Very cool format, but the names are uninspired to say the least. I think serge or someone should be commissioned to come up with better ones.

We have had private discussions on what the names should be..You are dead on...There will be cool names.

Shhhhh. I was hoping John would have to follow 1,000 'bike lane' dudes.

Also, what quote?

Totally irrelevant thing during that TTC day from hell a while back about seeing an empty train bypass a jammed Bloor-Yonge Stn. Reporter reached out asking me to call for a quote, I ignored, he prints my tweet and full name anyways (which I know is fair game). It was mildly out of context and not even really a disparaging tweet, but seeing that TTC are major clients, not what I or my bosses would like to see.

This post is mostly for myself as I look back on this thread and see the progression of my kids hockey careers..

We just got back from a tournament in Los Angeles..This has been a pretty epic year for Adrian's team. There is one more regular season game left and the team is undefeated and have clinched first place in their division. Also this was the third tournament we have gone to and we have managed to win all 3 tournaments.

This tourney was fun.. They did some cool things like player interviews, on ice champagne(apple cider) celebrations..Game and Tourney MVPs...So it was a blast for the kids..While our team is the best in Northern California, the teams from Southern California typically tend to be tougher...They usually have more ice, they are backed by the two NHL teams in the area and tend to have more kids to draw from.

We cruised through the preliminary and semi final rounds with 4 wins and Adrian getting 3 shutouts. The one game being an epic 1-0 battle where he really stood on his head. The finals didnt start off well, as we ran into a tough team. We were down half way through the game at 2-1, but then the boys turned it on and we won 5-3. They gave the tournament MVP to Adrian and it was a great weekend overall.

So there are two more goals left for the team...To win the NorCal(Northern California) Championship and then the State Championship..Currently we would be favored on paper to win Norcal and compete in State, but there is a lot of work to do...This will be probably one of those years in Adrian's minor hockey career that he will look back on and it will be the most successful and fun year he has had...Next year he moves up to Bantam and he has to make the decision how serious he wants to continue his hockey career. He can either stay in Fresno and play at this level, or he moves to a much higher league in San Jose or Southern California. His coaches have said he has the potential to go pretty far and maybe play some good level of College hockey, however he has to put the work in. He has to work hard, and study the game more..Not sure if he is ready for that, or if he wants to do that yet...He is having fun now with his team and what hockey brings him.

His coach played pretty high level hockey as a goalie. He played in the WHL, played for the Canadian National team at U18 and U19 and was the goalie for Canada in the Spengler Cup. He says while he has the talent, he isnt working hard as he needs to , to get to the higher level...Thats what separates the top goalies from the mediocre ones..While I have no visions of Adrian playing pro hockey, and not even Division 1 hockey...If he can play Division 3 and get some sort of a scholarship..It would be a great thing..

True, but Mactavish doesn't get to take credit for Devan's success, nor does Shanahan for Kessel's. And I will continue to be bitter because it's sports and I don't have to be forgiving and understanding with sports :)

How big a deal is this show for you guys every year ?

Otto and I enjoy it. We spend the whole weekend together and have a blast. We don't make a lot of money from it. We only do it for the love of the hobby

Because of doing this we have met a lot of people who we consider good friends.

One thing this series has provided to leaf fans: a positive dialogue regardless of outcome.
-win the series, celebration and rightly so
-lose the series, take solace in the fact you were supposed to lose but acquitted yourself well in doing so, and put a check mark in the 'experience' box

It's like an emotional free roll for the downtrodden and beaten up leaf lifers

That DannyG thought that trophy was real says a lot about why the tournament of failures is named for him posthumously.

Oops. Forgot to update the MDGMT results after the main championship was over. Lost Cause won in 7. An entertaining series.
