WHAT A SHOWING AT THE BTSH OLYMPICS GUYS! Really proud of everyone who came out and left it all on the catwalk. We know you passed on watching the Rick & Morty premiere to be there, which is the ultimate sacrifice. Don’t worry guys, the Olympics recap is coming soon…
Phil (& Amy) D from Anklebiters
As I said, there is a separate BTSH Olympics article coming so I’m trying to keep 3 stars about hockey, but I needed to separately recognize Phil & Amy for all of their work putting together the Olympics. There were of course a number of other people involved who should and will be recognized, but Phil stepped up for the 2nd year in a row to bring this awesome event back. There is a lot that happens behind the scenes to set up the events, keep the Olympics moving along, and get everyone sufficiently lit, and Phil did a great job herding cats on Sunday. I would also note that Phil & Amy made 200 Jell-O shots. Two hundred. Jell-O shots. And they were gone well before the last games finished (you savages). I wish somebody had told me that Dr. Peacock’s medical license was revoked and thus his doctor’s note wouldn’t actually let me call in sick the next day, but some things you just have to learn the hard way.
Akhil M from Gut Rot
It’s always nice to see a league veteran get his first hat trick, and that’s exactly what Akhil did on Sunday. When it happened, Morgen was all like:
#AKHILNATION (Morgen has kindly asked that we use the hashtag, as “we are trying to get it trending in the TSP vicinity”). I guess I can’t write this without saying….NO, fight it….GUT ROT BITCHEZ!!
Karsten from LBS, Inc.
I know a lot of wild moments and alcoholic savagery happened at the Beer Olympics, but forget about that for a second. This past Sunday, I witnessed the most inspirational/amazing/exciting/triumphant hockey moment of my entire life, and because of that the first star goes to Karsten. We throw the word hero around here a lot, but he really was a hockey hero this weekend. For those that don’t know, Karsten’s mother passed away on Friday after battling a long illness. A mere two days later, Karsten still made it a point to show up for the team. He could only make the last 15-20 minutes of the game, and what did he do? HAT TRICK. 3 shifts, 3 goals. His last goal was a buzzer beater on a breakaway from a stretch pass with the final seconds of the game ticking down, waiting for the goalie to drop before burying it. The entire LBS bench cleared. It was a beautiful BTSH moment. This is what we play for, guys. Long live BTSH. And LBS!
Everyone at BTSH Olympics – There were so many gutsy performances… your personal call-outs will come, just you wait..
Pete G from Cobra Kai – For assisting the game-tying goal w/ 13 seconds left to send Gremlins/Kai into overtime before scoring the game winner almost immediately in OT so that everyone could get to the Olympics.
Alex F from LBS, Inc. – For lugging a hockey goalie bag full of booze and juice to the court to make us all delicious Roofie Coladas.
