'Tis The Season

I'm pretty certain that dinosaurs don't celebrate Christmas. I could be wrong, but I have yet to see a paleontologist dig up a set of dinosaur bones wearing a Santa toque. Outside of Barney the Dinosaur, I also doubt that any dinosaurs knew Christmas carols or even cared about them as well. However, if you're a Canada West hockey team named the Dinos, it seems that the Dinos' marketing team wanted the women's hockey team to show a little Christmas spirit after exams were over and the holiday season was upon us.

To be honest, I'm not sure that any of the players featured in the video below wanted to take part from their reactions to being asked to participate. However, all were good sports and had some fun with it including goaltender Kelsey Roberts who has yet to deke anyone in Canada West hockey.

Here are the Calgary Dinos women's hockey team serenading you with their version of the holiday tune "Jingle Bells".
Not bad, right? Some may have a second career in entertainment with the way they carried a tune. I do appreciate that Calgary got one of their two game-winning goal scorers to sing the line about scoring the winning goal tonight as Delaney Frey has a game-winner on the season! The other choice would have been Rachel Paul, but she got the line about her teammates skating full speed a few moments earlier.

Either way, good on the Dinos women's hockey team for having a little fun and spreading a little cheer this holiday season! I'm not saying they need a Christmas miracle to make the Canada West playoffs right now, but they're going to have to work as hard as Santa Claus if they hope to make it a reality.

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
