Execution Time won their semi-final game, so we are continuing on into
 the finals.  We play Zeta Psi tonight (Wed) at 10:30pm, and then
 after the game we go out and celebrate the end of a fantastic season.

There's no other hockey tomorrow night, so you really have no good
 reason not to show up.  Whoo-hoo!

As for the semi-final game:

 We won against "Toxic Waste" by the narrow margin of 3-2.  Here is
  a recap.  (Please feel free to correct any obvious errors.)

 Rodney scored the first goal at the beginning of the first period,
  after being fed by Jack (I think) for the eighth time or so.  The
  old Daughtrey perseverence paid off!  Toxic Waste held in there,
  though, and came back with chippy little shot that snuck up past
  Shawn's glove.

 In the second period, Rodney slipped in the second goal, again fed by
  Jack (I think) -- this time fed from behind the net through the legs
  of a defender when the dreaded goalie Anand made the mistake of
  leaving the goal for a little tete-a-tete with our Jack.  We kept
  up the 2-1 lead into the third period, although we were beginning
  to lose a little steam.

 Middle of the third period, Toxic Waste barged into our zone and scored
  another goal, evening up the game.  This woke up the gang.  An explosive
  defensive rally followed, with Scooby and Luke bringing down the smack
  upon those Toxic Wastes who were trying to break the tie.  At some point
  Maddog (that's me) got hold of a loosened puck.  Using a deep breath
  and the skating skills drilled into him at the Leigh Heyman Skate Seminar,
  he broke for a one-on-one with the goalie, and sunk the puck up into the
  left corner of his net.  We had the lead back, the next shift held that
  lead, and then the game was over.  Whoo-hoo!

Best part of all, everyone kept smiling, even when the opponents got a
 bit pushy.  When it was over, even the opposition was smiling.  
Damn, that was a fun game.  And we get another one tomorrow.

See you all there.
