Winter hits... why be depressed?
It snowed in my hometown of Saskatoon yesterday, unofficially marking the start of the 2010-11 winter. The beginning of the season is always a little tough... there's no outdoor hockey to help out. Here's an old article from the NY Times' Slapshot blog that reminds us of the fun that's still to be had. For more images of Kyrgyzstani hockey, visit this Live Journal entry from 2008. If these images don't make you want winter to get going and give us some of the good stuff, then I don't know what will. Kyrgyzstan, BTW, is not an IIHF member, so these are pretty awesome in that light.
