Ah Danny, methinks thou dost protest too much in your letter to the editor “Coming up Short,” May 25.
In his column (“Cup final dream ends too early,” May 23) Robin Short was merely commenting on the series against Norfolk. And, as a result, he might have been right by saying that they were “mercifully” put “out of there misery.”
After all, the Admirals were an unusually formidable opponent.
However, a quick view of any of the several repeats of the “Out of the Fog” broadcasts on Rogers Cable over the past few days would clearly demonstrate Mr. Short’s overall superlative appreciation for the IceCaps, their players, coaches and fans.
As a sports fan, I saw as many IceCaps games as I could and watched the rest on TV.
In other words, I got caught up in the frenzy as much as anybody, and I don’t think I rooted as passionately for a hockey team since the ’67 Leafs. It was nice to finally have a team to cheer for.
Yes, Mr. Williams is correct, that we are all proud of the IceCaps accomplishments and their “players, coaches, trainers and staff,” but to single out
one column about one series by one reporter and extrapolate to a failure to comment on the accomplishments of the whole year is stretching things a little too far. Shame on you, Mr. Williams.
I am entitled to my opinion, as well, and am looking forward to Season 2.
