Hockey's In The Air

A cold front came down from Canada last night, dropping the evening tempature into the 50s. This morning great cumulus clouds skated across the rich blue southern Finger Lakes' sky. Although the calendar says that the Big Red football team is still early into its preseason camp, the waning days of August also whisper that hockey quickly approaches. So quickly, in fact, that tomorrow brings the beginning of the Beantown Summer Classic, and this week brings the opening of BCHL preseason camps.
