    I am going to put this up in my office...words to live by for sure my dear friend Fishcore.

    Last year the top 75 forwards on the CSB's Final ranking were invited. This year, they invited the top 76. That seems a bit odd. They aren't going to invite everyone, so there has to be a cutoff. Why move it by one position? Knsmith's suggestion makes sense to me. I agree that Pat deserves it, but that isn't the question.

    That's quite possible.

    Today is 4 May 2011. There are 150 days until RPI's next game.


    This is based upon 1 October for the start of next season.

    That is the day that an exhibition game is supposedly scheduled.

    Back to the hunt for JL and bringing him back to Troy. Saw a car from ontario the other day coming home from a trip but it wasnt a 20 year old scoring machine, it was just two old people.

    Hokydad's good friend Bobby Orr was also there. Please see Hokydad's quote on his friendship with Bobby Orr. Comedy gold.
