Daily Pucking Grind. Clarence Clemons Week Continues. June 21st.

    Today’s music choice’s on Toothfer Tuesday are Ramrod and Lonesome Day from Bruce Springsteen.  Again both songs featuring the powerful saxophone of “The Big Man”, as we pay tribute to Clarence all week long.

    The Florida Panthers are running another promotion for their fans, and you might as well take a shot at it.  The official Panther website is giving you a chance to pick the team that will take the ice this season.  Called “Be The G.M”., the person that comes closest to building their roster to the actual team wins a team signed 2011-2012 home sweater. I’ll be taking my stab at this myself and I’ll post for you my selections.  Knowing that the Panthers have a ton of cash to spend, and that the salary cap floor has been raised, combined with the fact that I love to spend other people’s money, you’ll want to see my roster.  Give it go yourself.  Who knows, if we all come up with similar players, maybe they’ll take our advice.
