There's still hockey in Toledo - While the Toledo Cherokee have been around for some time, I'd think its following has been niche and smaller. But, today's Blade has a good story about the team moving up in talent level (Junior B to Junior A).

Michael Vick indicted - This guy and his brother have always just missed the reach of the long arm of the law. It now appears he will get caught on this one.

Mud Hen's player is charged with felonious assault against teammate! - First we have road-rage, now we have Club House rage. The player on the recieving end had facial injuries that require surgery. It's getting a little scary around here.

Rocket football makes history, the good kind - While perusing the ESPN web site they have Chuck Ealey's victory in the Tangerine Bowl as the #89 of the greatest moments in college football. Ya' gotta love it when the hometown boys make good. Even ESPN states that Ealey had the "most successful career in college history", yet he is not in the College hall of fame. Might this change the thinking now that the major sports outlet has even acknowleged this feat?

UT's Athletic department is ordered to reorganized by the university president - It looks like the betting scandal has brought some attention on the athletic dept.? Anyway, The Blade is reporting a major reorganization. The cool part The Blade's web posting is the ability to download the pdf with UT memos and listen to an mp3 of Dr. Jacobs in the interview for the article.

Arena Meetings? - I heard a blurb on the news that there are meetings scheduled with Lucas County officials to discuss the arena project. I can't find the schedule on-line.

Mudhens mens bathroom - gross! - Had an awesome time at the Mud Hens game this past Sunday night, until I went into the bathroom. Is it always like that? The floor had like a half inch of, well, pee on it, and it stunk really bad. I almost fell down trying to walk through it. Do people have that much of a problem hitting the toilet? Maybe there was a leak or an over flowing toilet or something, but dang, I would have been pretty mad if I would have fallen, I was able to catch my balance.. I was imagining if I did fall, my wife would have made me sit a few seats away from her I'm sure.

R.I.P. Toledo Storm - A hearty thanks to Coach Nick Vitucci and his staff, and all of the Toledo Storm players -- past and . . . past, I guess, since there is no more present. (And, on behalf of my oldest son, good luck Matt Zultek!)

More Rocket Troubles - Richard Davis showed up at a house at 4:30am, with a shotgun in hand and a pistol in his car. He was presumably going to scare a fellow teammate with whom he had a dispute.

University of Toledo point-shaving scheme? - Compling a list of stories here. "A criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Detroit said the player, Harvey “Scooter” McDougle Jr., 22, a senior, recruited football and basketball players to participate in the scheme spearheaded by a Sterling Heights man identified only as “Gary.” The alleged scheme stretched from fall 2003 through winter 2006, the complaint alleges."

Toledo Storm Logo? - While pondering possibly going to a Storm game soon, it occurred to me that I thought the Storm's 15th Anniversary logo was supposed to eventually morph into a new primary logo for the team, replacing that God-forsaken MS Paint job they use now. What happened to this?

UT men's hoops win West Division - A gutty win Thursday night at NIU gives the UT men's basketball team the MAC West Division title, and it guarantees the Rockets at least a #2 seed in the MAC tourney in Cleveland in a couple of weeks. With three games left, the Rockets have a good chance of winning the MAC regular season title. "Toledo is currently tied with Akron for the best record in the conference." The ultimate goal, however, is winning the MAC tournament and making the NCAA tourney. "It's been a long time, 27 years to be exact, since the University of Toledo men's basketball team played in the NCAA Tournament."

Great, now who's gonna get in fights for the Storm? - Week old news is still news when I just heard about it today. Storm defenseman Paul Crosty, the ECHL (unofficial) leader in fights with 15, was promoted to the Manchester Monarchs last week. So far in a week's action he's already picked one fight in the AHL.

Any Blue Jackets Fans? - As I listened to Columbus' 5-game win streak come to an end last night against Phoenix, it occurred to me that I was probably the only one bummed by the news. It's hard enough to be a hockey fan alone, but the NHL has flat-out locked the Blue Jackets out of Toledo, keeping us in cahoots with Detroit.
