I am a Paperwork Ninja. I fill out forms in the shadows... woo scary!

I love my teams, but I do have some special affection for certain other teams, like:

The Chicago Cubs. With the Cardinals, they make the Best Rivalry In Baseball.

The Montreal Canadiens & Toronto Maple Leafs. It's the Red Sox-Yankees of hockey.

Jr. Blues Tryout Camp - July 8-10

Is an entire summer without hockey making you twitchy and irritable? If you need a quick hockey fix, the Springfield Jr. Blues will have their tryouts this weekend. There look to be a few games each day of the camp. Come on up and see who makes the team! I don't see anything about prices, so for those of us who get season tickets, it's a good way to scout out good seats for the upcoming season.

Jr. Blues Make Puck Daddy the hard way

The webcast announcer for the Springfield Jr. Blues made some comments that were homerish at best and unprofessional at the very least. After that game he offered a retraction. Considering the way Topeka was managing to play and drawing penalties, I can't blame him for being frustrated enough to say what he said.
