I think we were all confused and mad this week when Bettman and the NHL announced their players will not be playing in the 2018 Olympics. Former Oiler Ryan Smyth told our friends at Global News “It’s a sad day for sure in the hockey world when something like this happens.” but don’t worry…Kyle Kemp and his Division 9 beer league team the “Canadian Citizens” are willing to step up for our country!
Good news…they finished in 7th place in their division last year and they don’t even need training camp! Their warm-up consists of “Winded from walking to ice” and “who hit pat in the head?” These guys are hilarious! One problem with this plan might be the pressure…they haven’t exactly been lighting it up in front of big crowds (as you probably guessed) “We get amped up when our kids and wives show up and actually stay the whole game.”
IF somehow their offer isn’t accepted…they already have a different challenger for a game in Korea.
