A Strange Dream Not Involving Waffles, but Pat Quinn?

In the absence of any game analysis or waffle throwing evaluations, I thought I would simply share an odd dream I recently had….

I awoke last night in a cold sweat with cloudy thoughts of a Jeremy Roenick game winner, Dominik Hasek and Arturs Irbe standing on their heads and an unusual amount of players screaming at NHL referees. Ok, so I had a strange dream, our old GM Pat Quinn had actually taken over Brian Burke’s mind and body and was in actuality our current GM in the form of Burkie. Now that I have lost most of you, to the remaining readers let me at least explain further.

Underdog ’89 Petes never quit

Reunion for team on Saturday night

Canadian Olympic hockey coach Mike Babcock recently said a team which wins a championship walks together forever.

That’s exactly how members of the Peterborough Petes’ 1989 OHL championship squad feel.

While some haven’t seen each other in many years, it will be like they were never apart when the Petes honour the 20th anniversary of their victory prior to Saturday’s game against the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors at 7 p.m. at the Memorial Centre.

Andy MacVicar, now a school liaison officer with the Halifax police, played on a line with the ’89 team’s marquee names — Mike Ricci and Tie Domi.
