You’ve heard the expression, “Excuses are like buttholes, everyone’s got ’em” right? Well, it is 100% true, especially in the beer league circuit. Every night a beer league game is played is another chance to test out new excuses. To be frank I’m all out of new excuses and would love to hear any original ones you have. Most of these come from Stage 4/Stage 5 players.
Here are the most common excuses I have heard (….. and used) in beer league.
I would have scored but I got hooked on that play
I’m so freaking drunk right now
I’m trying out a different curve so my shots are all over the place
I thought my liney had the goal scorer
The Zam driver sucks. The puck is bouncing all over the place
This ice is too soft
This ice is too hard
The other team brought out ringers to beat us
Our goalie has to stop that shot
I would have caught him but I blew my knee out in Jr. B
You put me on the line with biggest plug on the team
I forgot to get my skates sharpened
This ref hates me
Pay my fees? … I forgot my checkbook at home. I’ll get ya next time
And last but not least.. this might be the most common and the most hated excuse by beer leaguers. If you’re someone who is going to use this… just stay home.
It was my turn for beer? I completely forgot!
