Total Team Effort Leads Eagles to OT Win Over Sundogs

Total Team Effort Leads Eagles to OT Win Over Sundogs

LOVELAND, Colo. - The  Colorado Eagles registered a season high 50 shots in their 4-3 overtime win against the Arizona Sundogs, but it was the defensive corps that was the real story for the home team. Forced to play with just five d-men for most of the game (after Joe Grimaldi received a game misconduct penalty in the first period), Colorado's final two scores came off the sticks of defensemen. The Eagles dominated play in the first period, out-shooting Arizona 18-7, but the Sundogs ... Full Story

Learn from these young Egyptians?

Learn from these young Egyptians?

To the Editor, I watched in amazement as the young people of Egypt peacefully arose to overturn their country’s dictatorship. They revolted against a system ruled by an elite few, where all the wealth flowed upward, and ordinary people had no opportunity to progress, no matter how bright, skilled or educated they might be. Is Egypt now ripe for theocracy? Not likely. Egyptians have closely watched the Iranian revolution and its aftermath. They see their Iranian counterparts desperately ... Full Story
