The Evil Monkeys got the jump on the Diaper Brigade and then rode a 3-0 lead to a comfy victory. I was able to see most of the 1st period on-line, and then the end of the 3rd period as well. The afternoon games are a pain, but apparently the TC management are trying to acclimatize the team on a gradual basis. By Dec. 26th they have to be ready to play at the equivalent of 3:30 am CST.

There are lots of links up as I post, and there are bound to be more by daybreak. The one painful thing is how the sports media seem unable to describe teams from the CIS. I appreciate that it is hard to name some past combined squads, but this was the U of A. How hard should that be to describe?

Torrie Dyck scored twice for the Primates, with singles coming from Johnny Lazo and Kruise "Pokey" Reddick.

Team Canada will face a Dino-laden melange on Thursday afternoon, also available on-line at Fast Hockey.
