BRAKE TIME: That's wild

on
Top of the fourth tonight at DeLuca, Canada leads 1-0, has second and third with two out after a strikeout; ace leadoff hitter Melanie Mathews*, who’s already 2-for-2, is up. Manager John Stratton — who hates the intentional walk — calls for the intentional walk. Catcher Germaine Fairchild holds her left arm out. Hard-throwing pitcher […] [Read More]

Bye, Bergie?

on
At last, Sean Bergenheim’s name — or more accurately, the Cyrillic characters that sum to “Sh. Bergenkhaim” — has appeared on Lokomotiv’s Web site. “May the road rise to meet you” and all that. In other news, isn’t Swedish just one of those languages you look at and think you should be able to read? […] [Read More]

Timing

Always wanted to see a game in Glens Falls. Adirondack was near legend, plus they broke my teen-age heart once. Well, now I would have an excuse, with an Islanders-nonDevils* AHL exhibition game going there Sept. 30… except that’s the day of the Islanders-Devils NHL exhibition game in Bridgeport, and that’s no doubt the story.
