Halfway To History Indeed
I've been hoping John Brophy was right all week long. Seems his prediction is looking good.
The legendary Admirals ECHL coach and former NHL skipper of Toronto's Maple Leafs simply knows from experience that Toronto doesn't have what it takes to win a cup anymore. He was quoted last week in the Pilot that the Admirals basically had it in the bag. The Leafs, one of the NHL's "Original 6" have 13 Stanley Cups, but are currently on a 45 year skid in their quest for the cup. Of course, geographic location aside, the Marlies should not be compared to the Leafs, though you might wonder if it is justified the way Norfolk has beat up on Toronto in the first two games of their best-of-seven Calder Cup championship series.
Regardless, I'm thrilled the Admirals are halfway to history. After a record-setting year that featured a 28-game winning streak to end the regular season, the Admirals have blown through each round of the post-season showing the league it is no fluke. Thursday night, they resume the assault on Toronto in their house. The Marlies will host games three, four, and five if neccessary. Games six and seven are slated back here at Scope if the Admirals suddenly decide to lay down their sticks just to make it interesting. If that is the case, let's sell scope out again to finish the score. Get information and Join the Battle at http://www.norfolkadmirals.com.
Probably a good thing the Admirals are on the road throught the weekend with all the craziness on the way with OpSail 2012 and Harborfest. Do yourself a favor and take the Tide to Harbor Park and avoid the parking hassle. Lots going down with two Parades of Sail and tons of great music including Bob-FM artists Colbie Caillat, Gavin DeGraw, Bruce Hornsby and the Noisemakers and Edwin McCain. Find details at http://www.opsail2012virginia.com or http://www.festevents.org. Get a link here on our site as well. Celebrate with 93.7 Bob-FM!
And just one more. I just uploaded this image of me on Twitter. I call it "Office Scuba." If you want Admirals updates, fun stuff the station is up to, or just off-beat stuff from your favorite morning guy, follow me @TheGameWorden
Keep your knob on Bob!
