On another beautiful Monday morning, while manning the TJHN email box, I am starting to get some real interesting stuff kids!
Oh hell yeah, the tidal wave of teams going under is just around the corner. How do I know? Well, when team main camps are now getting “cancelled” or “postponed” it reminds me of a saying; “Houston we got a problem!”
So yeah, I was just sitting around having my tenth cup of coffee, and all of a sudden emails started popping up in the in box. Now we get a lot of emails, but Mondays are usually slower days for those in August because everyone is either returning from a camp, or resting from camp over the weekend.
So this mornings activity was just a little surprising.
Hmmmmmm, I wonder why teams would be cancelling and postponing camps at this time of year. August is prime time for finalizing your roster if you’re a head coach. I mean after all the season starts in just a few weeks. Hell some teams start pre season in two weeks.
I wonder if it could have anything to do with the idiotic expansion of pay to play hockey? I bet those franchise expansion checks have been cashed though.
So, if you are one of those players who got an email saying the camp was cancelled or postponed, I would love to hear from you. If your one of those unfortunate players or parents that already gave one of these teams who cancelled or postponed a down payment on the season, I would really love to hear from you.
I wonder if camp fee refunds have been offered or made? I wonder if players were told those fees would just apply to their team fee? I wonder if the Fox Sports glowing puck will make a comeback? I wonder if Pro Wrestling is real?!?!!! Ha Ha Ha
Lets start picking these suckers off now. No sense in waiting until they blame it on someone else.
You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org Or simply get out your copy of “The Good Old Hockey Game” and play it backwards and I will appear in your living room. Kind of like the State Farm insurance guy. Ha Ha Ha
