Norfolk Admirals

Are there any Norfolk Admirals fans in here besides me? How do think we'll do this season?

Not really a fan, but I hope they do well, since my Barons don't have to play them!

You could say that. He's an instigator....and then some. He's basically a side-show, but I heard he's a nice guy in person....on the ice, however, it's a different story. He's like a less skilled Matt Barnaby.

Neither will.


Norfolk as you saw by the new logo represents the US Naval Port while Milwaukee's was named for a classic brand of washing machine.... all you do is look for the battleship and it's Norfolk, otherwise it's Milwaukee or you see the Admirals Crew.

Whoa!
Stop!
Hold On!
Freeze!
Time Out!

Milwaukee was named the Admirals after a brand of washing machine!?!
You've got to be kidding!
I always thought it was a nautical thing based on the fact that they are on the coast of Lake Michigan!

Check the following site www.milwaukeehockey.com, the team was named the Wings for 1970, but has been mentioned as the Admirals beginning in 1970-71 according to the history you never heard of an Admiral Appliance?
