Time for a Change.

...well at least my college’s hockey team wants one!
Since this is my third post of the day on my blog, so I thought I could get away with this pretty specific blog post. Its mostly for myself so I can look back on it a few months from now BUT if there are any hockey fans or Miami University students out there... this one is for you!

My beloved Miami University Redhawks are leaving the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) league and are one of the founding schools to start a new conference, the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC). Six college teams are joining together to the league and in turn will give Miami some insanely great competition now. For example, I love when we play Denver and North Dakota's hockey team… so now that they are in our conference I can get used to it… Bring it on! {That’s easy for me to say as I sit in the stands and tell the boys what I think they should do. Yeah, I am one of those girls!} Haha but anyway here is the list of teams now in the NCHC with Miami:

"We are excited about the future of Miami Hockey and the conference that we will be playing in beginning in 2013. Our goal is to always be playing at the highest level and to compete for a national championship and we feel this new conference will continue to give us that opportunity. This is an exciting time and one that all of Miami Hockey is looking forward to." -Coach Blasi
Emily from Live, Laugh, and Shop and I will be sitting in the front row rink side every game no matter what. Next season, Miami will still be playing CCHA teams, but come 2012-2013 we will be seeing new opponent jerseys on our ice! Yay!!

Yes that's our feet!
Maybe in the next two years Miami University will get its first national championship? Goodness I hope so.

Anyone else have a sports team that they are obsessed with or just follow? Any college teams that you are loyal to? I want to know that I am not the only crazy one whose is sport crazied.
