Wow...so, it's been, like, forever, since I last updated. Sorry about being such a delinquent, but, you know, I've got a bad case of Senioritis...
So, we're 4-1-1. Looks like we haven't learned any lessons from last year. I keep telling the guys that we can't keep going out there each weekend, and not bring our "A" game, night in and night out. Look, WE'RE MICHIGAN!! Every team's gonna be gunning for us because of the "M's" on our chests. I don't care if we're playing Northeastern/LSSU, we have got to treat every game with the same type of dedication, hard work and focus that we would have if we were to play New Hampshire. C'mon, boys, let's go out there and take care of business!!
Speaking of Northeastern, we played them and BU down in Dayton to kick-off the season (Miami was there, too, but we didn't play them). Ny was out with a rib injury, so I actually got to wear the "C" for the weekend. It was something special, but I would have traded the "C" to get Ny back into the lineup. However, that's not the reason for this sidenote. I got to meet my hockey idol, Ray Bourque, while we were down there. Ya see, his son, Chris, is a freshman forward on BU and we were all staying at the same hotel and I got a chance to talk to him for a bit. That was a real thrill...
I hate the new officiating rules! There's no way in hell that I should be leading our team in penalties. I'm friggin getting called for interference every single game, when I'm just doing my job. Totally ridiculous!! They're all stupid calls!! See for yourself this Friday night, at 7:30pm ET, when we take on Ferris State. For those of you in Ann Arbor, Comcast's airing the game, so check your local listings.
How 'bout those SOX!! Being a New Englander, you have no idea how excited I am that 1) we're in the World Series and 2) we're up 2 games to none!! Keep your fingers crossed!!
OK, gotta go. It's trivia night at Connors. Gotta jet. Later!
