PARTY SEASON IS HERE ... Yikes! Last night I had the good fortune of attending an "Oktoberfest" party at a friend's place, and it was ultra-ridiculous. Hundreds of foolish German beer drinking music, oceans of beer, great Bavarian costumes, a broken bong, and no visits from the police! I took a bunch of pictures and I was hoping to post a few of them today, but I think I lost my camera during last night's festivities. After I recover, I should be ready for the World's Greatest Party In Town (The HOWLER) on Friday night!

HOCKEY FROM THE GROUND UP ... Do you have kids who play hockey? More specifically, is your child a goalie? If so, then you know that young goaltenders get way less coaching, training, and attention, right? If you're looking for some specialized one-on-one coaching for your kid, then you should contact these guys: http://HockeyHaus.webs.com. Local, experienced, and understanding, Sean & Mario can fine-tune your child's goaltending skills based on their natural talent and style. They're just starting up, and if you know anyone who has video equipment, and / or editing skills, they'd love to talk to you. Great dudes looking for a little start-up support.
