Lou Lumi from Stick Gloves Shirt had an amazing time. Not sure
who knew, but I didn't find out until after the second game that Lou was playing
with pneumonia. In typical Lou fashion, he didn't give up and gave it his all on
every shift. In our second game, we played Barry's Sarcoma Snipers. As luck
would have it, we won our first game by enough goals to advance to the playoffs
and faced Sarcoma Snipers again. There is no doubt that the 0-7 scoreline we saw
on the first go around was going to change drastically in the playoffs. The
Snipers kept it close until the second period. Scoreline changed from 0-2 to 0-6
in a blink. Luckily, we got a goal in to feel like we were able to give Lou a
chance to cheer.
All that changed in the third. We called a timeout to collect
ourselves as it was obvious we were not giving Lou the day we wanted him to
have. After the timeout, and during a small scrum in front of the net, Lou was
right on the doorstep gabbing for the puck. Being dog tired, he fell to his
knees and continued to sweep at the puck until he finally put it through the 5
hole and scored a goal.You can only imagine the sizable roar that came from the
Stick Gloves Shirt bench. Not to be outdone, we could clearly hear the clanging
of sticks over the boards from the Snipers bench. Those guys are classy and a
true testament to why we work so hard for one day. They made Lou's
Lou messaged me this morning. He wants to thank FOAC for
allowing us to be involved as it was a fun and inspiring day for him. Regardless
of how he feels from playing and the pneumonia he is feeling stronger and
reinvigorated. You guys rock!!
