I was planning on not posting this long weekend but thought I would throw a short one out.
The weather is fair...not warm though. I would love to hit the links but that won't be happening just yet.
The Broncos season is over but WHL playoffs continue on four avenues. Here's something I pulled off Switzer's blog. This is from LeaderPost sportswriter Greg Harder:
" The Medicine Hat Arena, in some respects, is simply a larger version of the Civic Center in Moose Jaw and the Centennial Civic Center in Swift Current. Each one is old, outdated and in desperate need of upgrades - or demolition".
Greg: Give it up. It's been done already (Rod P). You missed the boat, at least a week late on this one. Rob Vanstone, I know you read this, and you must just shake your head.
Looking forward to doing as little as possible right now. Hockey season is over and the decompression phase begins for a couple weeks. If I had a nickel for every time I heard "you must have some free time now that hockey season is over" I would have at least a buck by now.
Good to see Seattle beat Vancouver last night. Hopefully they can give the G-men a run in the 2nd round series. Yeomans vs Sexsmith.... easy choice there. Medicine Hat hosts Regina in game one tonight. I won't make it over there tonight, maybe Monday's game two.
Rod P, this one is for you. Don't even think of pulling any stunts in the Arena. You will not leave on your own strength. Just a warning. Tiger fans are nuts...in a good way I guess. Plus Rids doesn't take any crap! Here's another one for you. The scoreclock's main power switch is just to your left in the broadcast booth. If the Pats ever need a timeout late in a game I'd suggest hitting the switch. It shuts the clock down and takes about a minute to get it up and running again. Many a times I've thought about it. Not because the Broncos needed a time out, just because of the homer shot-clock operators that love to pound the "home shots for" button. It's ridiculous sometimes. I don't think I could ever do it.... but I know you could/would.
Anyways, that's it for today.
