Super Sunday!

Big games on Sunday. Jeremy's team was in the hunt for a finals birth, and I was lucky enough to have the connections to attend. North Toronto Hockey Rink, just north west of Eglinton and Yonge, is where Jeremy brought his under-14 year old boys, the green "Spokes", to the North Toronto Hockey League semi-finals.

Right off the bat you could tell that Jer's team was a bit weaker... The "Avenue Road Pool Service" was stacked, but Jer's "Spokes" just had something about them that day..

A shot off the top of the glove and off the crossbar. Beautiful.

Top corner goal by #14.

At about 7 minutes left in the third, another top one, this time by #15! Ricocheting off the top corner post, the Spokes took the lead 5-4, and ended the Pool's goalie frustration.


The Pool's try a "daring" move and pull their goalie...

...only to have the empty netter seal the deal.

The last faceoff. These boys earned it.


There were no on ice celebrations, mostly because the Zamboni came on the ice about 2.3 seconds later, but the post game locker room speech no doubt gave these boys the hunger for one more. After a flask of Champagne we all sprinted down in the convoy to 801 King W, where we caught the end of the CAN-USA 2nd, and pretty much a perfect Canada Super Sunday sweep, day to night.
