Believe it or not, we're getting closer.
Our friend Donna at RWD has the countdown clock running (on the bottom of the page, oddly) up to the Bulldogs' season opener at Lake Superior State Oct. 8 -- a game she will lamely not be attending.
Don't worry. She can still listen to the game on 94X, as I will be attending.
Even better, the Bulldogs are going to be practicing at the DECC Tuesday afternoon.
Yes, the DECC.
It's the final half-season of hockey in the old barn, and they have put the ice in. The Bulldog women play next weekend, so the men have taken advantage of the early installation of ice to work out in the friendly confines, as opposed to skating on campus.
Since this new site for captain's practice is not far from my office in Canal Park, it's even money that I'll be checking the place out at some point this week.
