Small state, big dreams

Maine is a small state. For most of us, most of the time, that's a good thing. We've chosen to live a bit off the beaten path because we prefer the somewhat slower pace, the open spaces and (bath salts addicts notwithstanding) the fact that things are relatively safe around here. Small is good when it means few traffic jams, a lack of smog, and the front page of the paper is devoted to hermits and not serial killers. One downside is the occasional lack of perspective and the need to have a taste of the big time life, which leads me to the subject of University of Maine hockey.

Fair weather complainers

First, congratulations to the University of Maine men's hockey team for battling to the Hockey East Championship game and earning a berth at the NCAA tournament. Twenty-three wins and counting...

Second, congrats to the UMaine hockey fans (well, most of them) for actually acknowledging that the Bears are still playing into late March.

To some of you I just can't take it anymore. You've finally pushed me too far! By "you," I mean the UMaine hockey "fans" who want to see nothing more than Tim Whitehead fail and be fired, as though the program would be better off if that happened.
