Sounds pretty good, especially the scrimmage.

I got an "invatation" in the mail for the season ticket holders thing even though I only bought a 10 pack? Does that mean I can go?

Funny you should mention that. Whenever they bashed the Lightning, I tried to post a response in defense of the team, but my comments would never get posted. They were even nice comments but the mods didn't want anybody to post support comments for the team so I sent them a nasty post and dared them to put it up which, of course, they didn't. Hasn't happened as much recently but I don't usually comment on TSN anymore because most of the comments are from illiterates and the heavily medicated.

Koules gets a parking ticket and it's headlines to them....

Rosters are set, obviously you don't want it under these circumstances but it's so great what the Lightning are doing.

Team Navy
Martin St. Louis (Lightning Forward)
Steven Stamkos (Lightning Forward)
Jeff Halpern (Lightning Forward)
Andrej Meszaros (Lightning Defenseman)
Stan Neckar (Lightning Alumni)
Wes Walz (Lightning Assistant Coach)
Ray Thill (Lightning Head Equipment Manager)
Rob “Bubba” Kennedy (Lightning Assistant Equipment Manager)
Clay Roffer (Lightning Assistant Equipment Manager)
Michael Hutner (Tampa Police Department)
Frank Ruedy (Tampa Police Department)
Tommy Mayer (Tampa Police Department)
Mark Cholnik (Tampa Police Department)
(G) John Finnie (Brandon Ice Sports Forum)
Coach – Ian Beckles (620 WDAE Radio Personality)

Team White
Ryan Malone (Lightning Forward)
Adam Hall (Lightning Forward)
Mattias Ohlund (Lightning Defenseman)
Victor Hedman (Lightning Defenseman)
Matt Walker (Lightning Defenseman)
Dave Andreychuk (Lightning Alumni)
Chris Dingman (Lightning Alumni)
Brian Bradley (Lightning Alumni)
Nigel Kirwan (Lightning Video Coach)

The reason why they needed a fill in for Team Navy's goaltender is because Cpl. Mike Roberts played goaltender for TPD's hockey team.

Apparently he does go to alot of games as a fan.

He's also from Montreal so using hf logic he will know far more about hockey than anyone here.

I know what he looks like. I have never seen him. Ever. I have seen Derek Sharpe there as a fan and as media. The key for me is who shows up to cover stuff when they put out a spread. Free food attracts everyone, and I have never seen him.

Speaking of free food, I really hope they offer the media buffet during training camp again this year. That was heaven.

Finnie's the practice goalie that comes out and plays when one of the regular two takes a practice off. He should do just fine.

I have to tip my hat to the lightning organization as a whole. The fact that they got together and put together a fundraiser for this fallen officer's family is huge.

As a huge hockey fan and a NJ Devils season ticket holder as well as a local police officer for the past ten years, I can only hope our organization can show half the class in one of our local community's time of need.

With that said my family and I will be at the October 31st game against the Devils. We will be sitting right behind the visitors bench and are looking forward to a great time.

Good luck this season
