For that, I'm thankful to be a hockey parent.

Enjoy the time, it goes by way to fast. Trust me.
No matter if you're a hockey parent or not, this advice holds true for any involvement in our children's lives.

No argument there peter. I actually work swing shift just so I can raise my kids and avoid daycare. I have been blessed to experience and help my children develop and grow. I know I will cry when my first graduates hs and college as I will likely with all of them.

Als point I couldnt agree more hockey is a game of codes and honor. The codes and honor are based on respect. Couple this with a sense of sacrifice you don't find in most other sports. The player who takes a hit to get his teamate the puck, the player who dives to block a shot, etc. All this translates to building character of sacrafice and working for the greater good. Out of all the sports football, baseball, basketball and hockey I would argue that these qualities make hockey players are the least likely to get arrested, the most respectful. Creating young men and women with honor respect and character.

Hockey is a true every-persons game. Its amazing seeing all the different characters that create a team. Gentlemen, Goons, Plugs... The true joy in coaching is getting everyone with different personalities to mingle as one.

Looks like the boys are 2-1! That last loss, looks like your boys let one in early and then couldn't find the back of the net. I assume that knocked you out. There is no bracket, so I cannot see how things play out....

Anyway, nice job!

Mitch went to Arizona State and got to skate a practice with the team.

He said he had a great time.

Looking forward to full details when he returns.

Al, Arizona has a d1 &d2 team. Do you know which one?
The d2 team plays sjsu. SJSU plays its home games where Micah skates. I would have no issues being his fan club if he comes. Rocking signs etc. . I could even get some kids from micahs team. Not sure how the d1 d2 thing works there. Didnt even know a school could have both a d2 and d1 team.

Oooo and agreed EJ. To say Tempe has some hot women is putting it mildly. Head on a swivel.

They totally noobed up that schedule. I think only one of my kids' games were broadcast, and during game that we learned they were listed and being called the "Quad City Steam"

lol

It was a tough weekend, our boys went 2-5, but they were against some very good AAA teams.

Yea, needed to go 3-0 to move on... Oh well. 1-0 loss to a team a division higher than us in regular season is a solid effort!

Now back to the regular season! If you guys want to keep track of our season, go to Ottawaminorhockey.com then go to leagues/b league/peewee (not MINOR PEEWEE!) Thats us near the top :P...

2-5 record is def much better than a 0-7 record! AAA tourneys vary all over the place with skill level...
