Thoughts....

This past weekend seemed to be the weekend for comebacks. As most of you are aware that the Pats pulled off an almost miracle-like comeback on Saturday coming from 4 goals down to beat the Wheat Kings 6-4. Sunday night was another game that is hard on Pats fans nerves (this one anyway) as the Pats were able to battle back and beat the Raiders 4-3 with the captain scoring with just over 20 seconds left in the game.

I honestly still can't believe that the Pats were able to comeback from the 4 goal deficit. When Dziurzynsi scored the 4-0 goal I thought the game was all but done. Hewitt was lifted and Beukeboom entered the contest something happened.... and I don't know what it was but the Pats took advantage in a huge way and took over the game and made the Wheat Kings look very average. When the Pats scored to tie the game I have to say that it might have been one of the loudest ovations I have heard in a very long time at the Brandt Centre including a standing ovation.... When they scored the 5th goal I think that it was topped. for the size of the crowd it was unbelievably loud and included yet another standing ovation! Were the Wheat Kings Beuke-Beuke-Beuke-Beuke-BOOMED? I don't know but it was amazing.

I know it's 66 games into the season but I still don't get this team.... and that's a good thing. The Pats of the last few seasons would have in most cases "folded up their tents" and limped off the ice with a lopsided loss. This team battles and battles and I have to learn to not count the 2011/12 Pats out in any game.

Congrats to Jordan Weal in moving on up in the Pats record books!

That's all I really have tonight.... Pats vs. Wheat Kings tomorrow. Hopefully it will be as exciting as Saturday but not as heart wrenching. 

GO PATS GO!!

I've been trying to think about...

how to add more content to TheBlueliner but I'm not sure what I want to add here. I keep on saying to check back in the near future but I just never get back here. I have a couple of other things going on and I hope that I have more time to focus on things that I can put here. Seeing as Twitter is my main source I'll start embedding my tweets here. Earlier in the year, Rob Vanstone did a story on me for the Leader-Post which I'll share here: As far back as 41-year-old Kevin Shaw can remember, he has been fascinated with the @WHLPats — as evidenced by his extensive collection https://t.co/UD8JrxQSwG #WHL — Regina Leader-Post (@leaderpost) February 7, 2020 Some of my regular daily Tweets include Pats Alumni and their birthdays. I usually write a small biography on each player that had birthdays. July 11th's @WHLPats alumni birthdays...
