Just another July day. Hooray...

Before I complain about this long, boring stretch of hockey-less summer, there's some actual important stuff to get to. And as a bonus, it makes your August that much more hockey-filled.

On Saturday, August 3rd, at Ridder Arena, Defending the Blue Line- an organization that donates to keep children in military families connected to our favorite sport- will be putting on their charity game. Tickets are 10 dollars if you buy them here. You can also purchase tickets that will enable you to get autographs after the game. If you can't make it to the game, you're very welcome to donate tickets back to Defending the Blue Line, where they'll be given to military families. The game will also be streamed online. For more information on Defending the Blue Line, please go to their website.
