this summer...

i have not blogged in a long time. amongst events that i can recall - went to a great "tv on the radio" concert, holidays with tressa, tim's bachelor party, bought a wii, won a street hockey tournament, went to a wedding in tisdale


street hockey champs

last friday, july 24th, a crew of my company's finest hockey players competed in the stantec sticks on 23rd charity street hockey tournament. i am not sure the number of teams (though math would tell me 16), but we somehow came out on top.

there were some solid teams - like a U of S Husky squad and a Saskatoon Blazers team. we went 4-0 to become A Side Champs and win a nice Stanley Cup replica (for the year) which we carried around proudly.

each team had one WHL or NHL player - including Colby Armstrong and Luke Schenn. Our representative was tampa bay prospect blair jones - who was a big component in us winning, though our entire team played solid and i potted my share of goals.

music thoughts

a few hours after arriving from mexico, i saw luke doucet play at the broadway theater. it was a very good show, though i was disappointed that nothing from "aloha, manitoba" was played.

Words of Wisdom

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not "Eureka!" (I found it!) but "That's funny..."

Tom Petty - Waiting For Tonight ()

Just out walking, letting my mind roam
If she hung around too much I might take her for granted
But when I was away, she seemed an angel
The only one who really cared about me
The only one without an angle
For so long I've been lonely
Now I'm too weak to fight

I've been waiting for tonight
I've been waiting for tonight
