Ahh, yes. It's the first weekend in October. Early Christmas for puckheads - the college season gets underway, and the NHL is just around the corner. Drink it in. We're ready for five months of fun or heartache. Or both. Probably both.
The women open their season this weekend with very little pressure against one of the best teams in the nation as they welcome the University of North Dakota to the friendly confines of the Houston Field House. Meanwhile, the men have their exhibition game against St. Thomas, a Canadian school from New Brunswick. Get thee to the Field House, ladies and gentlemen. Hockey season is upon us.
Reasonably certain I've used this for an early season pump-up in the past, but it works on so many levels that... whatever. Let's run with it.
