Morning, NHL fans!
I hope your Friday is off to a flying start. The weekend is here, and things are looking up. Even with the bitter cold, this is truly my favorite time of the year. My eight year-old boy will play two games and have two practices between Saturday and Sunday, with a skate-n-shoot thrown in for good measure. We’ll enjoy the Buffalo Sabres -Columbus Blue Jackets game tomorrow night, and who knows? We might just take the three year-old and maybe even the baby girl out on the ice for some Sunday fun.
Yep – hockey season is the best of the two seasons we enjoy every year, the other season being “non-hockey season.”
Speaking of hockey, let’s hit the links, shall we?
