I’m on a bus headed that way to get to Rentschler Field in time for the first of three games that will comprise today’s “Whale Bowl,” which is a celebration of hockey in Hartford and sort of an extension of the re-branding of the Rangers AHL affiliate from the Hartford WolfPack to the Connecticut Whale.
Army plays AIC at 1 PM, Bruins and Whalers legends square off at 4 and the Whale take on the Providence Bruins at 7…the final game is expected to shatter AHL single-game attendance records.
I’m there for ECHL.com, and it’ll all culminate in one big story on the impact ECHL alumni have made on the year’s outdoor games.
That of course means I won’t be in Trenton this weekend…which was a difficult choice to make. But I will update the blog with any relevant T-Devils info I should come across, and will probably share some info from today as well.
In a semi-related note, I just wanted to thank everyone for their kind words on the Anthony Felice story. Thought it was a really neat story, and I wanted to be able to share it without getting in the way of it.
Since I know you guys can post comments on the ol’ blog, I’m counting on you guys to keep me updated on what happens this weekend…I can look at a box score just like anyone else, but I want to have more of an idea of what happened than just the numbers.
