Hersheypark Unhappy*

on
Here’s the funny part: The Undisciplined Team lost to the undisciplined team. Bridgeport scored its third goal with J.F. Fortin in the box for a meltdown. (And at that point, Sean Bergenheim might have been a star of the game just for drawing it out of him.) At the end, Boyd Kane took an unsportsmanlike […] [Read More]

Wyatt Smith was already going up, and Sean Bergenheim was plucked off the ice this morning to head to the Island as well. Whether either, both or neither comes back to play Wednesday at Hershey, well, it’s too soon to know.

After a nice day with the family, I hit the open road. Well, not so open up there. Uncle Ron got me back to […] [Read More]

We could have audibled this week, but coach told me to stick with the play we had called. So this week’s weekly feature is on Jeremy Colliton, based on interviews conducted about five hours before news of his recall to Long Island broke.
