bunnyman666 Posted June 24, 2021 Share Posted June 24, 2021 (edited) I am a 49 year old hack. I learnt the modding quite early knowing that my game was literally going to be different. I literally play how I feel the shot is going to go. But I am not playing any games that would cost a team owner a league bonus and my play isn’t going to have much impact on anything. I am a proud duffer, though the competitive side that I had whilst racing bicycles and duathlon can come out. None the less, it seems there has to be a “coach” every once in awhile. Well, I met him in this group I play with. Keep in mind that myself and my goalie partner are the younger guys. This guy is a mere infant compared to the rest of the group. Well, I let in a goal in a weird little play. “Coach” says in this serious, nearly screamy tone “you gotta keep your stick down!” Duh. I made a mistake that cost a goal. Whoop dee fuckin’ do. Nobody is getting shipped off to a minor league town 250 miles away from a major airport. Nobody is getting fined by the coach for a stupid penalty (yes- I was on a team where coach fined us $10 per stupid penalty). We only have two goalies, so I am not going to be wearing the ball cap on the bench. You bring your own puck bunnies and the scouts are at real games! This game means NOTHING. It is FUN, NOT competitive. I got that out of me YEARS back and WILL NOT play in competitive league. I wouldn’t join one OUT OF RESPECT to guys and girls who still have that FIRE. I was there once. I have a job to come home to after the game. When I am competitive, it is no longer fun as I will literally shut down other areas of life to better myself in sport. Not interested any longer. Nothing to prove for me. So, what do I do? Put on my best, mocking Canadian accent and say “whatever you say, coach. You’re da best and I am merely a mortal.” Every time he’d score, I would let out a “whoop de doo!” If this jack ass is on my team Sunday, it’s going to be tough. If he’s on the OTHER team, I will have to resist the urge for aggressive poke checks intended to trip or just outright hammering him with a stick. But a message needs to be sent, dontcha think?!?
