35W, no. 5; newsletter by b.n.)
Well another Wednesday has come and gone. And much like prior weeks, Bob Currao was nowhere to be seen. Supposedly he filled Mike Farrell's spot, but I am starting to think that is not the case. Geez, its not like we couldn't have used him this week. Well, then again maybe we didn't need him. I forget who his replacement was, but he must have done a hell of a job on “D” because the Pirates held the feared Green team to only three goals. I bet if Bob actually showed up, he probably would have coughed-up one or two just due to the fact of how rusty he must be.
Anyway the Pirates were able to secure goals by Marty and Russ (from LeMatty) in the 1st period. The Pirates were then able to eek out a tie in regulation when Ken had a puck re-directed off his foot for our third goal. (No, it was not a distinct kicking motion.)
And as for Bob, I'm sure we will see him next week.
