What a game!
I took a short-ish break from development this afternoon to watch the first semifinal game of the NCAA Frozen Four (Div I), the National Championship in men’s college hockey. As much as I like watching college hockey, I only made time because the Michigan State University Spartans were in this game against the Black Bears of Maine.
Unfortunately, Maine scored only 27 seconds into the game, and then they scored again less than 3 minutes later to take a 2-0 lead in the fourth minute. Fortunately, MSU shut them out for the remaining 56 minutes (and 36 seconds) while scoring 4 goals of its own. It was an excellent and exciting game for the duration and, thanks to TiVo, I was able to watch it in less than real time, omitting the inane chatter and repetition during the two intermissions. Final score: Michigan State 4, Maine 2.
It looks like now I will have to take another break from the crunch on Saturday at 7:00pm (ESPN) for the NCAA National Championship game for Men’s Ice Hockey. One team will be Michigan State, and the other will be either North Dakota or Boston College, depending on the second semifinal (to start within the hour); either way, I know who I will be cheering for.
