirty-something. Of course if you try to bounce one off him and miss... it's only one pitcher of beer.
Jack makes up rules as he loses. Lol. Dark victory. WOOHOO
Don't you love the intensity!!!! Best part always is the bullshit at the Prescott. Don't worry White, in the words of that famous African American spiritual " we shall overcome"
[To Etch] Lots of talk about a decades rule: You can’t score more goals in a game than the decades of your age. A player in his thirties may score three goals only. After that he has to bounce one in off Vinnie, Joe or equivalent, or buy a pitcher at the Prescott if the rule is broken. You, on the other hand, Dave, may score six, and it would be our pleasure to see that. Oh, and: No cutting to the net from the corner.
RGR all that Al!! Especially the Prescott part. Hang in there White. Al shall return!
Dark victory. I like that Sonny!
Whatever happened to impartiality by the leader!!!!!!
In the words of Al Emond: “I read the book …the Power of Positive Thinking…twice…..it doesn’t work!” Al is down South…..working on his new “overcomb” hairstyle with Nathan…..They are putting together a more cohesive White Team Strategy…..which may include passing and positional play…..we think….
Hardly have time to think about hockey what with all the tennis, golf, biking, beaching/shelling, cocktail hour….etc. Al will sort it out when he gets back, at least try to get the teams evened up. Sounds like the ice is tilted a bit to the North right now.
Frank, Have a bloody mojito and chill out!!
Mainly drinking Sol Nate. Final is April 13th. Party venue yet to be determined. See everyone early April. ... Dark Victory!!
Assuming games will be booked up to the party, the final seven would be March 23, 27, 30, April 3, 6, 10, and 13, party day. Sound right?
Congratulations to the White Team…….I am sure that Matty’s exceptional passing skills, positional play and overall playmaking helped reconfigure the White approach to the game…..made it more fun …..a good thing…..and Al Emond will reinforce these principles upon his return…..(I checked all of this through Howie Meeker)……there.
Leaving 85F, beautiful condo overlooking the water, cheap happy hours and wonderful sights on the beach for -20c and smelly dressing rooms! Can't wait.
[To Al] Stay longer. Jack makes up rules. Al not here crying about dark to strong so let stack white. Games have been even but white still cries. I want to see the rule book. Lol
Note to the White Team : The trade deadline is long past. Matty remains Black for the remainder of the season.
Sonny,you won 6 in a row, something not seen since 2004/05, when guess who, Black won 6 in a row, plus you have the President on your side. Do you actually see my tears through my helmet!!! Vince always falls for that!!! Isn't this great. Just encourages us to drink more at the Prescott! See you on the ice Monday.
[To Frank] Corey and Matty on the same side might seem a little unbalanced, just for your consideration!!!
I spoke to Ward Cornell, Howie Meeker and Danny Gallivan this afternoon.They look forward to the return of Al Emond to the White Team…..his exceptional game situation passing skills, positional play and teamwork (no puck hogging)….make him stand out.
Contrary to D.N’s note, kicking me off the Island …. I am starting to think about dry land training in preparation for games on 10 and 13 April. Please keep me on the roster.
Note to teams …
Looks like Black has won 5 of the previous 6 …

2015-16 Best of last 5 Black 2-1-2
2012-2013 was a good year!
Now the world can see what White is up against year after year. The President,the official stats keeper, official team maker..... Has not stopped White from winning last 6 years. What a group.
[To Al] Wow. I want what your on...
I'm writing a book?... Is this called "trash talk"!!!!
Alternatively....Al's book could be entitled 'The Cult of White'......the journey of a young Man from Quebec City who mistakenly embraced the NDP but saved himself from harm by hanging out with the legendary White Team......it was not easy to be Al.....
[To Al] How did you know about the book?? All started back in 1977 when a young Mike Poulton invited me to play with his group. Arrived at Cumberland arena and was told I would be White, thus began a 40 year White career. Volume 1 of 5 out soon. Sonny will get the first autographed copy.
[To Al] Sweet
Call it “Sonny’s ‘white’ Dream”! It’s one of his favourite songs!
I guess Al's new book will be written in Black and White...sorry White and Black.
8-7 Black despite Al's return, or because of it.
Rule 6) Winning:
Frank ... the final word
Note: As is similar in some tournaments ... the challenger must follow the rules and beat the incumbent to secure victory..
Jack (The Tripper)
Now that Black has won the Final Seven playoffs, I'll just open another beer. "Yes" to getting the food. Don't F with tradition.
