Monroeville Zombies

The Monroeville Zombies are an international street hockey team. They are members of the VASHL.

They are one of the Original Four teams of the VASHL, along with the Leonardo Reapers, Puck U and View Askew Vulgarians.

The team takes their inspiration from Kevin Smith’s 2008 film, Zack and Miri Make a Porno.

In the movie, characters Zack and Deacon play for a hockey team in Monroeville, Pennsylvania known as the Zombies. This was a reference to George Romero’s classic zombie film, Dawn of the Dead, which was filmed at the Monroeville Mall in the 1970s.

Team History

It started in 2009. What others would negatively dub “the zombie apocalypse,” we simply called “morning.” And while those same others ran in fear of our very existence, we felt pretty good about our prospects. Ample food everywhere, confusion, fear… it was Paradise, and we figured we had it good. I mean, we may be hard to understand, borderline unintelligible, but not unintelligent.

The reality, however, is that it hasn’t been as smooth sailing as we imagined when the supposed “Age of Zombies” began. Our years have often been more famine than feast. Our original group has changed frequently, as our zombie brethren dropped off or just disappeared, never to be seen or heard from again. Those of us who remain from that original pack have changed too. Our once hulking zombie soldier is now half the zombie he used to be in size, and one of us has even lost his leg (side effect of being undead and moving around a lot, I’m afraid).

Still, just as in every year since 2009, those of us in the zombie horde of Monroeville are making our trek back into Canada in search of a big, brainy meal. It’s my job to save the brains, and not let any food get by me. I’m not always successful, but remain hopeful that the feast we’ve been waiting for is within our shaky, decaying grasp. If not this year, then perhaps the next. We’re zombies; no matter how long it takes, we’ll get our meal.
