OFF TO THE OLYMPICS, Tom Brokaw explains Canada to Americans, BCHL Awards out today..
I'm joining up with the Bulldogs today as they head over to Vancouver to "soak up" some of the Olympic spirit.
What else to do as a team when you have a couple weeks off!
A cool idea by the coaching staff to get the team out as a group to have some fun.
Don't worry, they'll be working hard to keep focused during the bye....you can't practice ALL the time though.
I'm looking forward to seeing some Olympic Hockey for the first time in my life.
Right now, it's the Swedes vs the Czechs. I'm working on Canada vs Russia, which would be the experience of a LIFETIME!
This has been emailed to me about 50 times over the last week. What a great job by Tom Brokaw...
Don't forget the BCHL Awards announcement sometime today.
The Dogs are nominated 7 times:
Mitch MacMillan and Frank Slubowski for MVP.
Frank Slubowski and Mark MacMillan for Rookie of the Year
Kevin Ross for Top Defenceman and Most Sportsmanlike Player
Nolan Graham for Coach of the Year.
The player awards are all way to close to call..the coach of year award?
They've had that one engraved with "Nolan Graham" for a quite a while now....just in my humble opinion of course!
And last but not least don't forget the Fan/Family Appreciation Skate with the Bulldogs on Saturday!

Have a great day!
