Today’s Boston Globe has a nice feature on Sam Flood ’83, producer of this year’s NHL Winter Classic (one of the very few good decisions the NHL has made in recent decades … now if only the league would move five teams from the sunbelt back to Canada …). Flood sounds excited for the opportunity:
“I know what hockey means to this town, and I know what the Bruins mean,’’ said Flood. “I know first-hand. I grew up with it. I know how much fun it is to feel the chill of the air and have the sky overhead as you’re skating. It’s a privilege and a passion to be a part of this, and we will absolutely do it right.’’
Speaking of Eph sports, don’t forget about Wednesday’s big men’s hoops match-up (barring a major upset of either team on Tuesday), in which 12th-ranked Williams will attempt to upset 5th-ranked Randolph Macon on RMC’s home court. Williams and RMC are two of only eleven undefeated teams in Division III. The game should be viewable via webcast here.
