It is the last day of September, and the weather has been absolutely phenomenal lately. Funny story to start the week, golfed on Friday – and while looking through my favorite

My first thought was what are the odds – my golf partner said well the odds are pretty good since your the only person I know that hits this wooded area every time we play this hole. Well played buddy, well played.

If you have watched hockey since birth, then you shouldn’t be questioning many of these items. Hockey year round? That would be a gift from hockey gods. Unbalanced conferences?

Just one more day – tomorrow officially starts the regular season. Game on!
