Today is the beginning of the NCAA's final four of Men's Ice Hockey, known as the "Frozen Four". Its the first time this event has been in our area. I was lucky enough to have my name pulled out of the hat by the NCAA and got tickets to both semi-final games today as well as the finals on Saturday. I've never seen a college hockey game before, so I'm looking forward to the new experience. Tonight's game are on ESPN2 at 5:30 and 8 if you are interested. I'm seeing this as one of those experiences I can check off my "hockey player to do list". I've been pretty lucky as a player over the last 4 years and done some really cool stuff, (i.e. playing pond hockey, assisting on an overtime game winner in the playoffs, scoring a goal in front of my parents), but this will certainly be a highlight for me. We will also have the opportunity to hang out with a bunch of our hockey friends(as it seems they all got tickets as well). It should be a memorable weekend. By the way, I'm pulling for Miami of Ohio. They were a low seed, and they wear red. GO HAWKS!
