Singalong: “Whatever Became of Dono?”

on
/Furiously rewriting Tom Lehrer’s “Whatever Became of Hubert?” with Matt Donovan references Almost sent that as a tweet several times during the Islanders-Capitals playoff series, but never did. But it was true. If there’s one thing we do well around here, it’s arcane references to musical artists of the ’50s and ’60s*. Unfortunately — or […] [Read More]

Two more in: Monday notes

on
Drying out from a soggy night at Harbor Yard, though glad the Brakettes and Bluefish will give it another go on Sunday. Seemed like they were having fun. Decent crowd, too.

Bridgeport scored goals less than a minute apart twice and finished with 12 goals in two games […] [Read More]

Late-Breaking: Adirondack postgame

on
It’s kind of the story of the night: “We said let’s go and play in their end,” John Persson said. Backstory might be nice, I guess. There was a shift in the second period where Vaughan-Quine-Persson got pinned deep. Adirondack got some shots, kept it deep. Adirondack got a change, kept it deep. Adirondack forced […] [Read More]
