This evening I had a Daddy Daughter Date night with Charlotte, with Poppa Noel joining us at an Adirondack Phantoms game at the Glens Falls Civic Center. It was a good game and the Phantoms 3-1 win over the Albany Devils brings them to four wins in a row.
We had a great time, arriving a few minutes early which allowed us to come down by the glass and watch the guys during the pre-game practice. During this time, Adirondack #9 Rob Bordson tagged a puck against the glass where we were standing.
This made Charlotte a little nervous, but I explained that he was just having a little fun. A little later during the 20-minute session, he skated over with a puck and pointed to the top of the glass, and tossed the puck up and over. I caught it and gave it to Charlotte.
After the game, the team had an on-ice photo session with the phans (Adirondack for fans), so we went down and sort out Rob Bordson and had Charlotte’s photo taken with him. She was so excited to she him up close.
What a great evening, and class interaction with a class guy from a class team. Kudos Adirondack Phantoms. Thank you!

I was looking for a way to have the game schedules for the Colorado Avalanche and the Adirondack Phantoms available to me quickly on my cell phone, without the need to go hunt through the team websites, or the league websites.
I found ways to read in each team schedule as CSV data, then I looped the data and output it to the page as readable text. The Colorado Avalanche one is simply reading in a standard CSV file, while with the Adirondack Phantoms one I had to get a little more creative and I am pulling in HTML table data to a Google Spreadsheet that is in turn being published to the web as CSV data.

How is this income? This is not something that he can take down to the grocery store to put food on his family’s table, and he sure as heck cannot put it in his gas tank. How is that income???
Come on IRS (Insane and Ridiculously Silly)! Tax a man on his contracted work, not something that was given to him without his knowledge before hand. This is a gift, not something that he asked for or expected. Period.
No wonder this government has crashed as badly as it has… How dumb!
