Watch the puck drop

November 9, 2007

Yesterday at lunch, M. and another little hockey-loving classmate were talking about the Blues, with lots of POWs and BAMs and flailing arms that barely missed the milk.  Although they’re blessedly still too young to know whether their favorite team is good or bad, the Blues are in fact having a decent start to the season.  That makes it all the more fun for parents to get behind a trip waaay out to St. Louis Mills, where Blues practice sessions are open to the public.  Starting Saturday, there’s a six-day run (for times, visit the Ice Zone site).

In case you’re note familiar with the team, here’s a quick primer:  The leading goal-scorer is Brad Boyes, with nine.  When you add up goals and assists (both count as “points” in hockey), the leader is Paul Kariya.  Right up there too is fan favorite Keith Tckachuk.  In our household, the favorites are Doug Weight (my hockey-playing spouse’s pick for overall attitude) and Jamal Mayers (my pick for overall cuteness).
