Cats defeat Fuel to win championship

alexinprogressWell I missed the first 3 minutes and the first goal of the game as the team from Indianapolis initiated the scoring

The Wildcats would tie the game…the Fuel would race back into the lead…on a power play goal making it 2-1…the NorthPittsburgh team would then level the score at 2 before taking a 3-2 lead into the third period .

That lead was gone just in the first minute of the third period…the Fuel had their legs moving…the wildcats were spectators as they watched their goalie make 5 straight saves before the Fuel potted the puck and tying the game

Two more goals for the Wildcats put them up 5-3…with about 5 minutes left in the third period . And that is when it got interesting…The Wildcats went into defensive mode…and well that gave the Fuel enough chances to get back in the game ….to me it made no sense because for the entire game Pittsburgh dominated time of posession….and like I said it got interesting as the Fuel went 5 hole to make it 5-4 . The Cats continued to play …ice the puck …and were very fortunate to come away with the win and the championship

Surprise snow

Woke up to about 4 inches of unsuspected snow…temperature around 25…and the sad part of the story is temps werregoing up to near 40 and same for the next day…so I knew the snow would not last…so I took the opportunity that Mother Nature had given me…and went out and shot a few images…For all you winter haters…embrace the cold…It makes me feel alive…breathe in that fresh cold air…that will wake you up…there is more oxygen in the air…dress for the cold…go out and look around…you might be surprised what you see…you may even enjoy it.

I am not a fan of warm weather…and would bitch and moan…but over the past 5 years or so…I learned to deal with it in a peaceful fashion…I just accept it…get out early while temps are at their lowest…have a moscow mule…make some margarita cupcakes…just roll with the tide

Anyway…a few images

Bird Week

yesterday was groundgog day…and Phil Kessel did see his shadow…as well as the Phil from Punxutawny…so Phil is predicting 6 more weeks of winter…I think he is right in this case…but I believe over the course of history phil is accurate only 36 percent of the time

Yesterday was also World Ukulele Day…so if you have a uke…hope you got to play.it…I learned to play Coldplays …Vita La Vida… a simple version…but for me there really is no such simple version as i am definitely musically challenged….I had a hard time remembering the strum pattern…but the on e fellow who has a youtube tutorial on this song…says you strum like…and he used these words…and it kind of sticks…I dont like this cheese…in my soup…much…hey whatever helps me out…and keeping it fun

and my pictures look like it was bird week…not planned…just turne out that way…chickens can be really pretty..I know some people keep them as pets

Enjoy your weekend
