22W, no. 4; newsletter by b.n.)
You know, it would be nice if I wrote the newsletter on time. But I guess you take it where you can get it. And well, I don't want to sound like a crybaby or anything, but I have been kind of busy. Real busy in fact. So busy in fact that I couldn't write the damn newsletter. And then I start taking abuse for it. Well, I can't say as I blame anyone for complaining. Hey, I can't stop the rain by complaining, so why should anyone else? But that is really beside the point. No one wants to hear me gripe. No one wants to hear me complain (but I do apologize for getting the newsletter in so late).
But honestly, who knows what happened in that game? I can't even remember who we played. I know at one point the score was 4-0 against the Lumberjacks (and I only know it was the Lumberjacks because I just looked it up on the website). Then I remember # 67 taking a great pass from Evan and putting the puck passed Steve Carr for the first Pirate goal of the night. Then there was Russ's goal on a feed from Chris (the only reason I know that is because Harris sent me an email letting me know that). Then, of course, there was the blast from Keith at the point on a yet another feed from Evan (actually, I only assume it was a blast from the point because that is usually how Keith gets his goals, however Keith has been known from time-to-time to skate up the wing and crash the net — but I don't think that this was one of those times). So that was it for the scoring as the Lumberjacks defeated the Pirates, handing them the first loss of the Wednesday season — at least it was the first loss until the game this past week ... but that's another story.

editor's note: in an effort to raise readership of this newsletter (which is not one of #67's most enthusiastic offerings), we bring you this editorial cartoon — the views expressed are not necessarily those of Coastal Pirates management.
1) EVAN MILLER
For his 2-point night.
2) KEITH RICHARDSON
For his tenacious “D” (even though he was mercilessly hacked all night long), and also scoring the last goal.
