Brad May, an injured Duck had the time of his life yesterday riding on a float in the Rose Bowl Parade. It won the "Governor's Award for the Best Depiction of Life in California." He was accompanied by the 115 year old Stanley Cup. The Rose Parade is 119 years old and it was the first time Stanley and Rose have met!
Drew Miller, the rookie Duck out of MSU, watched his brother Ryan playing in Buffalo yesterday. While Ryan was in the snow, Drew had a high of 68 degrees and sunny in Anaheim.
The AMP NHL Classic was won by Pittsburgh in a shootout… thank you Sydney Crosby for sharing the memories of pond hockey and the feeling of being a super star, but mostly of still being a kid.
Will someone get behind the idea of a double header at Ohio Stadium? Would this not be a great afternoon with the warm up band of an OSU-Michigan Hockey game, with a drop of the puck at 3 p.m. then a tailgate with thousands with grills and socializing… then the CBJ-Red Wing game to follow at 7:30pm… Go Bucks and Jackets!!
