Yellow Jackets To Swim With The Fishies

Posted by: Rob Blair on Thu Jan 26th 2017 3:51pm

Fellow Yellow,

Two goals by centerman Andrew "Holly" Shook proved to be one goal short of enough to maintain the Yellow Jackets' undefeated season. The Honey Badgers squeaked out a 6-5 victory over a much better looking Yellow Jackets squad. The boys from the Hive had several chances and near misses as was evident by Murray "Chewy" McLeod's multiple loud wookie-like expressions of frustration.
Up next for the good guys in yellow is a Sunday evening match against the Sharks. This game will feature the season debut of Jamie "Cheese 'n' Crackers" Moore and Brad "Mr. Cindrich" Basigin. As for the rest of you, please let management know if your availability has changed.

Yellow Jackets vs Sharks Sunday September 18th 5:35 @ the Hive

Yellow Jackets: Unbeaten in 2016/17

Posted by: Rob Blair on Thu Jan 26th 2017 3:50pm

Fellow Yellow,

The hockey gods were smiling on each and every member of the Yellow Nation this past Friday night. The opening game of the 2016/17 season was a memorable night that filled the three fans in attendance with fond memories to last a life time.
Some of the highlights included:
-goalie Chris "Double Double" Humeston remembering the beer bag but somehow forgetting his leg pads
-"Iron Horse" John Horstead trying to get a free vasectomy by leaving his athletic protector at home
-Greg "Endless Summer" Hopps' post game intimidation technique of departing the arena shirtless
-an unofficial record being set for most hockey players ironing their jerseys pregame in a locker room
-the first playing of the national anthem before a Yellow Jackets' game
-the mayor of White Rock purposely becoming the first dignitary in attendance for a Yellow Jacket game
-a possible first face off win for Russell - captured and immortalized on film (please see attachment for a second look at Russell's locks flowing majestically during the official photo opp)
-Denton "Wrinkles" Muir crashing the crease from the point with enough authority to score his first goal of the season, yet with not enough force to straighten the creases in his jersey
-Russell and a bunch of other guys scoring
-a convincing and sound 7-3 victory - great team effort to kick off the season

Next game for the Yellow Jackets is set for Tuesday night at the popular time of 10:30 pm. Please remind management of your availability.

Dignitaries in Attendance for Yellow Jackets' Season Opener

Posted by: Rob Blair on Thu Jan 26th 2017 3:49pm

Fellow Yellow,

The moment that the fans have been waiting for...
The moment that beer league hacks have been waiting all summer for...
The moment when teammates cringe as they discover that their fellow teammates have not washed their gear since last season...
The moment that the White Rock mayor has had circled on his calendar in anticipation for the past few months...
This moment will finally arrive as the 2016/17 season opening game of the WRSHL is finally almost upon us. As hockey fans all over the peninsula are aware, this Friday marks the debut match of the 20th anniversary of the league.

The season opens with a match of the titans as the Mighty Yellow Machine will face off against Bier Bauche in a rematch of last season's basement division quarter finals. As you may recall, the Yellow Jackets stomped all over the hopes and dreams of the double Bs and hope to repeat that performance again.

As for the mayor, yes, he will be in attendance for a ceremonial puck drop, complete with member(s) of the press. The league has asked us to be dressed and on the bench early for the ceremony and photo.

Yellow Jackets vs Bier Bauche Friday September 9th 9:15pm at The Hive

Please advise Management of your availability asap.
