    Johnny Orr Banner in Hilton

    Went to my first game of the year last night. Aside from the game, i really liked the new banners, especially for the Olympians.

    But...has anyone commented on the Johnny Orr banner? Did i miss it in another thread? It says 1981-1994, which is wrong. Should be 1980-1994, right?

    Not a fail.

    1980-81 was his first season. In sports that span two calendar years, it's commonplace to refer to the season by the ending year -- i.e., 1980-81 is the 1981 season.

    That makes sense. Just seems a little misleading when you look at it, though.

    Of course, it's also misleading to say 80-94, which implies 15 years (seasons), when it's only 14. Perhaps less misleading, but when there's no perfect right answer . . .


    May my posts be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)
