looks like you've been practicing for that mom job you've got coming up there
LOL, I dunno if it's that. I'm 35, and my job for the last ten years has been dealing with *******s (not saying Jstffwhatever is an *******, just a difference in opinion here), so I've learned to filter what gets to me.
Finally, hockey fans, you have a name to rally behind.
The new Southern Professional Hockey League franchise coming to Pensacola will be known as the Ice Flyers.
Alan Siskind, who has represented owner Tim Kerr's much-debated franchise, said the name is fitting.
"The name selected keeps close to the recognition of the closeness we have to the Naval aviation and also to Tim's hockey success with Philadelphia," Siskind said.
A popular guess among the hockey faithful thanks to Kerr's background as a player for the NHL's Philadelphia Flyers, the new name is a chance for hockey to start over in Escambia County.
New team, new league
Many citizens are against hockey's return after the debacle that was Mario Forgione's Ice Pilots.
The perception is that the team failed. That hockey failed.
But this is a new team, a new situation, a new goal.
SPHL franchises have less overhead than teams in the ECHL, the Ice Pilots' former league.
Also, players commonly stay with a team the entire season in the SPHL, so fans are able to get to know the players on and off the ice.
The SPHL also plays most of its games on the weekend. Last season the Columbus Cottonmouths played 42 of their 60 games on Friday or Saturday. Of those 42 games, 21 were at home. The nine remaining games were played on Tuesday or Thursday.
