Who's going? IF you're not, why not? (unless you live to far away obviously).
Have you been listening to any of the Cool 880 coverage? What's your impressions so far if you have?
Predictions for tonight?
I would love too, but unfortunately, i am Closing at Ceili's. If i wasn't, i would so be there(I always bump into guy at some hockey thing or another). PS - I could do a better job announcing than the clowns they got on 880 so far, they screw up a lotta fact's, which, may get past your average fan, but we here at HF are a lil more than average fans i think.
LMHF#1 and I are going. Any word on who is starting in goal? Hopefully JDD since I have been waiting for a long long time to see him in a real game. I also hope Brodziak is playing. I think that the Runner can squeeze another one out and I have a feeling Peterson will have a strong game.
Won't be making an appearence, we are home to Lacombe tonight in Heritage Jr. B Action. Next Runners game on my schedule is looking like Oct. 29 against Houston, hopefully that game will feature Harding vs. Deslauriers in the pipes and a tilt between two former Medicine Hat Tigers' tough guys Thompson vs. Boogard!!!
I hope we win but if I was a betting man I would predict the Runners to follow their early season trend...W3-2 in OT, L1-0, W4-3...L6-2 TONIGHT (Lynch and Peterson with the Runner goals). Consistency will be a problem early in the year with all the new faces and I think the Rampage's skill will dominate tonight's game.
I was hoping I could hop on a 20 hour flight and make it to the drop of the puck. But that ain't gonna happen. Will just have to read about it here. See how much us out out out of towners need the rest of you.
Sorry GuyF I can't make it. But in true Aussie style sink a few beers for me.
Deslauriers gets the start for the Road Runners....
I don't think the radio guys are doing a bad job at all, considering Rob Brown is a radio rookie and Brian Munz has been covering the Prince Albert Raiders for a few years, and was brought in just as the season was starting. (At least when they give out of town AHL scores, they seem to be pretty much up to the minute. On CHED's Oiler broadcasts they often are 30-40 minutes behind the NHL website for updates.) (Jordy Weidman will be doing the colour on the road games this weekend)
They also said again on the pre-game show that they are working through the technical details to get the Road Runner broadcasts on line, but can't say exactly when this will happen...(I guess that station in San Antonio will be doing the baseball game of the century....)
