Wooooooo! I'm so excited! As you can see, I play for a team that wears blue and white, so I went half insane when I saw these on eBay... Gottem for $750 gently used. Woulda been close to $2500 new!

Sorry golfers, I love ya, but I'll always be a hockey player :)

Sweeeet!  When I was a kid, goalie pads weighed more than the kid!  Nobody wanted to wear them.

Hehehe... I will never cease to be amused by very young children in goaltending equipment that looks like they have three other children strapped to their body. And all the while defending about 20% of a 24 square foot net.

I'd come at you hard from the left dip right with a crossover while toe-dragging the puck left to right and at the last second saucer pass over your stick to my backhand and fire a 70mph backhand straight to the peanut butter and you'd put your new pads on ebay the next day because you peed them.

Do they even have ice to skate on in Houston?

post #6 of 10

I played in the net for a few years with a rec. group.  I was around 19-22 years old.  I had always skated, but I was not getting any faster and most of the guys could beat me to the puck out of a scrum.  I realized I could make more of a difference and be more involved while playing goalie.  I definitely had more fun.

 

I think everybody should have to play goalie at least 1 or 2 games.  It would help them understand what really helps the goalie, and more importantly, what does not help.

Pretty sure they don't have the recipe.

Oh and I'd do it wearing a cowboy hat!!

 

We actually have a ton of ice in Houston.  Nothing like the NE, but we have 6+ in the Houston area.  Including one inside the Galleria (playing inside a mall is fun).

 

As far as the recipe for ice... we're still working on that.  To date we've tried 1 part crude oil 2 parts land, 1 part crude 3 parts cow, and 3 parts crude 1 part wait.  None of it ever worked so we just hired some folks from Canada.

Icebergs, nice, always loved that graphic, even better in UMaine colors.I had a T-5500 Jimmy Howard spec glove that was a vaccuum cleaner , best glove I ever had. I only started to play golf because my knee injury forced me out of playing between the pipes.

Ahhh yes, those are Maine colors! I knew there was something out there that those pads made sense for. but they'll also make good "Ice Boltz" pads when I get them

Still waiting... hopefully early next week!
