Get well soon!

I've been trying to post the picture for a week. Stupid Blogger.
What kind of hijinks has Ulanov's team been up to in his absence? The Lokomotiv was on the road for two games, losing 4-1 the Magnitogorsk Metallurg on the 15th. They then lost on the 17th 3-1 to the Chelyabinsk Traktor. The week of the 18th saw Yaroslavl back at home for two games. On the 20th, they shitkicked Ufa Salavat Yulaev 7-1. They lost on the 22nd to Togliatti Lada 5-4. Their next game will be played at Mytischi (Khimik) on the 25th. Best of luck!
Fun word of the day: Duodenum

Adam Huxley, you'd best be on your merry way.

Only one man is allowed to wear number 55 in this town.

No train wrecks here...

The Lokomotiv played two games at home this week. On 10 September, they defeated the Khabarovsk Amur 4-0, and two days later they took out the Chekhov Vityaz 5-2. Well done, Yaroslavl.

In other news, it appears that Ulanov is injured, but he should be back playing in games later this month. I had just assumed that he had been given a one-way ticket to the press box. Ha! Silly me! Also, he's sporting a fashionable double five on his jersey this season (as opposed to the single 5 of last). All is right with the Superleague world.

The annual fan club frustration is upon us...

The Lokomotiv started the season off with a bang! They defeated Novosibirsk 6-3 on 4 September while on the road, but two days later they succumbed to the power of Novokuznetsk(?) and lost 2-1. And where was Ulanov through all of this? Not on the ice, that's for damn sure!

And who is that fine-looking young man on the top right?

And they're off!

The Russian Superleague season started September 4th. As soon as the website is updated, I'll let you know how the Lokomotiv's first game went. And they have Yashin on their team now (which apparently raised ticket prices).
