I was a dreamer.
Though for the most part Carolina made a good go of it, they were simply overmatched. The bubble may have burst with that heartbreaking triple OT loss in game 3. Howard was dead-on with his prediction and my streak of being wrong is still intact. Fortunately, I'm not a betting man.
So, how many days is it exactly until the 2002-2003 season begins?
Charles A: Media criticism of the US soccer squad might be a bit much considering they barely pay any attention to the sport in the first place, but the team's play has been getting steadily worse since their upset of Portugal. Hopefully, they'll respond by coming out recharged against Mexico on Monday. I'm almost sure the players are following US coverage of the World Cup.
Charles T: In response to the shooting drill you diagrammed, I never minded as long as I could get set for the initial shot. Of course, it sucked when another shooter let loose with a different puck a millisecond after a save. Not so sure about players announcing the shot placement though. That doesn't seem beneficial in improving overall goaltending skills.
