Spitfires vs Battallion: Game 5 Trash Talk Dept.

Game five of the OHL Championship series goes tonight at the WFCU Centre in Windsor, 7:05 p.m.  I fully expect Spits fans to absolutely blow the roof off the new rink tonight when the Spits take the ice, and the team is going to come out charged up and ready to roll.  I am very […]

Windsor Spitfires at Brampton Battalion: Game 4 Recap

Windsor 4, Brampton 1. My Spitfires are one game closer to (and only one win away from) their second OHL Championship.

Keeping in mind the worldwide influence of this blog, it would seem apparent to me that the appearance of the […]

OHL Championship Update

The crowd at the new WFCU Centre must have been thrilled. I am hoping to go to game 2 of the series Friday night in Brampton […]

With the OHL playoffs approaching (and the Leafs out of contention for this year’s post-season tournament), I am excited about the prospects for my former favourite team in the whole goddam world, the Windsor Spitfires.   I have to confess that it has been a long time since I attended a Spits game – I think […]

Quinn it is.

I wrote a post the other day about the Leafs/Flyers game on Wednesday night, listening to it on the radio, and the memories that awakened for me about following my teams as a kid; in particular, I wrote a little about listening to the radio broadcasts of Windsor Spitfires games. First, a correction: the games […]
