Top Shelf Where Mama hides the Cookies!

A Fun Promo for the Dominator's Breakaway Challenge: "Top Shelf Where Mama Hides the Cookies!"

In our latest promotional video for the Dominator's Breakaway Challenge, we brought some humor to the ice with Coach Joe Lo Tempio and our rising star, Geybrielle Maasin, affectionately known as Geyb. This playful video showcases the fun and camaraderie that is at the heart of our Hasek's Heroes program while also honoring a beloved piece of Buffalo Sabres history.

The Scene

The video opens with Coach Joe and Geyb sitting on the bench together, both in hockey gear but pretending to be teammates in the tournament. Geyb, with his helmet off, is munching on a cookie. Coach Joe turns to Geyb and asks, "Hey Geyb, what’s the move to score on this goalie?"

Geyb, still chewing on his cookie, responds with a grin, "Top shelf where mama hides the cookies!" This line is a hilarious nod to the iconic phrase coined by the legendary Sabres announcer Rick Jeanneret. As Geyb finishes his line, the audio of Rick Jeanneret's famous call plays in the background.

Honoring Rick Jeanneret

Rick Jeanneret's iconic phrase, "Top shelf where mama hides the cookies," is beloved by hockey fans, particularly those of the Buffalo Sabres. By incorporating this classic line into our promotional video, we pay tribute to Jeanneret's lasting legacy and connect our event to the rich hockey culture of Buffalo.

Promoting the Dominator's Breakaway Challenge

This fun and engaging video serves not only to entertain but also to promote the upcoming Dominator's Breakaway Challenge. The tournament is a fundraiser that directly benefits Hasek's Heroes, a program founded by legendary goaltender Dominik Hasek. Our mission is to provide underprivileged youth in the Buffalo area with the opportunity to play hockey for free, supplying all the necessary equipment and training.

Quote from Coach Joe Lo Tempio, Program Coordinator of Hasek's Heroes:

"Our program isn't just about developing hockey skills; it's about teaching life lessons and building community. Events like the Dominator's Breakaway Challenge help us continue this mission and support these amazing kids."

Supporting Our Mission

The funds raised through the Dominator's Breakaway Challenge will support the Hasek's Heroes program, ensuring we can continue to offer these opportunities to young athletes in our community. The event itself is a shootout-style tournament that brings together teams to compete in a fun, friendly, and supportive environment. Participants not only get to showcase their skills but also contribute to a cause that makes a real difference in the lives of local kids.
