We started this year with Cup dreams in the air.
Now, hoping to stay above .500 seems more than fair.
With injuries galore,
the Bolt bench is quite sore.
As the team skates for practice with Coach Guy
Choices are being made by a man named Stevie
“Do I go after one to mind the net?
Do I again take that bet?”
“What about the defense or the Power Play?”
“Ahh! A pair of Mittens from Russia might end my dismay!”
Though on Mitten’s return leg,
he was lost to WiPeg.
Again Stevie and crew were at a loss.
What about a letter to Santa from the bench boss?
With the ending of this year
Do they have anything else to fear?
Have the Bolts, this year, been nice?
Or have they been naughty on our beloved ice?
Only time will tell, still the tickets will sell.
One thing’s for sure, our THUNDER will still be heard!
Happy Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!
