Well I’m sure it was a very exciting one for the spectator and I am happy to say this team is improving greatly and this was certainly the best overall team performance yet.

Still too many mistakes and giveaways on defense and we had a 0-2 hole to fight back to 2-2 after one period. Then a couple more mistakes and again fighting back a two goal hole from down 2-4. But we did it again and it was 4-4 late in the game.

Last minute of play and we were pressing for a goal to try to get our first win, in a game where I felt we were actually slightly better overall than our opponents. Then the puck got loose from the collection of guys near their net and one of their guys got to it first, their fastest and best player who already had scored twice. 

He came in on a breakaway, completely uncontested because no one else was fast enough. Made a move and I stupidly was impatient and went for the pokecheck. He slid it right under me. I turned and saw the puck cross the line, then up to the clock and saw it tick down 0.2… 0.1… 0.0. And we lose again, 4-5.

Personally I was happy with my game overall. Saving any of their goals would have required some pretty spectacular saves and I still managed to have probably three or four spectacular saves that I was able to make. If this team can cut out like a third of the giveaways on defence I think I can save enough of the remaining ones to give us a good chance of actually getting a W.

A really fun and exciting game overall, even though the finish was far from ideal in my opinion.

Most of the time someone tells me about a great sunset and then I go outside to check it out I end up disappointed. Because I grew up in New Mexico.

Suspect arrested after Mendota Heights police officer killed

Brian Fitch, left, was being sought in the fatal shooting of Mendota Heights police officer Scott Patrick, right.

A suspect was shot and wounded by police late Wednesday before being taken into custody during a dramatic manhunt that followed the fatal shooting of a Mendota Heights police officer.

At about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, many police cars and ambulances congregated at Sycamore and Park streets, just off of Rice Street, in St. Paul’s North End, and there were reports that shots had been fired. Just before 9 p.m., Fitch and a woman who was with him, both of whom were shot and wounded by police, had been taken into custody. Both were taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul. Police said they were expected to survive, police said.

Officer Scott Thomas Patrick, 47, of Mendota Heights, was killed about 12:20 p.m. during what began as a routine traffic stop on Dodd Road near Smith Avenue in West St. Paul, just two blocks from his city’s limits.

Very glad they got him. Also glad we no longer live just a mile or so from where the shootout happened.

Mendota Heights police officer shot, killed during traffic stop

Mendota Heights’ most senior police officer was shot and killed during a traffic stop Wednesday near Dodd Road and Smith Avenue in West St. Paul.

A manhunt is on for the suspect.

Officer Scott Patrick, a 47-year-old who was married and had two teenaged children, died at Regions Hospital, said Mendota Heights Police Chief Mike Aschenbrener.

Patrick was about two blocks into West St. Paul and conducting a routine traffic stop when he was shot about 12:20 p.m., Aschenbrener said

Police are searching for 39-year-old Brian Fitch, Sr. (pictured), who lives in the South St. Paul/West St. Paul area, Aschenbrener said. Fitch has a lengthy criminal history, including convictions for first-degree burglary, theft, escaping custody and fleeing from police officers.

So horribly sad. I hope they find him soon, and then he ends up falling down a couple dozen times as he’s apprehended.

How to Overcome Apathy

onlinecounsellingcollege:

1. We often feel apathetic when we’ve picked the wrong goals or when have no goals, or direction for our life. So, look at what inspires you, or makes you feel alive.
2. Stop listening to others, and their views on success. Success really is doing what’s important to YOU.
3. Try to think of some small action that will improve how you feel – and just do one small thing, and note how good it makes you feel!
4. Look for someone who could function as a role model for you – who didn’t have advantages but made something of life. If they can do it – it means that you can, too!
5. Visualise how great you’ll feel if you keep persevering, and get what matters to you, and have an awesome life!

According to the website my team got a 3-3 tie last night, so that’s awesome.
More importantly I’m feeling much better. Got to bed early and sweated through a fever that thankfully broke and aside from a bit of a headache and still feeling tired I’m way better than yesterday.
I need to trim my hairs, but, eh.
