Happy Holidays from Weiss Tech Hockey!

photo copyThis poem came to me via Pops Ryan, Head Coach of the Rowan University Women’s Team. It was too good not to share… I know the feeling!

If your patience is tested, and your energy diminished,
Stay loyal to your team – the season’s only half finished.
If your leader in assists is still the goaltender,
Stay true to your dream – show no sign of surrender.
If they miss open nets, and are always short-handed
Stay upbeat at all times – in Hockey that’s demanded.
If you start to lose faith, because your team’s losing ground
Remember, it takes just one goal to turn things around

So may the rest of this season be nothing but thrills
May you be 99% on the penalty kills.
May each bouncing puck wind up on your stick,
May your D-Guys stand tall and your danglers be sick.
May a buzz fill the stands, may the arena be packed
May the whole hockey world know that your team’s really jacked.
May the night’s final horn sound with you One Goal up
May you defy all the odds …and may you drink from the Cup!

Pops Ryan
