Huskies Silver Mite Team Debuts But Drops Game -- William "Bakugon Hot-Rod Pokemon" Steadman hits the ice

Dateline January 3, 2010.  The Oak Park Silver Mite Huskies made their long-awaited appearance today at the Leafs Ice Center in deep-suburban Chicago. Although they showed spunk, they simply did not have enough to bag the leafs. “I like to think it was a learning opportunity,” said defenseman William Steadman playing in his new #12 jersey. “We certainly have a lot of room to improve, and we intend to do so.”

The Huskies began quick, but were slowed midway through the first quarter when one of their forwards fell and decided on a nap. After the coach roused him, the Huskies allowed the Leafs to net their first goal at 9:35. Unfortunately for the Huskies, they never regained the lead and in fact failed to score for the rest of the contest.

There were flashes of brilliance, however. Forward Hanna displayed excellent puck-handling and defenseman Steadman showed nice skating. Steadman also played a bit at center in the second period, winning the first face-off of his career.

The happy Huskies dropped the match 5-0 (or at least that is what the scoreboard said -- the officials may have missed a few Leaf goals along the way) but were thrilled with their first performance.

After the match, Steadman’s sister Sarah “Go-San” Steadman of the Franklin Park Panthers called Steadman to congratulate him and attach a moniker for future stories of this type. “Good work,” she said, “but you need a nickname. For soccer season, you were ‘hot rod.’ You going with that?”

“It’s not enough to capture my essence,” replied brother William.

“What do you want?”

“I want something with the fighting spirit of the Bakugan Battle Brawlers and the fame of the Pokemon!”

“OK. I’ll tell the reporter (named Dad) that from now on you are William Bakugan Hot-Rod Pokemon Steadman.”
