Need to restock….

Well I polished off my first batch of H2O Energy drink.  I am leaning more towards the Hydrate version because it doesn’t have any caffeine in it.  I am not one that does well with that kind of stuff.  But both products work awesome as advertised!   visit them at http://h2ooverdrive.com/splash

Easton 55s Hockey stick far from a beginner’s stick…

I picked this stick up a couple weeks ago.  It was on sale because there is a new model that came out.  So you can probably find this hidden gem in the sale rack.   Even if it isn’t on sale you can usually find it for 59 bucks or lower.  It is a great stick. The one I have is a 85 flex with a Cammalleri curve P4.  The stick has a little bit more weight to it than the more expensive sticks but I like that.   I have played three times now with this stick.  The curve and flex is great for excepting passes, passing, saucer passes and slap shots.   Because of the low kick point it keeps all your shots low so if you like to roof the puck you might want to get a more of a curve like the Hall Curve.   All and all it is a great all around stick and a great stick for the price…    Follow the discussion here —> http://www.thehockeynetwork.com/forum/equipment-reviews/player-equipment/sticks/34222-easton-55s-85-flex-cammalleri-curve.php#34222

Easton Mako Hockey Skates… sort of hands on

Easton Mako Skates coming out 3.15.13 but a friend of mine got a trial pair. He told me this “Wow! Anyone who demands a lot from their skates, Easton made an awesome skate. Omg these skates sell themselves damn I’m in love call up the preacher and schedule the church I’m getting married to these”  Direct quote so I guess they are pretty damn good.

Anyone getting them? He also told me there was zero break in time for these Mako Skates. They they are so comfortable and also put a spring in his skating. I don’t know the costing of these skates (my guess is 499.99) but I am sure they won’t be cheap. Let me know your thoughts on www.facebook.com/uppercornerhockey and Visit.www.easton.com/hockey the official site of the new Easton Mako Skates…

Harp on the good…

My Good friend Ryan Pizzo told me to not think so negative.  So today in my car ride into work I was thinking about just positive stuff that went on this past Sunday morning at open Inline.  As I was thinking about it.  I didn’t do so bad on my first time back in over 15 years.   I had 2 assist and 3 shots on goal…  I had one major flub I keep harping on but letting that get inside my head and cloud all the positive stuff I did  just isn’t a good thing.  So if this is any advice I can give ya is to Harp on the good what ever it may be…    This photo was found at http://www.musicinventions.org/shepherd0203/hockeystickharp.htm  Pretty bad ass or what?

Puck Push Cart!

My Daughter came up with this idea the other night when I was in the basement stick handling on the dry land Hockey shot tiles and shooting into the ‘snipers edge’ shooting tarp.  She tells me “I’ll help gather the hockey pucks for you Daddy…”   Talk about one smart little cookie or should I say biscuit =)

Green Biscuit “snipe” now shootable practice puck…

Green Biscuit Snipe” is what they are calling it.  I have the “sauce” version and I recommend now shooting it but they are claiming now that the “Snipe” version is totally shootable.  I went to Sports Plus in Whippanny, NJ and they have this awesome display right on the counter.  I didn’t test one out but I am very tempted to buy one.  They are a little more expensive that the original but If it doesn’t break and works just as good then I’m ALL IN!  For more info click here
