World's Okayest Blog: New Ink & Championship Memories

Dell talks about his tattoos and championship experience with the Allen Americans

by Aaron Dell @ADell32 / Sharks Goaltender

Being in Dallas last week, I got to meet up with some guys from the Allen Americans, who I played with for a few seasons. It was a good time the whole time I was in Allen. Lots of good memories, but I don't think anything compared to winning the championship there.

In Allen, we were the top place team in the league. We were a little more excited knowing that we really had a chance to go all the way. When you're a team like that, you don't really dread playing against certain teams. It was pretty exciting. 

In the playoffs, there was only three playoff series in the league at the time, with only eight or ten teams I think. It was pretty crazy. We kind of had a storybook ending in 2013. Game 7 overtime, came back from being down two to nothing. I don't think you could have wrote it any better.
