If someone asked you to list your five favorite sports movies, what would they be? Your list isn't complete if "Slap Shot" isn't on it. It's a movie starring Paul Newman and I can describe the movie in two words: Hanson Brothers. Did you know that some of the players from the Broome Dusters were extras in the movie?

Here's some awesome news, the Binghamton Devils will be honoring "Slap Shot" this weekend by becoming the Broome County Blades (a team in the movie.) Providence invades the area on Friday, January 31st with Rochester coming to the Floyd on Saturday, February 1st.

All weekend they'll be wearing specialty jerseys and you'll have the chance to meet Dave "Killer" Carlson (Jerry Houser) at the game. Special packages are still available with a special VIP meet-and-greet with "Killer" and a Q& A session.

After the Rochester game on Saturday, the jerseys will be auctioned off and the best part is that proceeds will benefit Sock Out Cancer as they assist cancer patients in our area. They'll split the proceeds between the Foundations at Lourdes and UHS.

Face-off is at 7:05 p.m. both nights and I'll be doing Chuck-a-Puck between the 2nd and 3rd period. LET'S GO DEV...I mean, LET'S GO BLADES!
