Back…Great Weekend of Swimming & Hockey…

First things first…congratulations to my daughter Aiden for doing very well in her lone event at the Oregon 10 and Under State Championships in Springfield on Saturday.

She is shown above doing her best to chase down the leader in her heat of the 100 yard Butterfly.  She went in with a seed time of 1:48:52 and she took close to three seconds off of that time at State, posting a 1:45:72, a very good swim.

Her Mom and I are quite proud as Aiden didn’t have a qualifying time in this event until mid-January and since she posted her first time then, she has dropped six seconds in the event in a little over a month…remarkable.

I want to thank the Winterhawks for letting me take the night off and to Todd and Dean Vrooman for filling in so I could go and watch the meet.

Speaking of the “Vroo-men”…they did a great job calling the 3-2 win for the Hawks over the Kelowna Rockets Saturday night.  I only got to listen to the third period, but it sounded like a great rally for the team and a nice recovery after dropping two games heading into the game.

The Hawks will look to make it two straight over the Tri City Americans on Tuesday night in Kennewick.

Haven’t the Olympics been great?  I mean, the hockey has been tremendous, especially the Canada/USA showdown yesterday afternoon.  And we still have the medal round to go.

I may be bias, but I have a hard time figuring out how anyone can think that there is a sport with more excitement and action than a hockey game, especially at that level.

Luca Sbisa and his Swiss teammates must knock off Norway to get another shot at USA in the quarter finals.   That game will be tomorrow at 12/noon PST.

That’s it for now…more later this week…
