The Death Pool – Special Report – St. Louis Storm Fried By Lightning Strike
When it rains it pours eh kids! Sometimes you just cant find a sturdy enough umbrella, and sometimes you go stand under the tallest tree and wait for the lightning! Or, in the case of the St. Louis Storm, you go stand under the arch, holding a golf club as high in the air as you can and wait for the magic to happen! Ha Ha Ha
That’s right kids, the St. Louis Storm, formerly known as the Frontenacs have joined the recently departed.
Well so much for my trip down to St. Louis for some of that awesome Bar-B-Que. Thankfully I got me some of that fried Firechicken yesterday. Damn tasty stuff there kids, a little over cooked, but once you picked the feathers out of your teeth it was just fine.
I wonder if all the league administrators will remember this late summer of casualties when they are looking at expansion for next season. Hmmmmmm NO CHANCE!
The allure of those almighty expansion dollars is too strong. The myth that Tier III hockey is a money making proposition is just too strong for any joker with a little bit of money.
Maybe though you parents and players reading this will start to figure things out. Maybe you will figure out that the only organization you should sign with is one that has the people with experience in moving players on to Tier II and NCAA programs are the ones you should play for.
Well, time for me to get in a round of golf. Something tells me that next week and the next five weeks to come are going to be pretty busy.
