Not that anybody cares much but I have been tied up in life and not much time for anything else. Finishing garage, cleaning gutters and all the horse crap.

I did catch the OSU tilt last night. For two periods the Goof's stuck it to the Buckeyes. But hockey has three periods. The third they looked like they were just hanging on and watching. Although Frazee was not really challenged for a good part of the game he seems more "settled" this year. Staying in the nets and not trying to make over the top plays away from the crease.

It is going to take a while for this team to mesh. The theme last night was "keep it simple" I hope this is in reference to all the behind the back and drop passes they have been doing. Okposo looks lost out there so far. Not sure if opponents are keying on him but he just has not shown any flash this season. I know it's early but he needs to wake up, as well as Barribal, if the Goof's have any chance at a title run.

In "other news" it seems as thought Suze is about to lose their name. This report on says that there may be a settlement in the case with the NC$$. Posters on are slowly coming to grips with the fact that the name is going BYE-BYE. What will happen to the ralph? What will happen to all the Indian Heads that adorn the Reichstag? We have three short year to wait and find out.

Here is a interesting article about the NorthdaCanada. What's up with that FUGLY logo on It's TM'd so I'm not going to post it.

I will be watching with interest the CC-UNH series. CC looked hungry last weekend. Although the games were close score wise, CC seemed to out hustle the boys for most of both games. It's early and CC should make some waves this year. So when the Pairwise(way to early in the season to bring up that word) comes out it should not hurt. The next two series will show what they are made of. At UNH and then to the ralph for two.

Good News, Bad News

The good news is the Goof's take the Ice-Breaker tourney with wins over RPI and Michigan. It should be MichAGAIN. Man, they have their number lately.

Friday's tilt pitted them against RPI. It was not a pretty two periods of hockey for the POI. RPI took it to them in every respect. They built a solid 3 goal lead through tough play and desire. Finally, the Goof's awoke from their slumber and at the end of the second period scored and the dominated the play until the horn.

Third period was ALL Minny. The one thing that really pissed me off was that 5 minute major handed out. They are back to calling these weak penalties if the guy turns at the last minute.

4-3 final and off to face MichAGAIN.

This was a much more entertaining game to watch. Back and forth trading blows. It ended on a goal at 5:27 by Grand Rapids star Patrick White.

Now the UGLY. 2 games into the season we lose Ryan Stoa to a knee injury. There are not a lot of specifics on the injury and I did not see it. Man I feel bad for him. He looked really strong and was set to be a leader.

Off to CC for conference opener. More on that later...
