Another day, another degenerate playing beer league hockey.
So in this clip, it looks like we have a little battle going on in front of the net. As a forward it’s always kind of fun to get in the crease to let the goalie know you’re there. If you’re playing beer league, there’s a 50/50 shot that your stomach is full on taco bell and a few beers so it’s a vet move to try and sneak a fart in right there. They generally smell like big foots dick and you can always blame it on someone else, am I right? Now, some might think that’s crossing the line, but in my opinion I think swinging your stick like your Pete Alonso might be far more aggressive that a 15-20 second fart.
For the life of me, I don’t know how someone can justify swinging their stick like a baseball bat towards another hockey player- goalie gear or not. I’m all for face washes and some chirping but using your stick as a weapon just inexcusable. The last thing you want to do is go to work the next day and explain to HR that the reason your entire face is black and blue is because some neanderthal decided to try and chop your head off.
How would Department of Player Safety handle this? Well a $5,000 fine to the average NHL salary ($2,554,463) in comparison to someone making $50,000 a year equates to a $97 fine. Seems a little crazy, no?
