Billy Christopoulos, starting goalie for the Air Force Falcons Billy Christopoulos, 2019 first-team all-Atlantic Hockey goalie Billy Christopoulos, Billy the Greek, plays his last home series this weekend at the Cadet Ice Arena against the Niagara Purple Eagles in the AHC quarterfinals.
We want to congratulate Billy for his great career at Air Force and thank him for planting the earworm that is the Flight of the Conchords’ Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros every time his name is announced. He may be Billy the Greek to Falcon fans, but he’ll always be the HiphopChristoulos to PengoSports. Thanks, Billy.
They call him the Hip-Hop-Christopoulos Flows that glow like phosphorous Poppin’ off the top of this esophagus Rockin’ this metropolis He’s not a large water-dwelling mammal Where did you get that preposterous hypothesis? Did Steve tell you that, perchance? Mmmph, Steve

I got tired of looking at that dead frog in the last post (I am bad updating content. Sorry), so here’s a picture of Air Force’s Jordan Himley celebrating the game winning goal against Army West Point on Friday, January 27th.
The glum folks behind Jordan are Army fans in the away fans section at the Cadet Ice Arena. Air Force defeated Army 3-1 on Friday & 3-2 on Saturday to sweep the series.
The Air Force hockey team is a win away from another trip to next weekend’s Atlantic Hockey Championships in Rochester, NY on the heels of last night’s hard fought 2-1 quarterfinal win over Niagara at the Cadet Ice Arena.
Tickets are still available for game 2 tonight (and Sunday’s game 3 if necessary). Come support the Falcons and their drive to get back to the NCAA tournament.
Air Force swept first place Mercyhurst last weekend with a 5-3 track meet win on Friday and followed up with a 2-0 victory in a defensive battle on Saturday. The Falcons picked up 4 big points from the conference leading Lakers in their bid to secure a top 4 slot in the Atlantic Hockey playoffs .
The Falcons’ Chad Demers (duh-MERZ), #17, scored Saturday’s game winner with 1:34 to go in the game. To say he, and the team, were excited would be an understatement.
Air Force hosts RIT on February 21 & 22 to close out the regular season home schedule. Get your butt out there and watch some damn good hockey.
