Just a little hats off to the boys from my home town of Brantford! They just won the Allen Cup!!! It is the 100th playing of the Cup!
And here is the latest news about the boys from Brantford!
I heard the other day from my dad, that the Bentley Generals were challenging the Brantford Blast to contest Allan Cup final, and that it was set be to begin and end at the Brantford Civic center, and I was just pumped! Just like every other Brantford citizen, I just couldn’t wait for the final outcome of the game. And boy we were not disappointed.
This game had everything that you wanted in a Allen cup Final. Brent Gretzky, the younger brother of Wayne, was more than likely playing his last professional game of his career. The captain of the Brantford Blast was in the same shoes. The end result was playing for bragging rights of winning the Allen cup.
Don Cherry of “CBC’s Coaches Corner, Hockey Night in Canada” had a lovely little ditty about the 2008 Allen Cup and it’s winner the Brantford Blast.
So let’s hear it for the boys from Brantford and the 2008 Allen cup championship winners!
Keep on Jammin’ Boys
