This week previous The Bladezillas fought the Mad Ferrets. Up early by three goals the Ferrets came back, goal by goal, to tie the game at four. The game left the team shaken and afraid for the future of this once glorious franchise. Numerous members of this ageless group took to reporters to speechify and rally their comrades.
We caught up to Dewey Van Hussen on the bench, between exhausting shifts, as the Mad Ferrets came back from a three goal deficit to tie the game at four to four:
This speech, however much it may have drove the Bladezillas onward for the final 20, did not change the outcome of the day. Following the game forward Justin Doyle had this to say to those attending the non-win:
Finally, we caught up to William Fraser after the game:
I could not have blamed you for being the first to lose heart if I, your captain, had not shared in your exhausting efforts on defense and your many blocked shots and endless back-checking; you and I, gentlemen, have shared the labour and shared the danger, and the rewards will be for us all. The offensive zone shall soon belong to you; from your ranks the future stars of Bladezillas shall be chosen; already the greater part of its treasure passes into your hands, and when all Division 10 is overrun, then indeed I will go further than the mere satisfaction of our play-off ambitions: the utmost hopes of girlfriends, parents and merchandising teams which each one of you cherishes will be far surpassed, and whoever wishes to return home will be allowed to go, either with me or without me. I will make those who stay the envy of those who return.
With their spirits lightened and hope renewed the team looks forward to getting back to their winning tradition on Oct 12 against the StoneCutters. We caugh tup with a turkey to see how it believed the Bladezillas chances looked this holiday weekend:
Right you are, turkey. And god bless.
