Border War hockey "game" – a shared dream some of us had where we thought the University of Kansas had a hockey team, but then we woke up and all was right with the world again – one could only imagine what kind of exciting hockey events could be on the horizon for our metro area. Well, here ya go.
Friday, January 18th, 2013, at Independence Events Center, the University of Missouri hockey club will play against members of the St. Louis Blues Alumni. Who is on that team? Who knows! Could be any number of players! Phil Housley! Derek Armstrong! Tommy Barrasso! Charlie Huddy! Wayne Gretzky!!! What an amazing lineup, I can't see why none of those guys won't play! Anyway, there's probably more info coming on this event, so keep a look out.
Remember when Mizzou and Kansas were supposed to play on January 17th of next month? Yeah, I don't know if that's going to happen now, but this other thing is, so yay!
UPDATE: Oh, I guess some of the players include Jon Casey, Tony Twist, and Darren Pang. Oh well.
