A Swift Recap

Traction 2 – Bladezillas 1 Having lost 2 out of the last 3 games, the Bz went into their match vs the Traction hoping that, although they go crashing down, they come back every time. They never go out of style! Long time team member Jason “Gyllenhaal” Martin spoke prior to the game of his team’s recent blank…

The Good, The Bad, The Usual.

Bladezillas 4 – DB Athletic Club 5 The Good.* Hockey! That is a thing I believe we can all agree that we enjoy. We certainly got some hockey! Oh, you maybe wanted something more specific than that? So goddamned needy. Justin “In The Leg Hole” Doyle had a wonderful breakaway from Karl (not Sean, never…

Rockstarku A Bladezillas Recap Haiku.  Black, red, white Jerseys and sock tape. We prepare. “Please take it easy;” Oh, my. You must be new here – It seems unlikely. Oh, That Pass! A puck made bullet made promise. Dewey Shoots! Time and time again all in vain. Steve can deke and spin and backcheck and blocks shots and……

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…
