My Ice Dragons Season in Review

By | August 13, 2011

The gloves are still drying from the final game of the Ice Dragons playoff game last night and the wound of this loss is going to take months to heal. For the second year in the row the Ice Dragons were ousted from the EMHL summer coed post season by the AMS Shredders in a… Read More »

My Non Superstitious Playoff Run

By | June 16, 2011

For better or worse the 2011 NHL Playoffs have come to a close. I was able to watch the Vancouver Canucks play until the middle of June, and with a game almost every other night I had it all.

My Year Beard

By | May 12, 2010

Same team. Out in the same number of games. Shaving the beard on the same day. I thought the lessons that were learned on May 11, 2009 would have helped the Canucks and I. However, history repeats itself and now there are a summer of questions. This year the beard lasted 27 days, April 15… Read More »

My Beard Return

My Second Round Dog

By | April 23, 2009

The Vancouver Canucks live to see another round. It may have been over in four games but it was anything but a lopsided series. St. Louis fought extremely hard and played an aggressive series. Had it not been for Luongo’s goal tending performance and the lackluster Power Play from the Blues this could have easily… Read More »

My Seasonal Addiction

By | September 13, 2007

NHL Shield (v2)Hockey is back! And in addition to new jerseys for all 30 NHL teams the latest installment of NHL 08 was released for consoles and PC this week. I prefer to do my NHL gaming on XBOX so when I was looking up information on the cost of the game for XBOX I… Read More »

My Little Bird

By | April 25, 2007

Today has been one of those days where it clicked. Allow me to recap the last six hours of it. In the afternoon the new song from The White Stripes Icky Thump was released to the airwaves and I was able to get my hand on a digital copy where I listened to it over… Read More »
