• RIT Hockey vs. Army Black Knights

    This weekend Tracy and I decided to go to the RIT hockey games. There were two of them, Friday and Saturday. RIT won both of them despite having a down year so far. The first game was a 6-0 win, which really didn’t reflect how Army played. RIT got off to a 2-0 lead about minute and a half into the game and never looked back. The second game was closer, 4-3 and Army put on a lot of pressure at the end. Both games saw a penalty shot, one for each team, but nobody scored on either. It was fun, and they were good games. RIT is 12-03 against Army in it’s last 15, so it was the right weekend to go if you like winning.

  • New Years in State College

    Tracy and I visited Gwen and Mike and the kids in State College for new Years this year. We had a great time. The kids enjoyed playing with their presents, Mike made a great warm fire, and Gwen and Mike both made delicious food. It was nice and snowy too, I like the snow. We went for a few walks, and also went to see the ice sculptures being made downtown as part of the New Year’s celebration. Gwen snagged herself a swell sculpture of her own!

    Then after that we went to the Penn State Michigan State NCAA Basketball game. Penn State played really well in the first half, and was up 47-40 at the half. But then #5 ranked Michigan State rallied going on a 10-0 run to start the second half and never looked back as they won the game. Still fun though. After we went home and played Cards Against Humanity for New Years. Then sleep.

    Here’s a few photos.
