Ice Muskies!

Yesterday's TCT article brings us some news about Madison's newest hockey team, the Ice Muskies. A friend of mine, who lives near Hartmeyer, is understandably excited for the following reasons:
  1. More hockey (duh!)

  2. Their home rink is close to her house (how convenient!)


The Ice Muskies will be part of the MWHL, a new "A" circuit with teams reportedly planned for Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Kalamazoo, Chicago, and potentially Milwaukee. (Currently Madison is the only team officially listed on the league website.)

It's too bad Madison couldn't get a "AAA" or "AA" team, but this still could be a heck of a lot of fun.

And the team ownership and league management seem to have brains and hence are going to try to avoid scheduling conflicts with the Badgers as much as possible.

Oh, and did I mention (and as my friend so astutely and enthusiastically pointed out), IT'S A FREAKIN' HOCKEY FISH!?

I gotta tell ya, though, I sure am glad the our hockey fish is not battling a case of obstructive jaundice (description courtesy of Puck Daddy).
