Today’s blog posting music is: Fitz and the Tantrums
So I guess we aren’t all set just yet as we aren’t in Estevan just yet. But we will be on the road again here in about 20 minutes as we stayed in Weyburn over night and will finish the drive here soon. The Showcase games start with La Ringe in action at 11am against Weyburn. The late game, which is played after the Stars game will feature a very good looking matchup between Humboldt and the home town Estevan Bruins.
I had a good chat with Blake Tatchell, Tim Rollins and Tanner Schwab this morning at breakfast. Blake and I spoke a little about his brother Brody who is playing pretty well for the Midget AAA Stars so far this season. Blake is excited that we will be back in town Saturday night early enough, if everything goes according to plan, to see the end of the Midget’s game at the Civic Center. Rollins is excited about seeing his parents who are making the drive from Manitoba to be at the games this weekend. And Schwab, Tatchell and I spoke for a while about the unusual start times this weekend and how the teams have to try to adjust. The usual pregame rituals might have to get changed a little. Which ever team adjusts better and doesn’t let it affect them might be the team that wins.
I will have more on tonight’s Stars game against Yorkton in a blog post to come later on today as the game gets closer. I will also get some pictures of the new rink in Estevan and post them on the blog today as well. You are going to be impressed. I haven’t seen it yet with my own two eyes but I have seen a couple of pics. It looks amazing.
The game between the Stars and Terriers will be live on CJNB/CJNS at 5 tonight. The pregame show stars at 4:45.
