Thanks to Lyle for sending this to me....I'm not sure who gets credit for writing it whether its Lyle or someone else...whomever you are - great job!
I just wish I would have received it last night, because now its less than 8 hours from game time!
Twas The Night Before Hockey
T'was the night before Hockey,when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring except me and the mouse.
The equipment was hung in the lockers with care, with the hopes Hockey would soon be there.
The players were nestled all snug in thier beds, while visions of stardom , danced in thier heads
And Fans in thier seats and coaches in Ties, In thier hands, Where Young Futures lies.
When out on the ice rose such a clatter, they sprang from the bench to go get 'atter
Away down the ice they flew like a flash, across the lines, avoiding a slash.
The men on the ice, All for the same reason, to give them - and us , a great season.
When 1800 pairs of eyes should appear, to watch a Team to thier hearts they hold near,
Now, Renzy, Now Dorais, Now Lynott, and Berky,On,Sam, On Josh, On Riddle, On Bailey !
To the end of the rink ! Up against the wall, now Skate Away , Skate Away , Skate Away , ALL .
