Just a reminder that this Friday, January 20th, the University of Missouri and University of Kansas club hockey teams are holding their annual Independence Events Center Border War game at 7:05. You can get tickets here.
According to the Mid-America Collegiate Hockey Association website, Mizzou hockey is 9-2-1 so far this season, while Kansas hockey is 0-14. So, come on out and see if Kansas wins their first game of the season...or see how badly Mizzou beats the Jayhawks into submission. The choice is yours, really. Just GO! (Plus, if you are into fights, hhhoooooooo boy let me tell you, these teams fight! It's all in good fun though, so just sit back and enjoy the carnage. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll learn something about yourself.)
Speaking of collegiate hockey, as explained by pucKChaser, tickets to the October 12th-13th IceBreaker Tournament are ON SALE NOW. I think he explains the fun and importance of the tournament in KC better than I could, so just click on that hotlink at the top of this paragraph. You can also learn more about the tourney and get your tickets here.
Also, just a personal note, I am humbled to be mentioned by two KC hockey blogs that have been at it for a long time and have done and continue to do awesome jobs. Aaron Stilley at the NHL in Kansas City and pucKChaser's blog ("blogger" sounds so formal) both know their KC hockey history and understand the current climate of not only NHL hockey, but local hockey too. Please read these folks if you have not already. Read their archives, read any other stuff they do. They know what they are talking about. It's like I'm Charlie Brown and they are two different "little red-haired girls" that just noticed me...um, not saying that they are little red-haired girls or anything, err, nor does that imply they are two-dimensional cartoon characters... umm...yeah, disregard that last comment.
But, really, it is a thrill to be a part of the volatile but hopeful Kansas City hockey online community. Please, if you have opinions, comments, suggestions, etc. please do not hesitate to post them here. All suggestions are welcome.
