The Wausau West & CW Storm could not finish their quest for State Titles in hockey. The Storm lost in the semi-finals on Friday. The Warriors made it to the championship game before losing to University School. U-School had started the season slowly and were beaten handily by West in early December....but righted their ship and beat both Green Bay Notre Dame and Wausau West to win the crown. i'm not one of those people that believe if you don't win the championship, the season is a disappointment. Especially at the high school level, the journey is as important as the the result. Winning a title is hard. If you give your best effort and fall short....there is no shame in that.

Songs of The Day (from my I-pod)
Edge Of Seventeen-Stevie Nicks (1981) from her solid solo Lp "Bella Donna" came this tune written after the death of her uncle and John Lennon in the same week.
Edith and The Kingpin-Joni Mitchell (1975) after the success of "Court & Spark", Joni returned with "the Hissing Of Summer Lawns" which wasn't as enthusiacticly recieved. This is a jazzy tune from that album.
