  1. Maybe we don't want the Bay Center in Alabama in the condition it's in right now.
  2. FHL's Future Unclear?

    So you lived in a part of the city that was "trash"- why generalize your 1st phrase to the whole city??? I agree with the rest of your post.
  3. FHL's Future Unclear?

    I was born and reared in Winston-Salem, my father still lives there, my mother's buried there. I disagree with the statements that W-S is a "trashy city" and it's "trash". I will more than grant you that the arena is small, outdated, and in a bad part of town; and that W-S has not supported, and probably won't support, hockey. Maybe, just maybe, if a new arena was built in a better part of town, hockey might succeed- the baseball team moved from the old Ernie Shore Field to a wonderful new facility near I-40 and are doing OK (but of course baseball has done well ever since the old days [when I was growing up] when they were a Red Sox minor league affiliate).
  4. Somehow I will post the letter from the SPHL office- give me some time to work on it. Doc
  5. Let's put this baby to bed. Posted in the Havoc locker room (note the date- Oct 5, 2017): https://web.mail.comcast.net/service/home/~/?auth=co&loc=en_US&id=860761&part=2
  6. It's not only in tonight's Havoc game (see below), but it seems to me that most of the penalties called in games so far have been for slashing. Have the refs been instructed to more strictly enforce this? Doc PENALTIES Period 1 Pensacola - Mark Esshaki - (Slashing), 2 MIN, 10:43 Huntsville - Shawn Bates - (Slashing), 2 MIN, 15:17 Period 2 Pensacola - Phil Bushbacher - (Slashing), 2 MIN, 0:39 Pensacola - Kyle Haines - (Slashing), 2 MIN, 16:55 Period 3 Huntsville - Andy Willigar - (Slashing), 2 MIN, 4:48 Pensacola - Robert Lepine - (Slashing), 2 MIN, 12:47 Pensacola - Kyle Haines - (Roughing), 2 MIN, 14:05 Huntsville - Danny Smith - (Spearing) (Major), 5 MIN, 14:05 Huntsville - Danny Smith - (Spearing) (Game Misconduct) (62.5), 10 MIN, 14:05 Pensacola - Stephen Hrehoriak - (Slashing), 2 MIN, 19:12
  7. Do I detect a latent hint of misogynist thinking in the above statements? There are a significant number of male nurses now. This is the modern era; the nursing profession is no longer solely the domain of women (and yes, there are women with facial hair, some more than others, through no fault of their own). Kudos to all nurses- they take wonderful care of their patients, and a special shout-out to ER nurses, who under often trying circumstances do amazing things in doing their job to help the sick and injured.
  8. Why- do he and his significant other not want a pregnancy?
  9. Sorry, JMC, I don't have a smartphone. Yes, I'm an old fogey- I have a flip phone. Don't believe me? Just ask my wife, anyone in the ER, or anyone associated with the Havoc. Don't need a device for anything but talking and texting. I'm not up 24/7- been working nights in the ER for the last 14-15 years- have to sleep sometime, and I sure do need my "beauty sleep"- gettin' way too old and quicker day by day. I don't want to be disturbed by anything except something my wife or the Havoc might need or a disaster response to the ER. And I will leave the instant updates to Marksmen3519. Doc
  10. Lots of bacteria grow in "cultures". Doc
  11. P.O.'s question: "I really don't know the answer to the following question- who pays for the plane tickets- the player or the team calling him up?" P.O. et al (tried to "quote" several of the posts on page 1 of this thread): FYI: Just got back from the VBC and running some errands. Talked with Havoc staff- the ECHL is responsible for travel expenses both ways.
  12. One or the other has lysdexia.
  13. Roster

    Just came from the rink and talked to the Havoc staff. Teams are allowed 19 players on contract (in addition to any on IR), but only 18 are allowed to dress and be on the bench. Doc
  14. Unfortunately, I have to agree with P.O.- and you, Vol, as a law enforcement officer, have I'm sure had to deal with this problem- I've seen it too many times in the ER where police/deputies/troopers won't charge someone with DUI unless they've physically seen the person driving (or riding- as in the case of someone riding a horse, which I've seen in the ER, or an ATV, etc). P.S.- sorry about the run-on sentence, P.O. Doc
