While driving in a rain storm..so no promises... Pirates and Cannibals war at the rink. Ralz and Stonehill exchange blows. Lematty tallies twice than misses open net for the hat. Pirates give up two powerplay goals yet win 4-2. Devils choke after certain of their own fans openly root against them on Pirates night at the Rock. Lemaire calls it quits. Smellavision to replace to replace tellivision. This is the headline news version of the pirates newsletter for Sunday April 24th.
In other news, the wednesday pirates play monday night. The game has been changed to 9 from 8, so expect half the team at 805 and the rest at 905. Pirates fashion watches will be designed by Harris, modeled by Wildman and sold by Eddie to help alleviate the chronic lateness of our club.
I survived writing this in a downpour. Nice win last night and an excellent show of restraint after things got chippy!
