Happy Thanksgiving Weekend

So much hockey and not enough time to keep up. Penn State Icers travelled to the University of Rhode Island two weekends ago for a two game series. This was a rematch of last years ACHA championship game where the Icers lost to URI in the last couple of minutes. The new coach for the team is an alumni of the Providence College Friars which is an NCAA team and he arranged for the team to have some practice time at their facility on the trip down. The Icers which is a D1 ACHA team got to see how the other half lives. Nice.

I wanted to make the trip so husband came with me rather than going on the team bus. Great news, the Icers swept the series and if rumor is correct, gave URI their first two losses in the arena they've been in for the last four years. The new rankings won't be out for another week - it will be interesting to see what happens.

NHL news - yep Jonesy's team beat the Leafs the other night to go 1-1 with the Leafs for the season. Sigh. My Avalanche finally won a game the other night after going down 3 straight games. Right now their leading Vancouver 2-0 at the end of the 2nd. We're making a quick day trip down to Baltimore tomorrow so it's up early for me in the am I probably won't watch the 3rd.

Oh, knitting news? None. Spent the weekend painting. Hope you all had a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.

Tell YFB that the Rangers will seek revenge for him in just a little over an hour.
