It's about old guys who started playing hockey as little boys and still play this silly game as old geezers. It's about their playmates . the gals, friends, families and other folks enjoying good times . more or less related to playing organized shinny. It's about jocularity . a mixture of jock activities and hilarity. There's all kinds of fun times --- in arenas, on the ice, in bars, having bar-b-qs, on ball diamonds, golf courses and umpteen other places . sort of like Nathan Detroit's "oldest floating crap game," at Snoopy's Senior World Hockey tournament or Barney's Sports Bar in Joxville. And there's lots of "action" . off the ice as well as on it. How about the Old Boys' team having a petite exotic dancer for Max's 65th . in a grungy dressing room filled with over-sized, sweaty, smelly skaters, Gentleman Jock's international pool tournament or the hi-jinks of the "inner sanctums"? Then there's the very special times . dining with the Great One, meeting the Big Man from Floral and caddying for Arnie. On the ice, we're captivated by endless "big screen" highlights . like Charley Hustle's whirling dervish plays, Dirk's dastardly deeds and Boom Boom's hat trick . of penalties! How about such zany characters, like Andy, the flaky goalie who writes poetry and sings songs for the boys? . and Mikey the walking, talking joker? . and Larry, the ballerina? Life has its "ups and its downs" .. so do the old pucksters. Fiesty has a serious heart attack and returns to play and "ref." Whale is an obese stinker with a barfy bag (of gear) . and that dreaded condition known as"oldzheimers" After all is said and done, the Old Pucksters and their Playmates share boundless camaraderie --- the most vital ingredient in seniors' hockey.
