TODAY'S THOUGHT

God wants to see prayers that are filled with genuine praise and thanksgiving for what He has done in the past. He wants our hearts to be filled with awe and gratitude for His blessings. He wants us to set up memorials in our hearts testifying to the provisions He has given us.

The National Collegiate Hockey Conference's annual championship weekend is heading to Saint Paul, MN beginning this upcoming 2017-18 season....

    SAINT PAUL, Minn. (UND) - The National Collegiate Hockey Conference's annual championship weekend is heading to Saint Paul, MN beginning this upcoming 2017-18 season. The NCHC Board of Directors recently approved the move to make Xcel Energy Center the future home of the NCHC Frozen Faceoff. The Conference and Xcel Energy Center have agreed to a five-year contract for the home of the NHL's Minnesota Wild to host the Frozen Faceoff through 2022, the NCHC and Xcel Energy Center announced today.

    The NCHC Frozen Faceoff is the culmination of the NCHC Tournament, with the two semifinals taking place on Friday followed by the third-place game and championship on Saturday. This season's Frozen Faceoff will take place on March 16-17, 2018 at Xcel Energy Center

    Previously the Frozen Faceoff had been held at Target Center in Mineapolis.

    MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Twins continue chasing a playoff spot as they begin a four game series in Kansas City tonight. After 20 wins in August, the Twins are just 2-4 in September. Despite the slump, Minnesota still holds on to the second American League wildcard spot with a 1/2 game lead over the LA Angels.

    Kyle Gibson (9-10, 5.33 ERA) will start for the Twins tonight. Newly acquired right-hander Sam Gaviglio (3-5, 4.62 ERA) will make his Royals debut. He was claimed off outright waivers from Seattle last Friday. The Royals are 2 1/2 games behind the Twins for the second American League Wild Card spot.

       FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - The New England Patriots are set to kick off another season in the afterglow of a Super Bowl title. Seven months after completing the largest comeback in Super Bowl history, the Patriots will raise the franchise's fifth championship banner prior tonight's season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs. It's what's come to be a familiar sight ever since Bill Belichick and Tom Brady captured their first Lombardi Trophy together in 2001.
 
     Trying to spoil this latest party will be a Kansas City team that has been chasing its own post-championship commemoration since the franchise won its lone Super Bowl in 1970. The Chiefs were the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs last season before having their postseason run truncated by an 18-16 loss to Pittsburgh in the divisional round.
 
     The Patriots are 4-0 in season openers following a Super Bowl win. When Brady last opened a season at home against the Chiefs in 2008, he limped off the field with a season-ending knee injury.

     LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. (AP) - The NFL will be able to know the speed, location and even the rotation of the league's footballs this season under new technology being used with the ball itself. For fans, that will mean even more statistics. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags will be in footballs used in every NFL game this season after being tested last season during the preseason and in Thursday night games.
 
     Vishal Shah, the NFL's senior vice president of digital media, says the league is excited to learn new information tracking the footballs in partnership with Zebra Technologies in a move announced today. The tags, similar to the technology used to make credit cards more secure, wirelessly communicate location data and speed. Each player wore a chip in his shoulder pads during games in 2015.

     CLEVELAND (AP) - The Cleveland Indians could make several hundred customers of a window and home repair business very happy if the team extends its winning streak to 15 games tonight.
 
     Cleveland.com reports Cleveland-based Universal Windows Direct offered customers in July free products and services, to include windows, doors, siding, roofs and other repairs, if the Indians put together a 15-game winning streak this season. Company president Chad Howman says more than 250 orders were placed in July in a promotion marking the company's 15th year in business. He says a Tribe victory Thursday would be a "win-win" for everyone.
 
     The customers' chances appear decent. The Indians, first in the American League Central Division, play the last-place Chicago White Sox with Indians' ace Corey Kluber scheduled as the starting pitcher.
