The Wellwoods step out on PITB for a segment with Shaw TV (VIDEO)

As you may know, Pass it to Bulis is raising $10,000 for the Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer event on October 13, 2012. (And in the words of Biggie, if you don’t know, now you know.) But we’re not the only team coming together to end one of the world’s suckiest diseases. Our officially official women’s road hockey team, the Wellwoods, is doing the same.

This is somewhat unfortunate for us, since we’re soliciting donations from the same community and the Wellwoods are much better-organized (they have jerseys) and much better-looking (at least in my opinion, since I’m way straight), and much further along (they were smart enough to start earlier).

Plus, they’re being resourceful. The Wellwoods have been hard and work increasing their exposure with media outlets that aren’t Pass it to Bulis, cuckholding us with a treacherous appearance at the Legion of Blog, for instance, and, most recently, being interviewed on Shaw TV by reporter Paul McLellan. We would ignore this video, since it could eat into our own fundraising efforts, but while we may be competing for dollars in the same community, we’re united against a common enemy. Every dollar you give to help fight cancer, regardless of how you give it, is appreciated. (But seriously, give it to us.)

Also the video is hilarious. You should watch it.

That’s the Wellwoods at their finest right there. Things I loved:

  • The way the report underscores the Wellwoods’ commitment to not training — “We may not train ever” — by zooming in on someone eating a cookie.
  • Captain Morgan Tierney, on Kyle Wellwood: “He’s our spirit animal.”
  • “Kyle Wellwood actually knows about us. His quote — this is a direct quote, I believe — is ‘I’m not embarrassed.’ It is impossible to brag worse.
  • Morgan, on the tribulations the team has endured: “We’ve taken blistering slapshots to the ovaries.”
  • And finally, I especially enjoyed the flourish by McLellan when he incorporates the footage of the little girl watching through the fence. “If you’re feeling inspired by the Wellwoods — like this fan…” he says, as the girl’s mother drags her away from the fence. Ah, fluff pieces.
Best of luck to the Wellwoods in their fundraising efforts (which you can give money to here).

      If I order another batch of jerseys at some point I’ll definitely check and see in any PITB readers want one.
