My first experience with hockey was attending an NHL Exhibition at Memorial Coliseum in 1991. At that time, I learned about the Winter Hawks. They were hot.....but not now! And certainly not after today's news. Dean "Scooter" Vrooman, the long-time voice of the Hawks (25 years to be exact), stepped down today. I've known Scooter for about 8 years now....and I know he's one of the hardest working guys I've ever known. A call placed to his office on Thursday said he has resigned and will no longer be checking voicemail from that number.
No Mike Williamson...and now no Scooter?? I was on hand the day the new ownership group held their press conference about a year ago. I drank the Kool-Aid they were serving up that day. But all I can think about now is how much they've royaly screwed up this once proud franchise. Are you kidding me, J's? (Jack, Jim and John make up the ownership group). You've got some 'splainin to do guys!!
How 'bout holding a press conference....and letting the public attend? I'm sure you won't be getting a stamp of approval by anyone.
