A Busy Time
This time of the year is a busy one in the sports world. The NFL Playoffs, NBA, NHL, College Basketball, College Hockey and of course High School Basketball and Hockey. The High School Hockey season has been wild. It seems this year is as unpredictable as ever. On any given day 1 team can knock off another and as the season progresses, it will be interesting to see which teams emerge as the front runners. Coaches will tell you it starts between the pipes. Which goalie will step up to the plate and take charge? The Road to Ingalls Rink in my mind is wide open in all 3 divisions.
In Basketball, the games continue to be close and exciting. Many times, the records of the teams don't seem to matter. The Road to the Mohegan Sun Arena is still open for many teams in both boys and girls.
