NHL Predictions: Western Conference

By Sean McCafferty aka 30ranfordfan

NHL Predictions: Western Conference

We’re a few weeks into the NHL season, and everyone has played at least seven games now. This does provide a little bit of insight as to how we should expect teams to perform, but with a such a small sample it can also be very misleading. Fact is, nothing that has happened thus far has really changed my opinion of any team in the league. These early games have only served to reaffirm what I already thought, or seem to me as either a hot (or cold) start that won’t be sustained.

16 Days of Baseball – Part 5: The Voyage Home

Friday morning came, after three great nights of baseball in Florida, but the 1,468 Miles separating me from home were suddenly looking a lot farther than they had months earlier when I planned this trip. I basically had a 24 hours of driving ahead of me, with three days to get it done. I had to stop back into Zephyrhills to drop my friend off (he flew into Myrtle Beach where I met him, and was flying out a couple of days later from Tampa) so I More >

Sunday morning in Myrtle Beach came, and it was time for yet another long drive. Unfortunately, this one started out a little hung over, and we had a little better than nine hours of car time ahead of us; the destination being Zephyrhills, Florida. What’s in Zephyrhills? Well, not a lot apparently, other than a free place to stay and close proximity to a lot of baseball.

It turned out to be a relatively easy drive, but a very long day. We didn’t get the chance to do much that Sunday, other than a More >

By Sean McCafferty aka 30ranfordfan

After spending a couple of days in Cape Cod, it was time to head back to the main land, and take in a ‘AA’ game, before returning to the Cape for a fourth CCBL game that night.

When I had originally started to map out the route I’d be traveling for these two weeks, I had planned on finding a way to take in a game in Manchester, New Hampshire. I’m a Blue Jays fan, and the New Hampshire Fischer Cats are the Jay’s ‘AA’ affiliate in the Eastern League. They’re loaded with enough burgeoning talent to More >
