The Blue/White game is here!
Mike Freeman here with another blog!
This Saturday is the annual Fredonia Hockey Blue/White game and the boys and myself couldn’t be more excited. Last year as a freshman, I couldn’t wait to pull on the Fredonia sweater for the first time. Now, as a sophomore, the excitement definitely hasn’t faded, but has multiplied. Now that I know the ins and outs of being a Blue Devil, I am ready to get back to work and have the season get underway. It feels like years since I’ve had to opportunity to wear the Blue Devils’ sweater, so I’m pumped to get to wear it in a real game situation this Saturday.
The Blue/White game is a perfect tune up because of how professionally it is run. There are actual referees that officiate the game and full 20 minute stop-time periods. Although it is an intrasquad scrimmage, everybody treats is as if it were a real game that counts in the standings. It is, after all, the last chance you have to audition for your spot on the team, and everybody knows that. The beauty of our team is that nobody feels cemented in their spot. We all feel that there is loads of healthy competition in our dressing room, and that really pushes the guys to be the best they can be. Because if they’re not, somebody is going to step right in and steal their job. We are all very excited to see what this years Blue/White game has in store.
See you next time,
