A Guys Version of The Tupperware Party
I couldn’t help but smile, organization was finalized only a few hour prior to their arrival. Pizza was on order. A case of beer chilling. Arrivals were announced with various hoots and a smattering of friendly insults. As the lone female of the house, I was awarded hugs and kisses. I lit a scented candle to stave off any dressing room aromas. Who knows what havoc 14 boys can reek on the atmosphere of a house?
After everyone had settled in, I disappeared upstairs to begin an evening of quiet entertainment with *The Fringe*. These boys, they take their hockey pool seriously. There’s a specific order, an agreed roster, and even a dramatic pronouncement when players are chosen.
“The Aurora North Stars choose as their third round draft: the wiley winger from Tampa, Martin St Louis!”
It was hilarious.
3 hours, 6 pizzas and one case of beer later, the evening was deemed a success, and the boys disappeared into the night.
