    Re: Welcome to New Team Owners:

    Hey Whit,
    Yes i live in Brockville, Ontario, Canada. Its about 3 hours east of Toronto right along the border of Ogdenburg, NY. A "Frontenac" is a local nickname used by one our junior hockey teams. It gets its name from Fort Frontenac named after the French Governor who was battling the British here in the 7 Years War during the 1800s.

    QHowes

    Thats great...always nice to know the how/why/where of team names. Great to have owners outside of the US. Especially our Northern North American friends!
    Posted what I'm looking for the the trade talk section. Also, feel free to vote on the poll that open on salary cap issue and fill out the Corona ? and A ...would help us to get
    to know you as a new owner and would be nice to also get a Canadian prospective. Don't have to, but as for me, I have more time than ever to stay active in this league as it is
    also my only league and a 2 simmer pace. I recommend not taking up too many leagues, as I get older- I realize my pace is much more happy to slow down the pace and just enjoy!

    I've been to Ogdensburg and heard of the Battle of Fort Frontenac. In fact, I took an undergraduate history colloquium in Spring 2005 that focused exclusively on the Seven Years War, so we had plenty of time to study battles of 1758 which marked a turning point in favor of the British in North America.

    What ? ! A smartbenny24 post! Benny I can't let make a post without asking if you have a slight urge to come back to take up a lawnchair here. Rewster's team needs an owner and I couldn't think of anybody else better to fill that vacancy than YOU. Rew , has had tough times and that honor to take that team and do them the justice they deserve would be an epic site to see . Just asking my friend...if you have the urge, your the man for the vacant Rewster team, nobody better and I mean that.

    Thanks for the kind words, Whit, but I'm still not interested in returning at this time. My post was an effort to provide a historical point of clarification more than anything else.

    BTW, Bunch Moonshiners came from the fact that I live in Bunch, actually 1 mile outside of Bunch, and this side of Oklahoma had their share of moonshiners in their day. I say it is jest as I don't use alcohol at all.
