Border Battle

The regular season for college hockey nears the end, in fact I believe three conferences are already going into the playoffs. Alaska will be down in Sault Ste Marie to take on Lake State in a best of three.

Meanwhile, just slightly closer to home, the Golden Gophers look to wrap up the WCHA and take home the MacNaughton Cup this weekend as they battle with the damn Badgers of Wisconsin. Should be some great hockey.

I’m in full hockey mode after a rockin’ game last weekend between Alaska and Anchorage, and am already anxious to fly out of Fairbanks. I think it’s just the time of the year. Winter is still hanging on, but we’re all looking to forward to the long days of May. It was fifteen below zero again this morning, and my first reaction when I looked at the thermometer was to think, “Well, at least it isn’t cold.” That’s just messed up!

I have no right to claim cabin fever this year, but I’m going to do it anyway. I wonder what the penalty would be to move my flight up a week or so?
