  1. Still get a great laugh from this one- probably the funniest Havoc ad ever! Doc
  2. The power of Facebook, Tumblr, etc is frightening. On a recent trip to Alberta, as soon as we stepped off the plane Facebook welcomed my wife to Canada, and she wasn't even logged on to Facebook. She also looked at some airbnb listings in Louisville, KY (where our son lives) and both gave recommendations (she wasn't even logged onto airbnb, just used the links supplied by our son, much less wasn't logged onto Facebook or Tumblr at the time either). Info sharing among these juggernauts is scary, which is why I'm not on any social media (except these forums). Doc
  3. As a retired Air Force Reservist, I'll drink to that! . Doc
  4. Oly and Clew also played in Huntsville and were well-liked by the fans here, too. Doc
  5. Thanks for your support (I guess). Doc
  6. There was no "official release" and it's not in the SPHL rule book. See my post on 5/15/18. So unless the Havoc coaches/staff are stupid and don't know the league policy, or they are content with having "veterans" with less total game experience than other teams' "veterans" in the league (neither of which I believe is true), consider the limit a total of 900 games. Doc
  7. Having been a team doc since 1997, starting with the Channel Cats, then the Tornado, then the Channel Cats again, and now the Havoc, let me shed some light on this. The CHL CC's folded and didn't have a team in 2001 (I guess fortunately for me since I was called up by the Air Force Reserves after 9/11 and was not able to be in Huntsville that season). John Cherney bought the franchise and renamed it the Tornado for the 2002-3 season. That name didn't stick well with Huntsville/Madison County residents as the area had (and has) been hit hard with tornadoes, so the CC name was revived for the 2003-4 season. When Keith Jeffries bought the franchise from Mr Cherney, the CC name was not allowed to continue. In fact, even banners of CC championships and retired numbers of CC players were removed from the VBC. I don't know all the politics of "The Columbus folks weren't comfortable with thew Channel Cats owner running the show. so they did a bit of a coupe, along with Knoxville, Fayetteville, and some of the WHA-2 franchises..." so I won't comment on that statement. Doc
  8. Per Havoc staff, there was a limit of 900 games combined played by "veterans" this past season, and it won't drop this upcoming season. FYI, a "veteran" is a player who has played 224 pro games. Doc
  9. How many IBs are still in town? Most of the Havoc players have already left for their homes. Doc
  10. My hockey income is $0- all volunteer. Ooooohhh noooooooo, Mr Bill, please not "The Perfesser". Government CMS and insurances set the fees paid- I'm stuck. Doc
  11. Y'all need help, but it won't come cheap- Doc
  12. Havoc would have won after the 2 games anyway under this format- though even number of goals (8 in aggregate- 6-5 Havoc at Peoria, 3-2 Rivermen at Huntsville), Havoc had more "away" goals- 6-3. Doc
  13. Sorry, I don't do telemedicine; I only treat ER patients and the Havoc team. Plus, many of those kinds of meds are OTC. Doc
  14. They will be there Wednesday, and if necessary, on Sunday. Doc
  15. Goalies just have to be on the roster for 5 games to be eligible for the playoffs- even being the back-up counts. Sakellaropoulos played (and won) on 1/6/18 and was b-u on 1/5/18 and 1/9/18 before his call-up. Thus, he needs to be listed on the roster for just 2 more games of Pensacola's remaining regular season schedule. He wasn't listed on poinstreak tonight, but Pensy didn't have a b-u goalie listed on the game sheet (as of yet, but neither did Macon) and Pensy still has 2 regular season games to go, so I'm guessing that Mr S will be eligible (I don't think Coach Bes would do something really stupid like not having an eligible b-u goalie).
