Sweet Pads VI

Jack Campbell back stopped the US U-20 team to a bronze medal in this year’s tournament held in Buffalo, NY. And he did so in style. The stars and stripes motif on his legs pads blocker and glove was tastefully done. The pads give off a very patriotic feel while not being over the top or gaudy in any way. Too bad he was the only player to show up in the semi-final 4-1 loss to Canada. Add this honor to your best goaltender of the tournament award Mr. Campbell, you are now forever enshrined in The Sweet Pads Hall of Fame.

World Championships…

I am not sure if this is common knowledge, but I have been blogging from Europe, Ireland to be exact, since September. So this offers me the unique opportunity to do things that I would not be able to do back in the good ol’ North America. Besides drinking legally before I am 21, I will also be able to attend this year’s IIHF World Championship in Switzerland. I have my tickets already for what should be a great trip. I will get to see Canada take on Belarus and the USA play Latvia. I will have my camera to take many great action shots and if its not too creepy, some great sweaters wore by the spectators.  There is also the possibility I will be heading to a IIHF Division I final as well. Stay tuned…
