April Fool's Day


By Fred Wallace


It's April Fool's Day, and I've drawn a blank.


In the past in this spot, it was always a safe fallback to do a phoney story about a new arena facility in Owen Sound.

But with the new Rec Center Complex in the early stages, and with so much political sensitivity surrounding the venue, I'm staying away from that.

However, I will say, again, that I firmly support this city initiative, and wish only the best to those with the backbone and foresight to see this project through to its completion.

Also in the past, April Fool's Day stories with wild angles pertaining to the Owen Sound Attack were common.

But this year, it looks as if the bozos on the Internet beat me to it, taking a hair-brain statement out of Guelph and then running with it.

Joey Hishon to the Storm ? Come on !

In exchange for a pack of Storm players I wouldn't give you 45 cents for ?

Gimme a break.

And that's what I'm going to do this year; take a break from the juvenile April Fool's pranks of years gone by in this space.

I promise to return with something childish next year.

Happy Easter & enjoy the SMHLPA Tourney this weekend.

I'm Fred Wallace
