The Syracuse Crunch had a light practice around noon today. As you can imagine, everyone was in good spirits after the Game 1 victory.
Some of the players enjoyed the Toronto Blue Jays game this afternoon. There were a few of the Crunch players that happened to meet Blue Jays reliever Brian Wolfe. He was kind enough to leave a handful of tickets for today's game against the Chicago White Sox. Since I broadcast for the Syracuse Chiefs in the summer, I know Brian from his time in Triple-A. He told me after the game that he hopes to head over to watch the Crunch and Marlies play Game 2 tomorrow. That's after the Jays play the White Sox at 1 p.m. Wolfe is on the disabled list right now, so he should be able to get out right after the game.
I don't know if Marlies head coach Greg Gilbert was in a foul mood or not, but he moved up today's practice. Toronto was originally scheduled to skate at 11 a.m., but wound up taking the ice at 10 a.m. Most everyone was gone soon after the skate. That worked well for the Crunch because they were able to get on the ice at 12:15 p.m. instead of 1 p.m. That means everyone showed up at the ball game in the third inning, not the sixth.
Game 2 of the series is tomorrow afternoon at 4 p.m. You can listen to the game online, at sportsradio620.com or watch it on the B2 Network.
