Ice: New-Look Squirrels Survive

With five new members in the lineup, the Squirrels started their Summer 2010 season on the wrong foot, going down 2-0 in the third period before scoring three straight for a 3-2 victory.

Brent Machado scored in his first game back, as did new Squirrel Michael Ricci. The third goal was also credited to Machado though someone said Jeff Headley actually scored it.

The Squirrels welcome Ricci, Doug Winters, who played a great game on defense, John Burke, David Fronapfel, and William Rand. Another new guy, David Steckel (not the one from the Capitals), is out with an injury.

Squirrel Chris Wautel was the scorekeeper, crediting the Squirrels with a 40-11 shot advantage.

Squirrels Stickers

For those of you who don’t have one or haven’t seen one, this is the Screaming Squirrels bumper sticker. It’s available on CafePress.

Below is the Screaming Squirrels helmet sticker, which we typically cut in half and put each half on either side of our helmets.

I have a few of each sticker on hand, so if you need one ask me before ordering. – Ben

Borlik Leaves Team, On Top

Longtime Squirrel Matt Borlik announced after the team’s 8-0 championship victory Sunday that he’ll be moving to Philadelphia within the next few weeks. Though we’ll expect to see him every once in a while when he comes down to visit, this marks the end of a tenure that’s lasted since 2002, when he nearly got into a fist fight with the then-team captain during a pick-up game soon before we recruited him as a backup goaltender.

Borlik was instrumental in two roller championships and two ice championships during his time with the Squirrels. We all had plenty of memories of him, from the punk clothing he’d wear into the locker room, the porn-star mustache, the broken doors, the rides from D.C. (the list goes on and on), but the best memories aren’t appropriate for publication.

We’ll miss ya, #98 (before he changed his number!)
