So some of you would know that I’ve been managing the Wasps Premier Alliance Men’s hockey team for 2010.
We have our brownlows coming up, and one of the awards is the Tough Guy Award.
Basically in one of our matches, there was a stick check between one of our players BJ2 and a Melville defender.
Basically it ended up in the Melville’s players stick snapping in two on impacts with BJ2’s stick, and both pieces went soaring through the air at head height through the Wasps attacking circle, one half narrowly missing our own wing, Scoobs’ head. It actually skimmed the top of him.
We had to hear from weeks on end from Scoobs who narrowly missed death.
Two weeks later, we had a match at the same venue, and we found one of the pieces of the destructed stick lying on the side of the field.
Now this was a very expensive and impressive stick.
So we kept this half as a reminder, and I have been asked to mount it as a trophy to be awarded to BJ2 for his destructive efforts.
Here is my masterpiece
PS. The inside of composite hockey sticks are REALLY FREAKING cool!!
