    Nope, Anaheim Ducks. It's nice that we are giving away cowbells on opening night. I think there is also a straw hat giveaway and best overalls contest this year.

    Just waiting to see the "(Quad City) Flames Grill (Iowa) Chops" headline in the papers all season long...

    I went to one Stars game, it was actually fairly enjoyable, hardly anyone there though.

    Did they finally take the big "stars" sign down off the 2nd ave side of the well? That was embarrassing.

    Let me preface this with I am a HUGE hockey fan, but the barnstormer games are so much more fun than the stars were. I would love the chops to succeed, but I just do not see it happening.

    I don't know if I will hit up a game, but I will definitely buy a T-Shirt with an evil looking hog on it. I am sold there.

    I love the beer and fights, not so much the hockey.
