Midnight Mania-- Part III

defkit's take on Midnight Mania on the players and the on-ice doings.

I reached WBA with the countdown at 30 seconds (I'd been on the ice in Marlboro at 11:05!)...timing is everything. I have to say that as I walked in off the street and could hear the roar of the crowd, it got my blood pumping in a way that HAA unfortunately will never be able to. But that's okay, we need HAA, and it is a phenomenal arena. But just for a night, it was great to be back in the old barn. You just can't compare the way the fans are right on top of the action. I was impressed with the size of the crowd. I was saying to myself that as the freshmen are skating onto the ice in this environment, they are saying to themselves..."this is why I chose BU, and I'm glad I did."
- Glad to hear only a slight hint of booing during Parkers remarks, and also glad to hear the cheering when he was done discussing the swearing.
- Bennett definitely is a crowd pleaser, pumping the arms, and diving for the finish line in the fastest goalie competition to try to make up ground on KG.
- I know it's just goofing around, but dang, the players on this team sure can dangle the puck around. The sophomore line on the 3-0 drills was sick.
- Higgins looks like he put on some muscle...a very good sign. (And still won the speedskating competition)
- I still can't believe what Lawrence did on the breakaway drills. First he did the Mike Legg scoop up and spin around throwing the puck at the net. Nice, but I've seen many guys do it. However, on his last breakaway, he took it to a whole new level. Once he has the puck scooped up, he lifted his stick so it was straight up in the air and flicked the stick back and forth (picture a lacrosse player flicking his stick, spinning it side to side) about 4 times before he finally lost control of the puck. Obviously, it wouldn't be legal in a game, but it was sick. Of course, that has nothing to do with how he'll be as a player, but it was pretty cool to watch.
- I watched Strait quite a bit, and thought he looked very good. Just a solid mix of skating, stickhandling, and passing.- Gryba looked like he can get that big frame moving.

Hearing so much about Japan since childhood, I had envisaged a picture of a hi-tech place with people who are capable of inventing things that we can only imagine and diligent enough to convert misfortune into fortune. Though I was a little concerned about the accommodation part, hotels in Japan were there to get me rid of such worries too. I was really happy to find my perception about Japan matching the real scenario in the country. Before I proceed, I wish to assure you that you can visit Japan within your budget, though it is an expensive place. And the credit for it goes to the japan hotels which serve you nice accommodation at reasonable rates. I would not exaggerate if I say that Japan is a modern country with rich heritage. Of course, I was familiar with some famous names such as Tokyo, Osaka, Nagasaki and Hiroshima. While the capital, Tokyo, impressed me with its hi-tech attractions and skyscrapers, the natural wonders Mount Fuji and the hot springs of Beppu captivated me with their beauty. If you are a technology lover, Japan is a paradise for you. For a shopping freak like me, this country offers a platform where I can enjoy the sheer diversity of shopping. And, yes, traveling in Bullet train at a speed of 235 km/h was thrilling. The hotels in Japan where I stayed never put any strain on my pocket and I am really appreciative of its wonderful services.

Andrew Cohen said...

Diverse, gorgeous, bewitching, and ancient yet modern—I would use these rhetorical expressions if you ask me to describe “Spain” in a few words. And I am sure that I can say the same for hotels in Spain too—they do impress you with their excellent services. And let me tell you that if you think of Spain being nothing more than Bullfights, Flamenco dancers and crowded beaches, you are going to miss out on seeing the world’s finest amalgamation of ancient and ultra-modern features. It is a spectacular country having everything that I and you like: beaches, monuments, artwork, museums, music, modern architecture, great festivals and unlimited fun. Look to the north and you find it resembling the rolling green hills of Ireland. Turn towards south and you encounter quasi-Moroccan landscapes and architecture. I cannot help appreciate spain hotels which allowed me to stay here for a long time and that too within my budget. Thanks to them that I could see all the wonders in the cities and villages of Spain. Anyone would become a fan of the beaches near Malaga, Huelva and Almeria. Beaches near the coast of La Manga, Galicia, and Asturias also impressed me a lot. Now guess what one can look forward to while being in this region. Yes! You are right—a beautiful resort town. Many are there on the Costa de la Luz and the Costa del Sol. In my search for those world famous architectures from Antoni Gaudi, I landed in Barcelona and uttered nothing but “Wow!” when I saw them. Even some of the accommodations which you may call hotels in Spain possess the same gorgeousness—fantastic, it was! And yes, I hardly find any word to admire the friendly and vibrant people of Spain. It is good to see such diverse social, cultural and lingual platforms over there.
