Happy Movember Hockey Fans,
Jamie Young checking in here for another blog post on this young season.
Well, the boys had a tough one this weekend up in the North Country. Dropping two games this weekend to Plattsburgh and Potsdam was far from ideal but its back to work on Monday for two against Morrisville this Friday and Saturday. The boys know how important winning SUNYAC points are every night, so I am confident that our close knit group will be back on Monday with a little fire in our belly. Even though I am a huge Texas A&M fan and my Mother would not be happy with me quoting Nick Saban, Alabama's head football coach, he once said: "One thing about championship teams is that they are resilient. No matter what is thrown at them, no matter how deep the hole, they find a way to bounce back and overcome adversity." - I know this team can and will bounce back, so be there this weekend to watch us against the Mustangs.
Finally, I just wanted to let everyone know about a cause some the boys of the team are supporting, and that is Movember. As many of you know last month was Breast cancer awareness month and we do our Pink the Rink game later in the season. But the boys wanted to bring attention to Men's health this November. In an effort to do this we have joined up with the Movember Foundation and started to grow, or at least attempt to, our mustaches and beards in an effort to raise awareness. It is a great cause that brings to light the fact that 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in their lives and also encourages all men to live a healthier more active lifestyle. I will link our team page below, go check out the cause and help spread awareness!!
Well hockey fans, I am signing off for now, hope you can enjoy the last bit of your weekend and have as great a week we will on the ice,
