I’ve done some stupid things in my life. I mean really really really stupid. But today I might have done the dumbest thing I’ve ever done.
Think about the dumbest thing you’ve ever done and then double it. That’s what I just did.
Let me lay out my stupid act for you. I’m dick deep in this #19in2019 thing. I’m trying to make and play in 19 beer league tournaments in 2019. Aggressive I know but I’ve always been one to shoot my shot. This weekend will my 6th tourney and it is in Las Vegas.
For those counting at home
- PHT in Fort Lauderdale w/ TEAM BLT
- FTD 3 on 3 w/ TEAM BLT
- Anaheim Ducks Throwback Classic w/ TEAM BLT
- Lake Louise Outdoor Classic w/ TEAM BLT
- Boston Draft Tournament
Nonetheless, I’m going about my business and packing for this incredible weekend in Vegas. Booze, Bros, & Beer League Puck… Are you doing anything cooler this weekend? Probably not. I pack my hockey bags and clothes before my wife takes me to airport (she’s a gem eh?). I get to the airport and something is terribly wrong.
You see, we have two vehicles. First world problems I know. I packed my hockey bag and clothes in one of them but I packed my hockey sticks in the other. So here I am sitting at the airport about to board a flight to Vegas to play in a hockey tourney with no sticks. Some of you will say this won’t change my game in any way… to you I say FUCK OFF.
(PS did you see the pic of me using that stick at the top of the blog?)
I usually don’t like to write stories without endings but I just don’t know how this tale will play out.
- Will I find some random sticks to use at the rink?
- Will someone lend me a few?
- Will I have to buy a $300 sticks that isn’t my curve or flex?
- Will I turn to tricking in sin city to get some sticks?
Stay tuned with Nicky No-Sticks to find out.
