Re: Bills Beat the J-E-T-S Jets

Bills with a rather routine win 28-14 over the Giants. First time in their history they have started out 2-0 on the road. I'm not sure they are ready to take on the machine known as the Patriots...but we'll soon see if they enter that game 3-0. Brady's Bunch clearly still the class of the division.

Re: Last Baseball thread Before Hockey Season!

Since the Governors Cup (It was called by other names for awhile) was awarded in 1933, only Columbus has won it 3 years in a row...1979,80,81. Both Columbus and Rochester have won the most (10) Columbus is 10-8 and the Wings are 10-11 in the Finals. so if Durham wins this year, it will tie a league ...

Re: Last Baseball thread Before Hockey Season!

Ex-Wing (and Oriole) Tom Phoebus has died. he pitched here 1966-70 and racked up 50 wins. He was a good competitor. the old guard is slowly dying off.

Re: Training camp is near

guess it is time to start thinking hockey again. Made my final half season payment. have stopped thinking about the Red Wings. I still feel that after it all comes out in the wash, Amerks will go as far as their goaltending will take them. We won't have our defacto #1 for a couple of months, which i...

Bills Beat the J-E-T-S Jets

Bills stepped out of character today and instead of blowing the game in the 4th quarter, they came back and won it. After pretty much stinking out the place for 3 quarters, in a penalty filled, turnover filled (for Buffalo) game with no flow at all...Josh Allen did his Tom Brady impersonation and le...

Re: Sweatin' and Swattin'

Honestly yes I am...given what is now available to us....and its not much. While we haven't won anything yet as their farm team, Twins have given us a decent amount of talent over the years, and for the most part have kept our roster full. they have given us a few top notch managers and a couple of ...

Re: Old time Amerks Fans Mourn the passing of 'Seaweed'

Steve--don't think he's in. he wasn't as skilled as many Amerk goalies, but he certainly was a character while he was here. Sadly, those types of players in the AHL are long gone. they stop by for a short time; make a small (if any) impact on team and community and they are gone. Its nice that some ...

Old time Amerks Fans Mourn the passing of 'Seaweed'

Jim Pettie, the very entertaining goalie on and off the ice has passed at age 65. This news totally escaped me and apparently everyone else here too.
He was very popular, very friendly and a great teammate, as acknowledged by those who played with him back then,

Re: Sweatin' and Swattin'

...and so it ends for baseball 2019. Wings were .500, for only the 2nd time in their history. Paid attendance was best since 2010..don't know the actual turnstile count, but its always much lower. Team suffered greatly from a total lack of competent pitching, while at the same time hitting up a stor...

Re: Sweatin' and Swattin'

From 20 runs to dead bats again. but Skinner chose to use the ultra terrible Romero to try and keep it a one run game. And like clockwork...Romero 1st walks the first two and then presto....before you can blink, he gives up 3 runs to basically knock the Wings out of any chance at all of making post ...
