The people have spoken

You people crack me up. I have gotten several emails over the last two days alerting me that Larry Sterling, the former Port Huron goaltender, has signed with Dayton and could be at Memorial Coliseum on Friday.

I had tweeted this news (@jgkomets) and it had been mentioned in the comments here, but I guess I had underestimated how much you were all looking forward to chanting, “Laaaaaaaaary.”

So, I apologize. You all love to hate on him, don’t you? Funny, too, because he’s told me he loves the reception he gets at the Coliseum.
