1/18/07 Catching up
Wow, long time no post! alot has happend since the Start of the 2006-2007 season. I dont even know where to start; to catch anyone up; we had a great start to our season, won a lot of games in a row (6), but then we went down hill. We have been battling ever since, but we are still in good standing. Most of our players are really young, but we still have some veterans (like Scott Burt, & Marty Flichel) on December 9th 2006 Jeremy Mylymok (#4) had a retirement ceremony,during the second intermission at the game. His Jersey has not made it up next to cal's,but we are working on that! I missed a lot this season, due to work and finacial issues, The Meet N' Greet, well I was sick and Highly Contagious, First Skate with the players had to work. I did manage to make it too the Christmas party though, and man it had to be the best on yet, I sat next to Rookie Goaltender John Daigneau and his fellow team-mate Goalie Steve Silverthorn. Travis Wight's dance (To Smack that, by akon) had to be the coolest thing. We just had our all star game 2007 here in Boise Wednesday night (Which was awesome) There are a lot of young talented players around our League. The National Conference (team w/ the steelheads) lost to the american team 6-3. By the game was good (Didnt make the skills compitition.) Well tonight we face off against the Phoenix Roadrunners at 7:10 pm. (hope we seek a little revenge for what their Goalie *Cody Rudowsky* did to John Daigneau the last time these to hockey clubs played! Till Next Time! GO Steelheads Go!
