Its another twofer day here on The Death Pool. It was just over two years ago when TJHN published “Nothing Good Happens After Midnight”.
That story got a pretty good response in our email boxes from parents, and even young players. Yep, well apparently some people missed the story. Ummmmm well maybe some people were so busy with going to class at U-Mass Amherst that they just didn’t have the time.
News flash all you players who aspire to play NCAA hockey. You will be given codes of conduct. You will be given team rules. You might just want to take the time to read them and actually follow them for 48 months. Yep, its just 48 months that you have to play NCAA hockey, and you might not want to waste any of that time sitting in the stands!
Lets give a warm welcome to The Death Pool new heads of class for stupidity in school for 2015.
Seniors Shane Walsh and Ben Gallacher, sophomore Goaltender Henry Dill, and U-Mass alumni player Evan Stack. Way to keep that good old college spirit Evan!
Ummmmmm yeah, little message to Ben Gallacher, the Florida Panthers picked you in the fourth round of the Draft five years ago. Not only is the arrest stupid, but getting caught with a counterfeit $100 bill in your wallet might not look so good either. You might have just hurt your chances a little bit with this one buddy.
Henry Dill was allegedly punching a police cruiser for an unknown reason. Ummmmm yeah, last time I watched a game there Henry, a goaltender needs to use his hands just a little bit. Totally good decision to start punching anything let alone a cop car!
UMass Athletics issued a statement on the arrests, saying “We’re aware of the situation and we’re handling internally. We won’t comment further.”
See, the Cops have discretion in these types of cases to either give a warning or a citation, but they believed the situation was severe enough to warrant arrest. And ummmmm yeah, when its a Sunday morning at 1:15 and five cop cars arrive on the scene, someone is getting in some trouble.
So kids, when you find yourself at a party after midnight with more than 100 people, you might just want to rethink sticking around. You know, just in case the cops show up because of the loud noise or something. The fines you may pay on Monday morning, like these boys did, might just make it a pretty expensive party in more ways than you ever thought.
