Waiting Game / Alex 08 Update

Today will be a day of waiting for both teams for a couple reasons...

Waiting to get game three underway as the teams begin a stretch of potentially playing four games in five nights, and waiting to see what the WHL will decide to do on a pair of hits from the first two games of this series.

Sadly, it's taken over the talk around the best-of-seven. Brett Leffler and Jordan Eberle will learn their fate sometime later today more than likely.

The Broncos will also get a status update on injured defenseman Michael Wilson and Jesse Dudas. It's not something they will be sharing though. It's the playoffs and a whole new set of rules takes over in that regard.

If any word is heard out of the league office I'll post it.

On a lighter note, the Broncos playoff cat dubbed "Alex 08" will have a home at the end of the playoff run.... it's original one.

What a good news story this has turned out to be. The Broncos took in this cat which was hanging around the construction zone of the I-plex. They fed it, took care of it and gave it a name. Their plan was to give it to a willing family after the playoffs.

Turns out, the cat is that of our radio stations General Manager. Her cat went missing late last year and made it's way to the I-plex.

Our G.M. went down to the Broncos dressing room and identified it yesterday.

She has graciously allowed the Broncos to keep "Sasha" until the end of the playoffs.

Hey brudy, I always forget about the gold that is these blogs. I loved the Alex 08 story, that is funny as hell. D sent me the link. What a warm hearted thing. If this ever happend in Moose Jaw, you know that the players would eat the cat or something to that effect.
