That's what I was hoping for...although I've been out of high school for so long that I can no longer remember what I had against North Allegheny.

I was there, NA mailed it in with almost 5 min left and they were down 2. Their captain while courageous probably should have taken himself off the ice in the last 5 minutes he was too tired and hurt to give any more. But Lebo played well enough to win and did a great job at keeping NA in its zone. The NA goalie played great though.

I've heard that about N.A. this year. All or nothing so to speak. Their Coach resigned half way through the year because he felt he wasn't getting through to the kids. It's amazing to me that they made it as far as they did.

Gotta do better than that Kid :-)

My nephew is class of '08

I do find it amusing that you were born the year after I graduated. :-)

You could be my son :shock:

It's stil lthe same old N.A. though. Mine was the first class to graduate the New School. I spend my Jr. year on Cumberland Road.

Just to let you know how long ago that really is... in Mrs. Rathke's french class we sat on the outside windows and watched Streakers run up and down Cumberland Road one day! :-)

We got us a CONVOY! Did you hear that Good-Buddy? A CONVOY! That's a BIG 10-4 :-)

Saw this in a recent John Buccigross column.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/columns/s ... id=2395457

Hello Mr. Buccigross,


On April 8, I will be playing the biggest hockey game of my life, the Pennsylvania High School State Championship. My team has had an undefeated season so far at 25-0-0 and are looking to extend our win streak to 26. As a man with obvious great taste in music, I was wondering what music you recommend to listen to before in order to get myself prepared; or any other advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated (for example how to keep my nerves down).


Thanks,
Jon Wilen
Mt. Lebanon Blue Devils


Considering your circumstances, I would recommend a mix of Pearl Jam songs. I find Pearl Jam to combine a soulful, desperate, intense approach. A contemplative rage that is perfect for your preparation. Pearl Jam will usher you to a state championship.


April 8 is not the biggest game of your life, Jon. It will be the best game of your life. You will be faster and stronger than you've ever been. Your concentration level will be higher than it's ever been. You will do well because you care. Your eyes will be wide open all game. Yes, you will feel nauseous every day, including April 8. But, when the puck drops you will play with a contemplative rage. You will be alert, in control, fast and strong. The person who thinks calmly and clearly in stressful situations is the person who completes the task. In stressful situations, people either freeze, panic or calmly walk through the door. Visualize what you want to happen. See the game play out. Leave everything on the ice. Calmly walk through the door. And you'll be a champion.
