🏒 A Kansas City KAYAK fan could sympathize right here,
With Hockey you get brawling too…and fans just love to cheer.
A penalty’s a given, players all possess a STASH,
The Sport is one of gamesmanship, so penalties? Not SCARCE.
It’s not for the faint-hearted, no soft GUITAR-stringing strum…
It’s facewash, bites and head locks..It’s the fighting and the scrum.
There’s blood, there’s brawn, you’ll get it all…a little this and that…
With Hockey you just never know what you’ll SHAKE A STICK AT! 🏒
Now this is a pleasant surprise. We’ve seen Baseball, Football, a CLIPPING or two of Basketball, but I only remember one previous HOCKEY puzzle. It was back on May 15th, when we watched a forlorn fan ordering Sunny Side-Down Eggs at the Victoria Diner. The place was nice, not a DIVE or anything, but our fan sure looked SHOT. And I remember thinking that maybe he should have ordered a MUFFIN that morning instead…Anyway, before I get TRAPped in the past, let’s SHIFT back to the present…
All of our words today are REBOUNDS, with Stash HOLDING the record for being the most recent, April 20th. So far this morning, no one’s CHECKed in with any concerns, but it is a Saturday morning, and with the late nights some of them keep on Fridays…I suspect a few may be DELAYED OFFSIDE. So, let’s just move on to our cartoon…We find ourself on the ICE of the fictional Kansas City Kayak’s HOCKEY ARENA this morning, watching a PLAYER, whom I’ll call MICH IGAN, COOLing his heels. The Referee is seen telling him to “Get in the box”, the PENALTY BOX, because he was caught HOOKING. For those of you who may not know, in HOCKEY, HOOKING is when a player impedes an opponent by putting the blade of his STICK into the other man’s body. It’s definitely a PENALTY. And as we see MICH SHAKING his STICK at the ref, our question is asking…The game had more penalties then you could..SHAKE A STICK AT! Well, GORDIE, GORDIE for us! HOWE cool is that one? GORD one, David! You’re definitely no HACK!
Ok, eye candy…I was trying to place the Jersey, but it doesn’t really look OFFICIAL. Since it’s Red, is it the Capitals, the Flames, the Devils, the Hurricanes? The partially hidden logo seems non-descript. Could be the LEFT WING of something, but I’d be SKATING on really thin ICE if I RUSHed to judgement. There’s a second player shown, already sitting it out in the box…MICH is seen being surly to the Ref…He really should CZECH himself..And we can also see the circled ZONE designation…but that might be the END of the details…So, what’s the eye candy? I think I’ll go with MICH’s NOSE…Something about it just sort of HOOKED me in! So, There you have it, Folks! Done! Have a great day, Everyone!..And I hope you all strike GOAL today! 🏒🙋🏻
