    Womens Worlds In Burlington 4/7 - 4/14 Who's Going?

    Mrs 86 and I will be there for the Medal Games on Saturday 4/14. Cannot wait to get there and would love to meet some other USCHO'ers!

    I just might have to take you up on that. We're heading up on Friday 4/13 and will be staying at the La Quinta Inn in South Burlington ... about a mile and a half from Gutterson. Cannot wait to get up there!

    Some of my happiest hockey-related days came when people such as Vetter, Lawler, Duggan, and Knight completed their college eligibility and I could now cheer for them instead of dreading them. Good luck to all former Badgers that have added blue to their hockey colors.

    Haha, I selfishly wish a couple of my former Buckeyes were trading Gray for Blue, but instead they are wearing Maple Leafs on their sweaters. I still love all of them, and will be rooting for my former Buckeyes. I feel like I get to come out a winner regardless of what happens in the gold medal game. I am thinking there will be three Buckeyes involved ... Natalie Spooner and Tessa Bonhomme playing for Canada, and Lisa Chesson playing for the USA. Minttu Tuominen and Emma Laksonnen played for Finland in the Olympics a couple years ago, but I am not sure if they will be playing for Finland at Worlds or not. Emma just became a new Mom, and I haven't seen anything about Minttu playing for Finland on OSU's athletic website, so she may be sitting out Worlds. Annie Svedin has played for Sweden's National Team in some international competitions, but again, have not read anything about her playing for Sweden, so it may just be Bonhomme, Chesson, and Spooner. Should be fun. Mrs 86 and I have been looking forward to this for a while now, although, gotta admit, not looking forward to the 12-hour drive from central Ohio to Burlington, VT. Probably going to need to pack a couple 5-hour energy drinks, then get a couple more in Burlington for the trip back to Ohio (LOL)! I did check on plane travel, but there just are not too many flights going into Burlington, and it's so expensive. We are going to have a blast, though! Can't wait to get there! Dead Red, might have to look you and your friends up!

    Gutterson is everything that's right with college hockey.

    Vintage old barn.

    I'll be there for a lot of the tournament as a volunteer working in media relations. I've got tickets to the US Canada game on opening night!

    I'll be there Saturday night for game 1, USA vs. Canada.

    I'll probably be at Buffalo Wild Wings by 4 PM, getting primed for the 7 PM tilt. Well, not too primed..... have to drive 3 1/2 hours home for Easter right after, ugh.

    Single game tickets are still available online. I just got a pair for Saturday's US Canada tilt.

    Watched it on FASTHOCKEY.com last night. It was a freebie. A lot of the stuff on that website are things you have to pay for, but last night's game was a freebie. Good win for Canada when you consider all the people that they were missing. Should be a great tournament in Burlington in a couple weekends!

    I stand corrected on my Buckeyes. Minttu Tuominen will be suiting up for Team Finland and Annie Svedin will be suiting up for Team Sweden. I'll be there in my OSU hockey sweaters supporting five current/former Buckeyes. Look for the couple with Ohio State hockey sweaters setting in section 25. We'd love to meet some other USCHO members! Here's to safe travel for everyone! We're looking at a 12-hour drive from Ohio, but we'll be fine. Cannot wait to get there! Been looking forward to this for a long time!
