Thundercats 10 – Bz 4

New teams are a joy to recap games for. By “joy” I of course mean “unrelenting, systemic anger and frustration.” Who are these people and what do they do? They score goals, apparently. Hooray, Burnaby.   The upside, of course, is that I have to be creative if I want to blog Bz games (I…

2016 Award Predictions

Yes! It is that time of year again, the only thing any of you play for anymore – awards season! Another Winter season has come and gone. The ballots have been submitted, the envelopes are sealed in wax (or will be – clocks, who are they to tell us we are so far behind?) and…

Bz 4 – Blades Of Steel 2

Another spring league, another rink! The dofense is shining, the opponents are chirping.  Is that… Yes, I do believe that is jasmine body wash you smell lingering in the locker room. Truly, Spring is in the air. To ring in the new season and add a little nostalgia (back when I was young we had…

The First War

They were few – some thirteen of them ranked upon the icy field – but in their breasts beat the hearts of many. Beneath the red-black banners of the Dragon Standard the Bladezillas gazed across the frozen lake. No longer would they suffer the shame and fear of seasons past. No longer would they suffer themselves to be besieged. Distant…

Vikings 2 – Bz 1

Its the audio-visualarama, auditorumptious, heart poundiferous return of the Bz blog! There is some ironic music for you all to listen to while you read. Its your jam. Oh, beer-league hockey blogging, truly you are a cruel, cruel mistress. “Why haven’t you called?” “What have you been doing?” “Where have you been since November 14th 2014?”…

Bz 3 – Havoc 2

There are a small handful of stories that every reporter both dreads and hopes for, moments of such importance that people come together around the closest TV or in quiet groups at their church to experience the event with those most dear to them. Like Dan Rather bringing the nation the news of the death of a president…

Bz 4 – Mad Ferrets 4

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….

Games: 2 – Recaps: 1

Back to back games! How NHL are we? Not very. That sentence started strong but I probably shouldn’t have followed it through to its obvious conclusion. Lesson learned! Don’t follow through. The Bladezillas played 2 games this week on Wednesday and Thursday against the Sturgeons and Steelers respectively. One of these recaps will be long…

Bz 2 – Vikings 4

Another day another Bz game explained through the power of memes! Everyone was so excited to be back on the ice in our first tilt vs the Viking because, you know, we love our of course in our heads all we think is: It turned out, however, that any exaggerated sense of skill we had…
