I read yesterday about a survey that was done to determine what the most common day to be born is. After polling over 12,000 Americans, the answer is October 5. If you count 9 months backward, you pretty much land right on New Year's Eve. Also, they determined that May 22 is the least likely day to be born. Coincidentally, May 22 is Wally's birthday, so I guess he's extra special. (I'm sure they weren't taking dogs into account, though).

One of my hockey teams, the one that has just won two straight championships, nearly folded after the season ended. As it turns out, there were only 3 of us who were planning on playing the next season. Some of the guys were moving up a division, some were not happy about the new rate increase, and many were just tired of playing on Saturday nights. A friend was able to step in and take over the team and we've been scrounging around, trying to recruit good players so we don't suffer a horrible rebuilding season. After a couple of weeks of this, it looks like the team may be complete. I think we should do alright, once everyone gets to know each other and learns to play together. It would be nice if we didn't have a season like the Kings just had.

The song of the day is "Voices Carry" by Til Tuesday off their 1985 album of the same name. This is another one of those bands that I can't quite believe I haven't used for the song of the day yet. This is a classic 80s song, and the band has a very classic 80s New Wave look. Lead singer Aimee Mann would go on to write more music, some of which eventually inspired the movie Magnolia.

Hockey is pretty big here in New England. I've never played but have always admired those that do. It's a tough workout!
