Is it going seven games now that the Oilers have captured a huge win in Overtime on a short-handed goal? This could get pretty hot if the Canes don’t win up in Edmonton on Saturday night. Wednesday night’s game was very pressure-packed and exciting and I only wish for the sake of the Hockey people that all games could be as tight and captivating as Wednesday’s action was but it does not work that way. You will see one game like the OT game 5 every once in a blue moon. The NFL seems to have the most luck when it comes to having close and exciting games on weekly basis.
Will it go seven games and if the series comes back to Raleigh will the momentum swing in the favor of the Oilers? I don’t know these type of things, you Hockey people are supposed to have all the answers. Let’s get it shaking and see what the Fans are sayig.
The fans of the Greensboro Revolution are wondering if the team is going to be able to finish the season. The coach(Mark Saunders) quit and the players aren’t getting paid. No paychecks and the ball starts to take some funny bounces and so do the checks. What will happen to the Revolution? Will the Cone Family(Ed included) come in and save the team? Will Indoor/Arena Football ever make it here in the Gate City? Charlie Harville said before he died that Football should be played outdoors and that bathrooms should be outside too. So much for progress. Doug Cockman questioned the foundation of the Indoor team before they ever took the field. Here at GS.com, Doug said that the owner Tony Pewonski was a crook and that he should be run out of town. Doug and Jim Scott(long time local PA announcer) both had mixed feelings about Pewonski and the way he failed to pay previous players and employees. It looks like Scott and Cockman were right in their insight and observations.
We wish the Greensboro Grasshoppers much luck when they get back to town on Friday night to open up a three game series with the Lexington Legends(Houston Astros farm hands) to close out the first half of the South Atlantic League season. The Hoppers could use some luck and good fortune after all the injuries and bad breaks that have been coming their way as of late. Get out to the ballpark, there will be a Big Fireworks show on Friday night after the game and Jim Modlin and Spaz will have Hot Dog eating contest during the 7th inning stretch.
