Inside Hockey's NCAA Video Previews

I had the privilege to be joined by a fellow colleague at Inside Hockey - also known as Kevin Edelson - for our video previews for IH of the NCAA Tournament.

Northeast Regional

Both Kevin and I agreed that BC would come out of this region against North Dakota. East Coast Bias perhaps?

East Regional

Kevin and I agreed that Cornell is coming out of this region. Is this another case of East Coast Bias?

West Regional

Ok, I went with Wisconsin in this regional and Kevin went with St. Cloud State for our WCHA representatives in the Frozen Four. Perhaps East Coast Bias is dead right?

Midwest Regional

In this regional we both picked a representative from the CCHA as I picked Miami and Kevin picked Michigan.

Frozen Four Picks

Kevin going against Michigan in their own state at Ford Field? You don't say? Well, at the end of the day"East Coast Bias" is now in effect with Kevin with BC coming out as this year's National Champion Cornell. Hey, his Frozen Four predictions are bold I will say that.

And since your's truly is confident that Miami will beat Cornell in the National Championship, I decided to add a signature to my bracket and put it up on Ebay at a later date.

Enjoy the Tournament!

Rosie's Rebounds: NCAA Tournament Edition

Mascot Shenanigans at TD Garden

It been said before by sports journalists that, “95% of sports writers are sports writers because of the free food served before games.” While I cannot
confirm nor deny that statement, I can, however, confirm that this creature decided to crash the party, uninvited.

Take a look at the evidence here with this picture as seen during the first intermission of the Boston College – Vermont game on Level 3 at the TD Garden Friday afternoon.

Photo taken from my Blackberry.

The Call: BC’s beloved mascot Baldwin gets two minutes for mooching.

I cannot confirm nor deny what he had to eat, but an investigation is currently taking place with the mascot police.

We’ll try to keep you up to date on the latest surroundings of this situation, but until then, we must attend a briefing on this situation…

Colin Campbell on Ovechkin Suspension

Colin Campbell, the NHL's Disciplinary, was on NHL Live today talking about the decision to suspend Washington Capitals superstar Alex Ovechkin after his hit on Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brian Campbell, who is now out for the rest of the year with a broken collarbone and broken ribs. Here's what he had to say.

...Look if there's no injury on the play, we probably wouldn't do anything.
Fair enough under normal circumstances, right?

Join the Rosie's Rebounds page on Facebook

Don't worry, I haven't forgotten to post my blog entries here at Rosie's Hockey. With my busy schedule the past few months at Inside Hockey, which included the Winter Classic, Frozen Fenway, the Beanpot and several Bruins and college games, I had opted to take time off for awhile in posting blog entries here until my schedule was a bit lighter. I will be able to post here now on a more consistent basis.

In the meantime, a Facebook fan page has been created for Rosie's Rebounds. Click here to become a fan.
