The Sin Bin 3/15/06

This is an episode of The Sin Bin that you definitely need to listen to. Luke DeLorenzo joined Ray and myself for the second time to discuss the ACHA National Tournament, his first season as an Icer, and take some phone calls as well. The second half of the show, as usual, was dedicated to the most recent goings on around the NHL including a very unusual story involving powdered sugar.

Note: Once again we had some trouble with the recording of the show and the last little bit of the powerplay was cut off. We promise to have this problem sorted out before we start recording shows for the third season.

The Sin Bin 3/13/06

On this episode of The Sin Bin, Ray and I review the ACHA National Tournament and all the picks that we made before spring break. We also go back and look at the trades that went down around the NHL before the deadline passed. Tune in to see if any of the trades that we forecasted actually came to fruition. And don't forget about the powerplay.

Note: The episode picks up just as we're starting to talk about the ACHA Nationals. We're not sure why but the first few minutes of the show didn't record.


Hello all,

I know you are all very upset that I haven't posted in a while and I can't blame you. I will be posting things very soon. It has been a hectic few weeks for me and I haven't been able to get things up. But don't worry, I will have old Sin Bins, Icers' games, and a PSU Football game that I've done recently. Stay tuned for some exciting stuff!

Too Long, I Know!

Well, let me be the first to apologize for the lay-off of posts on both here and on The Sin Bin's site. See it was that wonderful time in a college student's life known as "Spring Break!" However, my Spring Break was not as exciting as a lot of college students. I simply went home and worked, but the positive side of it was that I got to spend 11 days with my girlfriend, who I love, so that made my break. But back to the important stuff, the posts. I will hopefully be catching up on posts within the next few days, however, I am a college student so I still have to bust my ass to keep up with my work load.

Finally, allow me to be the first to wish two belated birthdays to my fellow ComRadio-ans and fellow bloggers, Chris "The Mauler" Mueller and "The Mediator" Ryan Chadwick. Both of these fine gentlemen turned 21 over Spring Break and as Ryan Chadwick would say, "somewhere liquor stores and beer distributors are smiling!"

Hopefully the posts will be up soon so until that time, I'll catch you on the flip side!
