Men Competing Against Women

Girl Goalies and Guys’ Egos
If I get down a couple of goals to “la fille”, the guys on my team will go like gangbusters to mount a comeback.  Conversely, the guys on her side frequently seem to be in awe of her stuff, almost letting her get more action on purpose to see if she can handle it.  Then, if they win they seem just as likely to chalk it up to their great goalscoring rather than her goaltending.
This is an interesting take - one that I would never have thought of. Personally, I've never had any problems men competing against me. But then, I wasn't a goalie, either. And I'm a tall girl, too, so that helps.

Just A Reminder....

Connect Puck Talk

Su Ring from Daily Su and I are talking hockey tonight. Join us for some discussions on the NHL, AHL, major junior leagues, international competition - basically, we'll cover whatever's going on as long as it's hockey-related. Su has already talked to some minor league hockey players that she's interviewed before, and they may stop in from time to time.

For those who are new to this, there's a chat room going on as we broadcast, and you can download the podcast later if you miss it. (The chat room is only active and available during the broadcast, however.) Right now, the show is one hour long, but we may expand to two hours if there's enough of a demand. So from here on out, Su and I will be on every Sunday at 11 pm British / 6 pm Eastern / 3 pm Pacific. See you then!

Pac-10 Hockey? Anyone?

The Straight Edge: California ripe for Div. I NCAA hockey
“The first college or university in California (to add hockey) will have an immediate pool of recruits to draw from,” [Paul Kelly] said. “Within a very short period of time, you could be competing for a national title.”
This makes me happy - for many reasons. One, I love the idea of Pac-10 hockey. And believe you me, if the California schools add it, then the Washington schools will, and so on. Two, I love the fact that sunny and warm California is such a hockey hot bed. It gives me spiteful joy. It's always annoyed me that traditionalists think that only places where it snow regularly should have hockey - when the fact is that 99% of all hockey is played on an indoor rink. Three, there just needs to be more college hockey overall. And four...well, I can keep going on, but you get the idea.

Boston Bruins Dating Advice

Boston Bruins say dating Philadelphian women is hairy situation

From the hallowed halls of Puck Daddy comes some sage dating advice for hockey fans everywhere....

It's Finally Happened

Su and I crashed Connect Community Radio a bit late last night, and did our own show on the spur of the moment. So it's completely ad libbed. And it's only an hour long, too. Sorry that it's so Pacific Northwest centric....

Anyways, we've decided - Su and I that is - to start our own show up together. Our friend Juice isn't up for doing a weekly program, and we think that we can do that. We've therefore created our own radio show, and we're kicking it off this coming Sunday at 6 pm Eastern. It's only an hour for starters, and if there's a demand or we feel we're running short on time, we might bump it up to two hours for future shows. We plan on running all through the offseason, too. So feel free to stop in and say hi on the chat room while the show's live, or call in - and you can always download the podcast for later, of course.

So here's the new site for you to bookmark:

And here's Su's site so that you can get to see what she's about:

Hopefully we'll see you next Sunday.
