Breakfast With The Avalanche


These Sunday morning 11am start times are a bit bizarre, but what the hell. My guess is that NHL schedulers didn't want to compete with the Sunday night American Gladiators finale. Fair enough. Still, something doesn't feel entirely right about hockey and coffee.....beer? Coffee......The Avs come out of the gate flying, but then Arnason whiffs on a wide open net leading to an odd man rush the other way. Liles draws a penalty on the breakaway and of course the Hawks cash in the PP. Seems to be the way of the Avs quite a bit lately. I like their energy, but squandering scoring chances is becoming routine....

On a separate note, there is an awful lot of talk in this morning's paper about the possibility of Fogg coming back to the Rox to compete for the 5th spot or as a long reliever. Make it happen, O'Dowd.

Special teams - not so special.

The Hawks seem to have our number...

Turns out mrs. tooth is a fan of Titan. But in the end it's all about Evan.

Titan's kind of Sally.

Plus, he's the one new gladiator that stole his name from an old gladiator. Titan use to be a big black dude.

there are only a finite number of names that really work for gladiators ...there must be some recycling.

Evan and Monica were both unstoppable. The 2-hr gladiators was a little much with too much talk, too little action. What, no Gauntlet, no Bridge, no Powerball. Should've had all of the events and less banter.
