44S, no. 6; newsletter by r.n.)
editor's note: And now another installment by our very own Captain. This one is no doubt destined to be a newsletter classic ...
Seeing all the Canadians in the NHL All-Star game line-ups has me thinking French Canadian. You must read the following with a bad French accent like the goalie from Slap Shot.
The Pirate de Cote (the Coastal Pirates) came out hitting on all cylinders against the Femme de Dejeuner (translated as the Ladies of Lunch). The Femmes did tally first as the Pirate de Cote “Capitaine” (Pirates Captain) sent out the late arriving “Garcon Savage” (Wildman) to play defense instead of Brian Newcomb (no translation, they've seen him play and blocked him at the border). An ill-timed pinch and a goal and we were down. Put that one on the “Capitaine.” As the French say: “Faire la Guerre” (loosely translated as it is “the work of the war” and is used as an excuse when shit happens under pressure, got to love the French).
The “defencemen” of the Pirate de Cote then took over. Rapid fire goals by Eddie and an end-to-end rush by the “Train de Merchandise” (Gucci the freight train) gave the Pirate the lead for good. A goal by the “Capitaine” off a sweet feed from LeMatty (that is French already, no?) and a break away by Joe Nigro sealed the victory. An open-netter by LeMatty was the “piece de resistance.”
Really I just wanted an excuse to call them Femmes ... (kidding of course boys).

1) DARREN GUGGLIELMELLI
For starting the scoring off when he danced through center ice and head-faked John Arena.
2) ED GESIOR
For following-up on Gucci's shot to give the Pirates the lead in the 1st — something we never lost after that.
For some breakaway stops while the defense (yes, 3 of our blueliners scored this night) started piling-it on.
