I was born on this day and my favourite musical performer for those that may no know is Bruce Springsteen. So it’s fitting to have today’s music video to be Born To Run by Bruce. Who know’s, I might feature him the whole month!

I want to thank my partner in crime Dave Lasseter for recapping last night’s disappointing loss. The season of excuses is well on it’s way and there really isn’t much more that I could say about last nights game that hasn’t already been said. We are finding our very quickly that the early season predictions are most likely going to prove accurate. With no goal scorer sniper on the team, and players that couldn’t hit water if they fell out of a boat, we continue to make most goalies look as though they are Vezina Trophy candidates. Little Stevie looks timid, but that’s really nothing new. And why is he wearing the “A”? Unless now it stands for asshat! Thanks Dave. Frolik is inconsistent, and Higgins is well somewhere, but not on the scoresheet. It’s going to be a long season boys and girls, so like I said back in September, manage your expectations. Of course doing some 12 ounce curls will help as well. (Please drive responsibly).
