Not so much a general sports blog as an irregularly updated desperate plea for help.

Do the Terrier dance...
Please, next year, let's have the Frozen Four championship game available in Canada on a tier 1 cable channel, since you don't get many Colby Cohen moments too often. Rogers Sportsnet, which showed some NCAA games earlier this season, had baseball commitments.
It would have been a hell of a lot better than that out-with-a-whimper final installment of the Battle of Ontario, where the Leafs done did themselves out of a spot in the NHL draft lottery. Boston U, as you know, beat Miami of Ohio 4-3 in overtime after scoring twice in the final minute of regulation to tie it before Cohen, off a stainless-steel cojones no-look pass from James Shattenkirk, shot and had the puck redirect off Miami of Ohio's Kevin Roeder. Crazy. It was Boise State on ice.
Seriously, the NCAA Tournament needs to be on in Canada. Is it selfish to feel ripped off by not getting to watch a college hockey game and not getting to see Brad May drop the mitts in his final NHL game?
Puck Daddy had the privilege to be there and The Terrier Hockey Fan Blog, suffice to say, is alight this morning. This more than makes up for Boston U losing Ethan Werek to the Kingston Frontenacs.
(Canada played at 5 p.m. ET at the under-18 world championship yesterday, meaning Werek, who scored two goals in an 8-1 win over Switzerland, could have been back in his hotel room to see his former Stouffville Spirit linemate, Corey Trivino, skate for Boston U.)
