Good Monday morning boys and girls! The sun is shining and the boss is out hunting so I get to run the show! Yep, that usually means I am about to piss someone off, and trust me I am working on it!
So, after a busy weekend scouting, I am working on an opinion piece that’s sure to get a lot of people pissed concerning some things I am seeing. I follow up on another great reader tip from our friends in Northern Ontario. Keep em coming boys, hope the moose hunting is going well!
Turns out, we got us some more road kill up in the Thunder Bay Junior Hockey League. Yep, first we had the expansion Smooth Rock Falls Thunder pull the plug on themselves, and now we have the Thunder Bay Wildcats to put in the ground.
So the Wildcats started the season with zero wins and nine losses. Ummmmm yeah, with only 4 goals scored for your team and 83 goals against in 9 games, you should pretty much know your team sucks.
I know there is a joke somewhere in that win and loss record concerning the Pounding those Kitties were taking each night! Ha Ha Ha Pounding Kitties each night! Get it! Ha Ha Ha
So yeah, guess what?! This was another expansion team! I know, they must not read TJHN in Northwestern Ontario. See, but our tipster is from the area so we know that’s not true. So if they read TJHN, they just must be one of these idiots that thought more pay to play expansion is just what the game needed!
Yep, forget the fact that there aren’t enough players to fill Junior A rosters, lets throw some Junior B into the mix. Oh yeah, forget the other fact that the SIJHL Junior A League is pretty much based in Thunder Bay and they only have five teams!!!
Ya might want to wonder why they didn’t add any new teams in the Junior A league yet you added two in the B league and both folded! Another fantastic decision by leadership. Can you hear them in the league meeting when they are making these decisions? “Lets just throw this shit against the wall and see what sticks eh boys!” And then the vote is taken and the only thing anyone has to say is; “Hey dumb ass we’re out of beer! Are we done now?”
Then again, maybe Jackie Moon was vacationing in Thunder Bay this summer and he put together this expansion plan! Yep, the Thunder went out more like a fart, and the Wildcats just got pounded.
