Canada vs. Russia was amazing! But, I got curious. I flipped around to the Belleville vs. Mississauga game and the Oshawa vs. Kingston game, just to see what the crowds were like. In a word, missing! Given the gravity of the Olympic game I wasn’t surprised that two struggling teams would have a hard time getting fans to believe, but the salute goes to Todd Smith. Todd has been around Belleville a long time and does the play-by-play of home games on cable. I caught his comment about the crowd and chuckled. Here’s the paraphrase… I guess we shouldn’t be surprised at the sparse crowd tonight in Belleville. Afterall, the hockey world is focused on a much bigger contest….. Owen Sound is at Erie! Well played.
