I have been a Redwing fan as long as I can remember,(I’m 66) My Wife and I have season tickets to the Wings AHL Calder Cup Grand Rapids Griffins. I grew up in Northern Michigan, our rink was on the shores of Lake Huron. I am in Baseball, basketball, and hockey Action leagues. I was a long time member of a football H2H league that finally folded. Thanks for letting me play some hockey, lets drop the puck!!! Thanks.  Gene.

Chesapeake Bay Hawks come under new management…

Please welcome Terry Starbody as the new owner/manager of the Cheaspeake Bay Hawks.   Please see his bio below.

I am 64 Retired worked night shift whenever possible most of working life.  Played Strat & APBA since 1960′s.  Stuck with Strat up until last month or so.  The game I remember most from early APBA days was their Golf game.  Made 2 baseball opening days at Strat-O-Matic driving from Illinois to Long Island, NY.  Baseball & Hockey is all I play.  I am very open to on-line play.

  Never played hockey but, love it.  It appears I have inherited a play-off contending team.  Hope I do not disappoint. Chicago Blackhawks fan.  If any one wants to unload any ‘Hawks….I am willing to listen.
  AIM/Buddy List is pkbooicu3.
  In late 90′s into early 2000′s I ran an EASports simulation hockey league on internet.  All 30 teams, injuries, no drafts(whatever team rookies came in the game was that team’s property).  Simmed every Tuesday & Friday.  Large website.  and on and on……
 I be ready men.

Columbia Lightning comes under new ownership…

New Owner/Manager of the Columbia Lightning is now Tony Lucio.  Here is his announcement:

Born in Chicago and raised for the most part in Los Angeles, California, my favorite sports are hockey, baseball and football as I dropped basketball a few years back after they blew up my Bulls after the championships run. Pro football could lose me if they continue down the road of interfering with the game more and more with instant replay and idiotic penalties such as the taunting rule. 

A commissioner of many sports leagues over the years having started with the APBA board game in the ‘70’s then on to include Action PC and Diamond Mind, I am glad that these games have evolved into the computer versions so that we as gamers aren’t limited to the play by mail or in person play. I am currently in the HBHA and run the Don Zimmer and Fan’s Choice Baseball leagues and looking forward to having some fun in the FHL.

Tony Lucio ( email address: tolucio1@yahoo.com)
