Chase Drake comes from a long line of hockey players. A Drake has been playing or coaching hockey in Mosinee it seems like forever. The extended family won't have to go far to watch the big defenseman play his college hockey. After 2 years of Junior hockey Drake has signed a national letter of intent to play at Wisconsin next year. I would imagine he's very excited to be able to take the ice at the Kohl Center...but I'll bet his family is even more excited to be able to see him skate in the red & white. 2 other players from Wisconsin were among the signees...Jefferson Dahl from Eau Claire and Sean Little from Fond du Lac.
The Badger men beat Arizona in hoops last night. The face Gonzaga in Hawaii tonight...8:30 on WSAU
The Spurs broke the Bucks win streak as Matt Bonner came of the bench and scored 23...most from 3 point range. Get well soon Andrew Bogut...the Spurs dominated the boards in the win.

Songs of the Day
Danny's All-Star Joint-Rickie Lee Jones (1979) from her sparkling debut Lp comes this jazzy, jivey tune. Love this stuff.
Danny's Song-Loggins & Messina (1972) from the debut Lp "Sittin In" come this Loggins tune written for his older brother Dave on the birth of his son. Anne Murray had a big hit with this one.
