Saw a "Whack, Get Out!" last night...

...from a hockey ref!

I travelled to visit a buddy this weekend and witness our respective alma maters duel it out in a college hockey pair of games (Maine at RPI).

Near the end of the game, RPI player gets called for a head-contact penalty, a five-minute major and game misconduct (out for the rest of the game). RPI bench is angry with the call and directs something at the official. Referee whistles, and quickly signals whack, get out!

As soon as he signaled it, I beamed and immediately thought of this forum's running gag. (Maine's 5-2 win helped somewhat.) What I learned: the unsportsmanlike conduct signal in hockey is the same as our T.
Confidence is a vehicle, not a destination.

Forum Word Of The Day: Hockey Barn ...

With the way the weather has been lately here in New England, it must have been a very cold wait for the ejected player sitting on the team bus. Hockey barns are cold, but not as cold as a team bus in a sub-freezing parking lot.

I can't wait for Global Warming to kick in and warm things up here in New England.

My brother-in-law is a hockey official just outside of Phila. We talk a lot and compare games!

He has more game misconducts, bench issues, fights and ejections, coaches acting like a$$e$, state reports and paperwork, in a year than I'll have in a lifetime of officiating basketball - thankfully!

PS - He says their annual exam is a real bear too!
There was the person who sent ten puns to friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did.
