Minnesota State vs Bowling Green Men's Hockey

Minnesota State vs Bowling Green Men's Hockey
Todd Swank's Diary Entry for November 3, 2019

Our leaves are almost completely fallen off the trees which means winter will be here any day and we'll have to say "So long" to our albino squirrel friends again when the snow starts rolling in.  I'm not ready for it.

Blue was very excited for Halloween this year so he could break out his new costume.  Miss Sheri said he was Little Red Riding Hood's Grandmother, but we all asked shouldn't his scarf be red then?  She said Red Riding Hood wore red, but the Grandma wore Blue.  However, I couldn't confirm that via Google so it appears Blue's costume was just all wrong.  I didn't have the heart to break it to him, though.

The temperature was 33 degrees out on Saturday morning, but that didn't matter to Blue as he was ecstatic to have the opportunity to go swimming.  I wasn't nearly as ecstatic when he exited the water and proceeded to shake his drippings all over me.  I can't handle the cold like he does.

On Saturday, we drove down to Mankato, Minnesota to see Luke for Minnesota State's Parent Weekend.  We like spending time with him.

Luke lives with Jackson Walters so we were looking forward to spending the day with him and his parents as well.

We also had a chance to see some of their other friends so it was just a great day in general.

We even had the opportunity for some musical intermissions throughout the day which kept us all feeling pretty peppy.  We love playing cymbals on lady skirts.

We had dinner at the Loose Moose.  Not sure how the moose got loose in the first place, but the food was pretty good.

We thought it would be fun to go see the Minnesota State Men's Hockey team take on Bowling Green.  They lost their first game of the year to the same team the night before so we figured they'd be pretty geared up for some revenge.

Suddenly they all started attacking their own goalie for some reason.  Not sure what he did, but it must have sucked to be him.

The big bull with the devil horns seemed to calm everyone down, though.  They stopped beating on their goalie after he showed up and seemed ready to play some hockey.

The game was well played and the home team took an early lead.

The Mavericks ended up dominating pretty much the entire game and won by a final score of 5-1.  I guess they figured out what they were doing wrong the night before and were able to get back on the right track.  

Needless to say, we had a bunch of fun with these people and look forward to the next time we can all get back together!
