All they needed was one more game! But, not meant to be. The Syracuse Crunch dropped the 6th game of the Calder Cup finals to the Grand Rapids Griffins and they take the Cup back to Michigan. But hey, was a terrific year! Only 2 teams in a 65 team league (or it seems like 65 teams) can say they made it to the finals. Good going Crunch!
Oh well...at least we have the Syracuse Chiefs, where good seats are always available. You know, if Central New York showed about one-fourth of the fervor and enthusiasm it has for SU Basketball, Hoffman Hot Dogs, the apple fritter at the Lafayette Apple festival, and Country music shows at the NYS Fair, maybe they could put a few more fannies in the seats out at NBT Stadium on top of the 800 or so that show up there now for a game. Hey! Good seats still available.
