I think I did a dumb thing.

I started Fantasy Hockey. I probably shouldn't have done it, but I thought it would be fun. I really think its going to either drive me to drink or want to kill someone.

But I got some cool players with my draft picks I even got the $67 million boy. WOOHOO, let's see how that works out for me....I'm thinking probably not so well.

Here's my team so far. Hope everone enjoys watching me drive myself crazy all season, but really thats not a long ride. I'm just happy I got a whole lot of Tigers. WOOHOO.

It's all about the pink

This was a weekend of hockey, knitting and pink was included with both of those things.

I was knitting at the hockey game this weekend...of course I was, did you expect anything less of me. But I was working on the booties and now a hat. I can't believe it, back to the ususal.

I was watching 2 games our 1st two home games of the season, and yes they were both losing games :-(

I guess, they are just going to have to play all the games on the road. That way we might win all of our games.

Sundays game was "Pink Rink" night, it was for breast cancer awareness, the players used pink sticks and they auctioned them off, I think they said they raised over $7000.00 for everything that they did that night. It was a good cause so we dressed in pink to support this good cause. And I happily donated to the cause as well. Last weekend, we actually did the breast cancer walk and as a group we raised over $2000.00, so again, I think we did.

Here are some pictures of the pink sticks. Hope everyone enjoys.

Stupid Booties.

I've made and ripped out the same pair of baby booties 4 times. I hate the pattern I have!!!

Everytime I get them finished, I just don't like they way they look. If someone else has a pattern I would be forever grateful.

Sorry, just wanted to share my frustration.

Have a nice day.

1st weekend of Hockey.

It was a very long weekend.

1st after work on friday we saw our 1st regular season game. It was the Hartford Wolfpack vs Bridgeport Soundtigers. (the big instate rivals)

They squeaked out a win with 5 unanswered goals in the 3rd winning 6-3, it was looking a little scary for a while but they pulled it off.

Saturday we went to the 2nd game of the seaons in Wilkes-Barre PA. That game didn't turn out quite the way we wanted it to.

They lost 4-1, but in other good New's the Islander's won a game with the same score 4-1. woohoo, I guess if the $67million boy dosen't play we win.

But after driving home from PA saturday night, I got up early sunday morning and did a Breast Cancer walk in Harford, so, a 3 hour drive from PA, a 1 hour drive to Hartford, and 5 miles and 230.00 later, I'm home and 1/2 asleep.

The only good thing is, I finished the scarf that I'm going to wear to "Pink Rink" night on Sunday. It should be a fun game, the players are wearing Pink jersey's and gloves, and using Pink sticks. I can't wait to take pictures.....big burly hockey players wearing pink. It's going to be funny.

Ok, we went last evening to our annual hockey fun cruise with the players, but unfortunatly due to a broken boat, the cruise was cancelled :-( so they had to do some last minute scrambling and deceided to have the event at the arena instead.

So we went to the arena, and got to see a few old of the guys that have been with the team for a couple of years now.

Two players specifically, they love to hate us, and thats ok, The 1st words out of Matt Koalska's mouth were, here comes trouble, but thats what he always says to us, and Steve Regier, just put his head down and shook it. It truely was the funniest thing, I've seen in a while.

Two grown players for the New York Islander's, scared of a few girls.

Ok they really weren't scared, but you have to know the two of them to really appriciate how funny they really are.

All-in-all, it was a great night, and we had a fun time. Can't wait till the home opener, it'll be here soon enough.

I did a bad thing.

Ok, I did a bad thing today,

I frogged a little bit....ok, alot. I ripped out both sweaters I'm working on. I think the green sweater was knitting to tight and I didn't like the way it was coming out, so there it went. Gone.

The 2nd thing that I did, was a the elusive orange sweater. It's gone and never to return. So know I have a whole lot of orange yarn, that I have to find something to do with it.

It's a wostered, it's kinda shiny, and pretty, and very soft. It's an acrylic, but it looks like it could be silk. I fell in love with it, but I just can't do anything with the stuff.

Well, live and learn right?

Happy Knitting.

Started something else.

Ok, so the A.D.D. kicked in and I just couldn't help myself. I found the prettiest hunter green chunky yarn.

I didn't know what I was going to do with it to begin with so I figured, I just knit a nice warm winter sweater, nothing exciting or fancy, just plain with raglan sleeves, something to throw on when you are freezing (kinda like right now) I'm not ready for summer to be over yet, I hate the winter.

Also, I started a quick little scarf for myself, nothing exiciting there either, but I am doing a breast cancer walk on sunday, and I wanted to knit a pink scarf to wear, got about 1/2 of it done, but it'll be done on sunday so that's all that matters.

10 Comandments of hockey

Since opening day is less than a week away, I'd figure I'd share them with you. Ok, I need to work on a few of them, but what's a girl to do. At least it dosent say you can't knit and watch at the same time.

1. Thou shall keep thy butt in Thou's seat whenever the puck is in Play.

2. Thou shall not put any team before the home team.

3. Thou shall dress appropriatley so that one can be recognized for which team you are allienced
to, and so that there will be no need for fixing hair,makeup, and assorted bra-straps during the game.

4. Thou shall not have disruptive electronic communicative devices at your seat during the hockey game.

5. Thou shall not covet the visiting teams players.

6. Thou shall let others fully express themselves at all times during a hockey game.

7. Thou shall do everything humanly possible to disrupt the opposing goaltender.

8. Thou shall take the ref's name in vain.

9. Thou shalt not die during a hockey game.

10. Thou shalt cheer as hard as possible for the home team no matter what he score is, no matter what the season record is.
