Binghamton Senators Begin Final Season on Saturday
On Saturday, the Binghamton Senators begin their final year before they move to Belleville. I want to say that it's been a great 15 years of Senators hockey in the Southern Tier.
The highlight for most was when the Sens won the Calder Cup in 2011. For me, my greatest memory is doing Chuck-a-Puck with my girls for all of those years.
I remember the first time that Riley went on the ice with me. She was hanging on for dear life to my pant legs. I had a script in one hand and the microphone in another. Then trying to hold her too. She "loves" it when I remind her of it.
My daughter, Tara would have us practice in the backyard before the Binghamton Senators season. We would practice walking out onto the ice, I would practice what I would say and then she would say "CHUCK YOUR PUCKS!" That was our preseason.
The final season begins at the Floyd L. Maines Veterans Memorial Arena this Saturday against the Hershey Bears. Face-off is at 7:05. I'll be doing Chuck-a-Puck between the 2nd and 3rd period.
Great, great memories. Thank you and LET'S GO SENS!
