Did I forget to write something?

I’m late. It’s short. This is just the kind of blog entry for which I need to be held accountable. They battle back a third time, and they get dumped on the next shift. Yipes. There was a longish chat after the game in the room, so we’ll see what follows Friday, now that they’re […] [Read More]

Booted

So Darryl Bootland walked down the hallway in a suit today at about 5, shaking hands with his new teammates, hanging out in the middle of the other room down the hall, traded for Matt Keith in a pass-in-the-night deal. He’s in tonight for the Pirates, while Keith will wear his old 27 for Bridgeport. […] [Read More]

Once there, Bentivoglio was back with Tambellini and Nielsen. Regier practiced, with Walter and Smith; he was supposed to have […] [Read More]

AHL transactions have Pitton’s reassignment finally becoming official, with Mole, Kinasewich and Haskins going back to Utah. And Raffi Torres has a torn ACL and will have surgery. Did you see The Simpsons last night? With the Bayeux-Tapestry couch gag and the happy prospector dance at the start? Good stuff. [Read More]

Philly Phlop

on
Did I say it would be good to be here? Ugh. A good first shift, anyway. And then a penalty on the third shift, and then a goal for Philly on the fourth. Bridgeport had chances, but as Newtown’s Own Pete Zingoni said, Philly kept them outside, mostly. Scott Munroe was good, and he got […] [Read More]
