Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Posted by: Brett Birch on Mon Dec 20th 2010 3:07pm

Hey there guys and gals. I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and the happiest of New Years to you and your family! Stay safe and enjoy this holiday season!

First game back after the break is a doozy so either eat all that dessert and hit the treadmil your wife bought for you (for some unknown reason!) or pass on the extra ladel of gravy and simply watch as much football as possible!

One thing I strongly urge though, is copious amounts of Rum & Eggnog, but be sure to get that ride home in a cab, Red Nose, bus or walk that Turkey Dinner off!

Cheers to one and all!!!

Wow you guys! Talk about gelling and coming together as a team! We have a roster full of contributors on this team and let me tell you, it has been sooooooooo entertaining lately watching you guys play hockey! CHEERS! Last game of the first half is coming up this Saturday already can you believe it? Looks like The Velvet Hammers will be taken seriously in the second half, and from now on in the UMHL. You've all earned your stripes :-). See you at the rink!

HUGE GAMES COMING UP FOR THE VH CREW!!!

Posted by: Brett Birch on Wed Dec 01st 2010 12:41pm

Hey all! As luck would have it, our schedule is actually getting more difficult if you can believe that! Last game was Team Ramrod, next game is Rockpile (ahead of us in standings by 2 pts with a huge game coming up on Friday) then we play the Senior Citizens Sunday night at 11:00pm. They are in 3rd place, 4 points ahead of us. I know it is a Beer League and we are having a lot of fun, but if we want to stay anywhere near the middle to upper portion of the pack, we gotta come outta this weekend smelling like roses instead of fecal matter... Some of you (like me) smell an awful lot like pooh already, so that is not a far stretch...

Our team has come a LOOOONG way from last year. We are a great group of guys with a much improved skill level! Let's stay outta the box, play clean and be sound in our own zone. As mentioned before to everyone by yours truly, not all of us are going to light it up eery game, but for some of us, this isn't our style. We are tenacious checkers, face-off specialists, penalty killers extrodinaire, defensive-minded calalysts. Let's play our role to the best of our ability and JUMP IN when our chance arrives. I know Stumpy is gonna be lights out as he has been all season. Let's help him out with keeping the shots to the outside and from long range. They will NOT score from there.

Your "A" game is what I expect from myself and is what you all expect from yourselves. If we have that, we will be loading up the "W" column this weekend boys!

Nice work on the Grey Cuy tix boys and girls. I am looking forward to Grand Forks this year even more than last! BUT, there are about 14 more games here first.

Lorne, bring some beer this weekend you tight ass!!! (reg told me the last part...) "Shhhhhh......"

Cheers mates!
