UVA Starting Hockey Goalie Gets Ejected From Season Opener For Chugging Beer During Timeout

If you’ve never attended a club sport at your university, you’re doing yourself a serious disservice. Collegiate club sports are essentially intramurals on steroids. These kids had enough talent to play on an “academic” scholarship at a smaller, private DIII school, but passed it up in favor of a larger state institution and the more laid back, laissez faire, zero fucks environment of paying to be on the team.

Case in point: the University of Virginia’s season opener Friday night. After taking a 7-0 lead in the third period against in-state rival Virginia Commonwealth, UVA goalie, Jake Anderson, had a thirst that could not be quenched simply by the water atop of his net. Instead, he called for and caught a Keystone Light from his fraternity brothers in the stands, and pounded a pre-celebratory beer during a timeout for a job well done denying every puck that crossed his path.

Anderson was handed down a five minute major and ejected for this ruthless display of disrespect toward his opponents. Not that it mattered in regard to the game. UVA went on to continue the beatdown to the final tune of 10-1. But I still have a bone to pick with the refs. How are you going to toss my boy Jake here? This kid is dropping like $1,500 a semester to play the damn sport. He could fill that gatorade bottle of his full of hunch punch and it should not only be allowed, but encouraged. These guys aren’t destined for the NHL, they’ll be playing in the same local beer league for the next twenty or so years after graduation. Jake’s simply trying to adapt his game for the next level.

        Dorn, you might not know this because you’re so old, but tang isn’t just a fruit-flavored beverage.

        You mean when he said “Hi, boys, would you like to step into my van for some tang?” he wasn’t offering them a fruit-flavored beverage?

        As he nods his head, hands them a cup of tang and leads them up to his bedroom to bang.

      Personally not a fan. You know the hard hits these guys take? And playing intoxicated doesn’t exactly help you. Rethink your comment chief.

        When there’s a drunk driving accident, who is the one who typically walks away I’m better shape, the intoxicated driver or the sober driver? Exactly, the intoxicated driver. So how is playing intoxicated not helping out? I’ve played in countless games where people are drinking between shifts and have never seen anyone get injured while doing this.

        It’s hockey, you’re supposed to play it with beer, man up.

    Thankfully the five minute major was just enough time for a quickie with a nice coed.
