Wrapping up a long weekend

What a terrific Family Day long weekend. I'm not normally in the habit of offering kudos to political parties, but you have to give the former NDP government a "thumbs-up" for instituting a February holiday.

I thoroughly enjoyed the long weekend with the Jakester. Saturday saw us travel to the thriving metropolis of Gray with the rest of the novice Bullets for a hockey tournament. Young Jacob potted another goal in the first game, and posted a solid performance in goal in the second game - only giving up two goals. The Bullets ended up with a 1-2 record, but outscored the opposition 14-12. We'll take it.

Sunday involved some outdoor hockey (brrrr!) and Monday included a hockey practice. We wrapped up the festivities with a viewing of Dwayne (the Rock) Johnson's "Game Plan" movie last night.

All in all, a good time was had by all. Hopefully the Regina Pats enjoyed their weekend in the Rocky Mountains, before getting back to business tonight. The Pats are in Calgary and need a win to hang on to any hope of catching the Hitmen for top spot in the WHL's Eastern Conference. Regina goes into tonight's contest trailing Calgary by 11 points, with two games in hand.
