Nick Harper here checking in for my second blog post of the year. Since our fall break began Thursday, these last few days at home have been great. It's nice to hang around at home with family and friends not having to worry about schoolwork. These breaks always go by fast but since hockey season begins in about a week, it makes it a whole lot easier.
I think this is the best time of year for sports. First off, you have football already a few weeks in so every Sunday you have games to look forward to. Secondly, it's playoff baseball which is always exciting to watch. Especially for me this year consider my New York Mets are in the playoffs for the first time since 2006. The boys had a big 3-1 W Friday against the Dodgers so hopefully they can carry that momentum into the rest of the series. Lastly, the NHL just began so it's great to be able to watch all the games. Unfortunately as an Anaheim Ducks fan, I don't get to see them on TV too often.
As I mentioned earlier, our season officially starts in about a week, October 19th to be exact. Our skates have been fun and good, however it's about time for the season to start so we can stop talking about it, and actually get after our goal of being a championship team. All of the boys just can't wait until October 30th and 31st so we can get our first SUNYAC win, and first home win.
That's all from me today! Until next time.
