Life on the road with the Janesville Jets
On Tuesday, March 28, the Janesville Jets defeated the Springfield Jr. Blues 4-1 at the Nelson Center in Springfield, Ill. The win ended a three-game losing streak for the Jets, who had already clinched the North American Hockey League’s Midwest Division title.
The NAHL season spans eight months, not including the playoffs that begin next weekend. Teams play 60 games, including 32 of them away from home, so the players learn all about life on the road while hoping to earn a college scholarship to play at the next level. They learn what to bring on their Van Galder coach bus to make the ride as comfortable as possible. They learn new sleeping positions and ways to get around sleeping players on their way to and from the bathroom.
Veteran Jets players pass on typical hockey traditions, such as a card game called Shnarps and a game called Sewer Ball which calls for players to stand in a circle and keep an underinflated soccer ball from ever hitting the ground.
The trips can be long, like a 519-mile trek each way for a weekend in Brookings, S.D. The schedule this night called for a quick down-and-back trip to Springfield. The bus left Janesville at 12:30 p.m. and pulled back in at 1:48 a.m.
The team’s rookies are surely feeling the grind of the long season for the first time. For veterans, it’s old hat. But they all agree the season and bus rides have forged a deep bond, and they’d love nothing more to see it all continue deep into the postseason.
