BIG Game Weekend


By Fred Wallace

 Hi this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire "


It's a BIG Game weekend, isn't it ?

Most significantly for those of us grinding through the winter months here, Wiarton Willie makes his annual prediction Sunday morning just after 8 am.

The weekend fun at Wiarton is already underway with a massive number of activities being staged.

Of course, 2 seconds after Willie pops in and out and relates the news, the never ending pre-game show for the Super Bowl begins.

Sometime around 6:30 pm Sunday, they'll actually have the kickoff in South Florida and the Kansas City Chiefs & San Francisco 49'ers will battle to see who the NFL Champion is.

Back in our region, there's plenty of significant local hockey, maybe nowhere better exemplified than in the WOAA Senior League where the top 5 teams are squished into a 4 point parameter and the games during this final weekend of the regular season will determine who finishes where.

And is it too early to start talking about the Ontario Hockey League Playoffs ?

Probably, especially with the magic number for the Owen Sound Attack to clinch a spot somewhere in the high teens.

However, there's a very distinct possibility that the two teams Owen Sound meets this weekend could be playoff opponents come late March.

Tonight at Kitchener, the Attack face the Rangers who have points in 14 straight games; how's that for a challenge ?

And then tomorrow night at home against Windsor who will be playing their third game in 3 nights when they get to the Harry Lumley-Bayshore.

It's BIG Game Weekend. Have a great weekend.


I'm Fred Wallace
