Game two tonight

It's a good day today folks. The sun is shining, spring is in the air and playoff hockey is upon us.

I'm having a great day myself. I slept in a bit this morning and instead of having breakfast I had brunch. I love brunch. It's not often that I get to enjoy it but man it's good. Cereal, muffins, toast, fruit, juice all at 10:30am. Yep, I love brunch.


I really enjoyed listening to last night's game on GX94. Every play-by-play guy uses his own vocabulary and is different to listen to and I enjoy a little Craig Stein on the radio. One line that he used was "holy smokes!" He was referring to a move that Jordan Braid made in the game and it made me smile and chuckle to myself. Entertaining and one I hadn't heard in a while.


I was flipping back during stoppages to Dan O'Connor and his call of the Stars/Wolves game 1. Again, he's got a unique sound and I enjoy listening to him too.


I was even lucky enough to be able to get the signal from The Fan 960 in Calgary on my radio last night in the car. Peter Mahr had the Flames and Sharks and he is truly one of the best there is. It's a treat to be able to just drive around Saskatoon and listen to so much hockey.


Tonight GX94 has the MJHL on the radio but will pick up the Klippers in between periods and after the game is over. Craig Stein thinks we should get the last half of the Klipper/Terrier game due to the time change unless there is overtime in Manitoba. Good news.

The Braid goal was just like something scripted in a movie. Unreal. There was a scramble in front and then a clearing attempt. He gloved it down at the left point, dropped it to his stick and blasted a howitzer right back at the net through traffic. It was pretty damn cool.
