  4. Think about it. Where would you have to be standing to be able to look down at the hills? Hmmm?
  5. Huntsville has hills: "Huntsville is partially surrounded by several plateaus and large hills." Knoxville has mountains.

  7. [Rapid City] Rush PA announcer to leave after working 266 straight games By Ren Clayton - KOTA Territory News
  8. Guess they hadn't heard about the RiverKings yet.
  9. Check out the distances involved here. We've been here before. Quad City to Fayetteville is about the same distance as Fayetteville to Louisiana was. Back then, the Antz had Biloxi and Pensacola to roll into a road trip.
  10. SPHL expansion 2018-19

    The latest test market anyway. Before that was Evansville, Peoria (AHL), Bloomington (CHL), Mississippi RiverKings (CHL), Pensacola, Mississippi Surge, Richmond (UHL) and Columbus. I think that's the complete list.

  13. SPHL expansion 2018-19

    Well, you got your wish Chomp. Unfortunately it landed closer to the other end of Ol’ Man River.
  14. Obviously, there are several more regional options we would love to have join our ranks. But, until suitable ownership, municipal and facility support come along in those cities (or another team decides it can no longer afford to operate in the ECHL), it looks like this league will have to expand wherever it can.
  15. It's called growth. The same thing happened to the former East Coast Hockey League.
  16. Here are the distances between the SPHL cities for 2018-19, one-way, arena to arena.
  17. Hockey to stay in the Quad-Cities By Bobby Metcalf - Quad-City Times Read more at: http://qctimes.com/sports/hockey/professional/minor/hockey-to-stay-in-the-quad-cities/article_e2215ca6-edac-5e6b-a863-70a4c0c92520.html
  18. This is cool - I don't care who you are. Every year, the Kentucky State Choir Finals are held in Louisville. And a tradition has started there where all 650 members of the competing choirs gather in the atrium of the Hyatt Regency hotel where they are staying to perform the National Anthem. You'll want to crank it up for this one. And pay attention after the 2:18 mark where the always popular higher octave segment goes double or nothing. A video of the event on Facebook has over 29 million views and 700,000 shares.
  19. SPHL adding Quad City for 2018-2019 season
  20. Actually, Marksmen3519 best you both.
