Happy Birthday to Me!

Normally, I don’t work on my birthday, but since I took a half day off for Opening Day, and with our Disney trip coming up soon, I decided to work a half day today. I’m leaving around lunchtime to go have a picnic in the park with my family. Of course, some people reported a light snow this morning on their way in to work, and the high is only supposed to be 47 degrees, so it’s a little chilly for a picnic. But we should have the park mostly to ourselves anyway…
Yesterday, Michigan State’s hockey team won their Frozen Four semifinal game, and will now go on to face Boston College for the championship tomorrow night at 7pm, I think on ESPN2. It wasn’t a pretty game, MSU’s wins never are. But the Spartans battled back from an early 2-0 deficit to score 4 unanswered goals and win 4-2. MSU will be clear underdogs to Boston College, who were ranked 4th in the final regular season poll (MSU was 10th). If the Spartans can dictate the pace of the game and continue to get good goaltending from Jeff Lerg, they will definitely have a chance.
