Time to introduce a true "BCHL Beauty" in my opinion. Meet Bruce Sly, or as I call him "the Canpar guy" He has been an off ice official in Nanaimo for sometime, since I've been in the league at least. Bruce is in the "tomb sin bin" and works the game clock for Clippers games. Working with Canpar he is in the enviable position to travel to both Nanaimo and Port Alberni, and he's a fixture in the rivalry of the two teams getting to talk hockey in both cities at places all over. Friday in Nanaimo I thought I had a guest for my second intermission, and for whatever reason it didn't work out. In the pressbox in Nanaimo was Bruce, and I said "get in here Bruce" as I knew he would be a good interview, in a pinch. I know those that know him wouldn't believe it to be true, but he was nervous of his radio debut. My thanks to Bruce for helping me out and doing a great job at the same time.

Funny story leading upto this weekend about Bruce. Whenever the Bulldogs-Clippers scene heats up, emails are exchanged discussing the upcoming games. I got Bruce's permission to post this part of his email from the past week
Should be a terrific weekend of hockey 6 periods and 4 points,,,,possibly more points what will happen????????
On a much more important note....
Prestige....see Fancy. High Class. The Best of the Best. The Webster says...influence arising from reputation or position...
Now all that said here is my point/request.
Ace I think that I am ready for an ACE ballcap. Monday could be a tough day for me either way the weekend goes. An ACE ballcap is what I am now in need of.
Alf I have put in my time in the trenches. I have been to the Barns and I have dealt with the people In Alberni as well as Nanaimo.
I have heard it all and then some.
Do I get the hat or not??????
I think I have earned one. If I am fortunate enough to acquire the prestigious ACE lid I think I may get it stitched with "TOMB SIN BIN" that would look good on my bean don't you think.....?
Do I get one have I earned it or do I have to do more time......
Well, when I emailed Bruce back I told him that I thought his bid for a hat would fail. I had mentioned to Ace a while back that I thought Bruce deserved a hat. Ace said he agreed, but his last hat went to JB in Chilliwack. Ace then decided to give Bruce his own hat that he was holding onto. Below is a picture I took of Bruce with his hat. Congrats Bruce, well deserved, and thanks for the interview. Also below are pictures of the sendoff at the summit, and from the hockeyville photo shoot, taken by the BIG DOG. Thanks to him, and get those pictures and ideas sent into me people! EMAIL ME
Thanks for stopping by the blog, more to come as the next games near.
