Class in session with Chaz...........

I was caught up with homework and I forced the play. I was able to complete though, which I have this man to thank:

As my Fredonians friends would know, it's snowing a lot over here. So my question is what should my winter look be? Now the boys on the team I can't dress myself to save my life. That's why I get my dad to dress me everyday.
Here's a pic of the old man: 

Here's a guy you can ask a question to, and he'll have just the answer for yea. That's why he's got the receder, that's not just there for show.
 What look should I go with for the winter of 2014?
Option #1
By the way, I know I look intimidating but I'm just heavy on the eyes.
Option #2
Or Option #3
Only you will decide.
Also I would like to give a shout out to Mike Hehr, a Fredonia Alumni who is now coaching the furious Canton Kangaroos. In about 5 years this is what I predict he will look like:
And in 10 years:
Homework today to research
Another Person of the day:
Another Song of the day:
Pokemon Theme
Class..... dismissed,

Big weekend ahead......

Today was slower day for the news related to the Fredonia State hockey team, I spent most of my day doing homework.  Today was a good day at practice for the boys as we are gearing up for a big SUNYAC weekend against Brockport and Geneseo with a much needed 4 points on the line.  I am still not ready to play in games but I am definitely looking forward to returning to the lineup and being able to play.  Well I am off to do some more studying before bed

a busy day at class......

Today school was still busy as always for myself, with another night spent up in the learning center, but between my classes and my time spent in the library I was afforded the break as today was my first practice out with the team after my bout with mono.  It was really good to be able to get back out on the ice, I also was lucky as goaltending coach John Cullen stayed out late after practice with me, to help me work on my conditioning.  Also with today being Tuesday it's the weekly episode viewing of Sons of Anarchy in our house as many of the boys take a break from studying and relax and watch the show together.

Everyone is starting to feel the pressure of the semester coming to an end.....

Everyone is starting to feel the pressure of the semester coming to an end especially today, being that it is the first day back after Thanksgiving break.  We didn't an optional skate today after playing Saturday and Sunday this weekend out in Michigan.  I found it a long day for myself as this week has lots in store for me with assignments being due and a couple test before the final exam.  Many other teammates are feeling the same and buckling down in the Learning Center tonight as I spent most of my night in the Learning Center after dinner with teammates Ryan Edens and myself working on math, while John DeFeo and Mitch Kaufmann worked hard on Physics at a table nearby.  Its good to see all the boys working hard on their schoolwork as many other teammates were already in the library when I arrived, we are all getting ready for the final push as we head into the last couple weeks of class.

Michigan Alumni with Coach Meredith

Prior to our game in Ann Arbor, MI with the US Under 18 team, I had a chance to meet with several of our hockey alumni.  In the picture, from L to R: Bruce McGee, myself, Mike Dempsey and Bryan Green along with some of their children.

Also at the game was Noah Seidenberg with his son, Ethan and the entire Lupu family.

It was great to see them and meet their kids.
