it's a major award
\\Joe Lunghammer confessed, “I’d never heard of the University of Michigan — but I’d heard of Gordie Howe! And I figured, if he plays that close to Ann Arbor, we can go see him play. And that’s how I picked Michigan.”//
Unfortunate news to take your mind off the plight of Michigan football and the problems of the athletic department this evening:
Hockey legend Gordie Howe, 86, suffered a serious stroke Sunday in Texas, and has lost some function on one side of his body and has difficulty speaking.
Regardless of your affinity for professional hockey, it's amazing that this man was a pillar of the sporting world for decades. Hopefully he can remain comfortable, at peace and surrounded by his family during this incredibly difficult time.
We'll see if I can manage to post this through the post-State 50x issues.
M Hockey is at Boston U, game has started.
Also Red Wings @ Flyers on FSD.
Game on! Let's Go Blue! Let's Go Red Wings!
Well WolverineDevotee has sworn off mgoblogging and I haven't seen CenterIce much this year. Perhaps this will be me talking to myself...
#14 Michigan (1-2-0) at #7 UMass-Lowell (2-0-1).
Michigan should probably be happy with a split this weekend (also @ #12 BU). Lets see how this goes. JT Compher is playing tonight FWIW (he was in doubt).
I am going to be in Boston this weekend and am planning to go to watch Michigan take on BU on Saturday night. Does anyone know if there is a section (informal or not) where there may be a concentration of Michigan fans? I haven't ever been to their hockey arena and would like to be around some other Michigan supporters.
9 goals given up in two regular season games.
Horrific start. Hoping tonight is where it gets better.
Puck drop at 7:35
