The Erie Seawolves continue to play well. As of this writing, they are ten games over five hundred, best record in the EL and leading the Division by five games. Might be a good summer at the Uht. We'll see if the crowds improve from previous years. I've always said that fans like to go to baseball games during the summer just to enjoy the atmosphere and nice weather during vacation or spend an evening away from the house. If the Seawolves continue to be one of the best in the league, will more fans decide to spend more time at the Uht. The local ball club certainly could use it, always being near the bottom of attendance every season in the EL.
I saw that former Chargers running back Chuck Muncie died of a heart attack at the age of 60 this past week. One of my first jobs out of college was a radio job in Uniontown, Pa. back in 1979 and had the chance to interview Muncie at that time. It was one of the first interviews of a "big time athlete" in may career.
Good move by the Pens to start Tomas Vokoun in game one against Ottawa. He's their hot goalie right now, no sense in going back to Fleury unless necessary but as I've said before, I think they will need Fleury before it's all said and done if they want to win the Cup.
London won the OHL title this week, coming back from a 3-2 deficit to win games six and seven to take the title. They continue to put together championship teams in London and to their credit, have always been among the leaders in the OHL when it comes to playoff appearances and so on. You have to wonder how they can do it and the Otters can't. I'll leave that for you to think about and discuss.
