    Just a quick reminder of the rules

    1. If you drop it must be done 24 hours in advance or you are expected to pay.

    2. No show you are expected to pay.

    3. Bring a light and dark Jersey. I will try to make teams the day before

    4. If you’re tired (evidenced by “not moving your feet” © Rodentsrule!) go for a shift change – recover on the bench, not the ice :dup:

    This. Especially with 22 skaters.

    I might load up the family truckster and bring the family for an afternoon of fun. See some old faces that I haven’t seen for years.

    Paid.

    But the most important question… is my gold jersey acceptable as a dark color?

    Tiggsy jr. say he wants to come so he can laugh at me. He skated circles around me when he was a squirt so I’m sure it’s only gotten worse by now.

    I disagree w/ Jup – I think gold is a ‘dark’ color. That is to say, it’s not white. Either way, gold and gray lead to confusion by both teams – but that was already guaranteed. :lol:

    Does it even have an HECC expiration date? I bet >90% of the buckets at this skate are expired. Mine sure was. :hammer:

    Well… The original POI jerseys are maroon on one side and reversible to gold on the other. So I am going to say that GOLD has been used for a light color going back to the beginning.

    Similarly, the Gophers wear their Gold alternates at home, against teams wearing their Away/Dark jerseys.

    Gold is definitely considered a “light” color generally, going all the way back to medieval heraldry.

    Gold is “light” when everyone on the team is wearing it, won’t argue with you there. But my 4-year-old can successfully identify which side the yellow dot goes in the “white/dark” scenario below. Just saying… :wink: :poke:

    [attachment=0]Untitled.png[/attachment]

    I still have the maroon POI jersey, my wife uses it to color her hair. Not sure what happened to the gold one (weren’t they reversible and stitched together???)

    Ahhh, but the question isn’t White vs Dark, it’s Light vs Dark.

    Wow, didn’t think my gold jersey question would start quite the debate. Guess I have to find something else for a dark since I have several “light” jerseys then. :lol:

    Damnit I didn’t see this in time I have to work that day if would have been great to watch like the old days.

    Say hi to Angell for me! Still love that I was part of the worst line change ever when he jumped off and I jumped on. Then he jumped back on and beat me up!

    Hi Bert!

    Keith reached out to me earlier….I didn’t think it would work out but now that it is a later start, I could make it. Let me know! I have the POI jersey ready to roll.

    Thanks!

    [mention]Bert[/mention] if this goes well might we make it a more regular event? I’d be down for a Sunday every couple months! After an hour and a half of ice I’ll need that long to recover anyways. 😂

    Thor could not come to terms with Gold’s GM and cannot attend. There is a open spot for the Gold team. I can get my neighbor to play if needed

    On the first page you have Thor Jr as the first sub.

    If you still need a body I’ll play. Need to make sure I still have all my gear though!
