More boring than usual

Marathons: Sunday notes

on
It’s nine years since the Sound Tigers last took a lead in a playoff series (Marjamaki 2:11), and in a few minutes, it’ll be nine years since the events related herein. So I’ll ask again, for I guess the 10th time: If you don’t, please wear a seat belt. And I guess I’ll add, as […] [Read More]

Non-home part of home-and-home: Portland (road) pregame

on
Just got my electric bill. Can I borrow a defibrillator? Bridgeport starts a home-and-home in Portland tonight. After Wednesday’s bleh performance and the expected return of a couple of regulars, I’m not really sure what the lineup will look like. I mean, I could make a reasonable guess, I think, but the fine details, we’ll […] [Read More]

Memory, Wilkes-Barre and Scranton: WBS pregame

on
Memory is strange. I walked in this morning and said I’d go around the corner to the runway to watch the skate. There’s no runway here, though; that’s in Manchester, where there’s a similar hallway and similar bowels. I was surprised this morning to walk in and find only one banner hanging in the rafters […] [Read More]

Living for a dream: Tuesday notes

on
What day is it? Yeah. New Islanders goalie David Leggio’s mask made the rounds on Twitter today; from David Gunnarsson, it’s a pretty neat design that honors the Big Club’s history. Catchup: Bill Ballou reported that Worcester has signed ex-Quinnipiac and Sound Tigers forward Jeremy Langlois (possibly paywalled, and hat tip Darryl Hunt). Bill also […] [Read More]

Catching up: vacations, schedules, notes

on
Through all of this stuff the past few weeks, no one relegated Bridgeport to the Central League? You’re slipping, Internet. Even if you’ve been to the National Air and Space Museum on the Mall in Washington, seriously, get yourself out to Dulles and see the relatively new Udvar-Hazy Center. The grown-up review is that it’s […] [Read More]

Spam and spy cameras

on
Edit: Joe Finley has signed with Hamilton, the Bulldogs announced. New spam filter catches comments (sorry, Raul, only five days later) but lets through spam “from” that TV “doctor,” or pitching wristwatches, or… technology, baby. As soon as you get it to work the way you want it, someone will “upgrade” you. Anyway, since the […] [Read More]

Penguins come back (2x): Saturday notes

on
The story Friday in Wilkes-Barre was whether Chuck Kobasew, out since St. John’s Game 1, or Andrew Ebbett, out since the Binghamton series. could return for Saturday’s Game 5. Four points later, yes, yes they can. Game 6 is Tuesday in St. John’s after the Penguins tied it with 7:30 left, won it with under […] [Read More]

Squared away: Saturday notes

on
Notes from the stats update: Scooter Vaughan scored three short-handed goals, which led AHL rookies (as well as, um, defensemen, though that’s obviously bookkeeping; he was playing forward). Appears he’s the first Bridgeport rookie to score three short-handed goals. (Frans Nielsen did it in 2006-07, but he had too much European experience to be considered […] [Read More]
