We’ve been following the Vancouver Wellwoods since January, when we were blessed with the knowledge of their existence. They would swiftly become PITB’s official women’s road hockey team. (What? Your blog doesn’t have an official women’s road hockey team? That’s too bad.) We bestowed this honour upon them for the following reasons: first, we share a love of Kyle Wellwood, whose soft hands, sharp mind, and overall adorableness are the virtues around which they have built their team, and second, they are some funny, funny ladies.

Their first video, “Training is Cheating“, gave us some insight into their approach to training, which is not to train. Now, they present their second video, “Destiny”, which elucidates their commitment to noncommitment: the Wellwoods may or may not be destiny itself, and destiny doesn’t train.

Good point. Neither does destiny watch the road, buy the proper footwear, or attempt more than 10 pushups in a row. Destiny’s got better things to do.

Watch the video, if for no other reason than for the shot of Morgan (the captain and goalie) doing karate in a hallway. Oldboy she ain’t.

      So have we set a date for PITB vs. Wellwoods road hockey? I’m woefully out of the loop on this.

        The Five Hole For Food people are saying July 9. I have it triple-circled on my calendar.

          Shoot, I hope not. I have a family campout that can’t be re-scheduled that weekend…

    My neighbor named her wiener dog after Wellwood.

    I’m pretty sure the knight taking the pawn on d4 there 34 seconds into the video was a bad move. It looks like both the queen and the rook were bearing down on the pawn. No other black piece is visibly eying down on d4… both black’s rooks are visible elsewhere, the other knight has been taken, and there’s no black bishop on the diagonal. Unless this is some sort of sacrificial discovered attack, black has given up two points of material with no compensation.

      Destiny is overagressive at board games.

      OR

      Destiny doesn’t know how all the chess pieces move ;)
