Hello, hello. Last game at Xcel for a couple weeks for me, I'm covering some Gopher basketball again then it's back to business as usual. Also might be covering some figure skating in a few weeks, then I head back to the US Pond Hockey Championships on Lake Nokomis so an exciting January is ahead of me! Most recent game had the Detroit Red Wings visiting, an Original Six team, and they also hold the longest active streak in sports for playoff appearances at 24. Just to give context, there have been 8 NHL teams that have joined the league in the 24 years Detroit has been making the playoffs (bonus points if you can name all 8 without looking it up). Insane.
I was in one corner for the whole game and to be honest I wasn't a fan the stuff I shot, I know I can do better but it was just an off night for me. Thankfully it's a long season and I'll have many more opportunities to keep improving, but Monday night just wasn't one of those nights.
That's all for me. Saturday I'll be at Williams Arena (college basketball) for the Michigan State vs. Minnesota game, barring an upset by Iowa tonight Michigan State will be ranked #1 when they come here. Looking forward to the opportunity!
