I updated all the OHL rosters on Talk-Sports.
My entire family and any friends who wanted a free ticket went the Brampton Battalion home opener on September 24th.
I got 300 free tickets courtesy Rogers TV to hand out. Total attendance was below 3000, so I was personally responsible for 10% of the tickets.
The Battalion lost the game 5-1 to the Erie Otters.
During the 1st intermission, my son participated in an ice contest. That's him in the white jacket getting ready.
Here's the vid of my son doing play-by-play on the ice. The contest.
Here's my son in a competition during the 1st intermission of this year's Brampton Battalion home opener. He got the loudest cheer, but that's likely because I gave out 300 tickets to the game.
He did a great job. They originally asked one of my son's friends, but he was too afraid. I told my son to step up and he jumped at the chance.
Possibly Cody Hodgson's last salute to the fans of the Brampton Battalion. He was 3rd star in the fourth game of the Colts sweep of the Battalion.
The lineup to get into the Battalion v St Mikes game last night went from the arena, to the sidewalk, down the street a block and around the corner. Oddly, there was only 3,800 at the game. Which is a lot of Mississauga, but obviously more than they are prepared to handle. We arrived about 40 minutes early, which is usually very early for an OHL game, but had to lineup around the corner.
It was a great game with Brampton winning 3-2 and taking the series in 6 games. The video is of the 3 stars (volume is noisy).
This week, I started a bunch of websites. They aren't complete. Many are just started. Enjoy!
Thanks to my brother for spawning this idea.
We just updated all the OHL rosters for the 2008-09 season.
