Jerry is back with some observations about the Pats, the Sox and even the Yankees.
I was searching for one of those clever phrases that just about every sports writer and/or commentator has for whenever they want to revisit events, clarify past statements or just use up leftover ideas that never quite fit in a column. “Empyting the Bench”, “Clearing Out the Notebook”, “Cleaning Off the Desk” , are a few examples that jump quickly to mind. Since I already tend to evoke more than a little randomness in my blogs, it’s probably not necessary, but because I wanted to revisit my last two submissions, and then throw in a few new odds and ends, I came up with a variation on the old reminder from video stores of the past. “So, Let’s all be Kind, and Rewind…” Continue reading →
Jerry Ballgame gives his random thoughts on Boston hockey, the slow start by the Red Sox and even apologizes to Rex Ryan.
HOCKEY YEAR IN BOSTON
If there exists some sort of crown or special title for one city winning both Lord Stanley’s Cup and the Frozen Four in one twelve month stretch, then the Hub, at least for the moment, is sitting rather pretty in the eyes of the hockey universe. I suppose purists will insist that it has to occur in the same calendar year to be considered legitimate, but Boston College winning its third title in five years last weekend is still worth celebrating.
Big League Clu previews the Mens Division 1 Frozen Four, which starts Thursday, April 5th.
Since we have talked about the men’s DIII frozen four and the men’s basketball final four, I figured that we might as well cap off all of the winter/spring championships with the Division I mens Ice Hockey Frozen Four! This year the Frozen Four will take place in Tampa Florida because when I think of Ice Hockey…I think Florida! Another thing to also consider is that the participants are from Michigan, Minnesota, New York or Massachusetts… so there will definitely be some frequent flyer miles used by each school to get down to Tampa (approximately 5,564 miles traveled by the four teams). We do have a couple of household names and a couple of new comers for the semi-final matchups but we will get to that later on… It’s time to get ready for some big time college hockey and the fight to win the National championship, Enjoy!

So upon completion of the first round and quarterfinals of the NCAA DIII Hockey championships, I am following up with the Frozen Four breakdown. The DIII Frozen Four will take place in Lake Placid, NY at Herb Brooks Arena (for those of you who don’t know Herb Brooks, he coached the 1980 Miracle on Ice USA Olympic hockey team), on Friday March 16th. Anyways, lets dive into the Frozen Four match ups shall we?
