OK, folks, The Blog has a game story up on adn.com about the Alaska Aces' ECHL Kelly-Cup clinching victory Monday night, and an additional story and notes, plus some pictures have been added.
Just got into Chicago recently after busing with the team here overnight. The bus was loud. There was much celebrating. There was some writing about the 4-0 win at Cincinnati that clinched the franchise's third championship -- odd atmosphere for that.
We start flying out of here late this morning, bound for Anchorage and, for the Aces, no doubt a rowdy reception at Ted Stevens International Airport.
There will be a season wrap-up in the Wednesday edition of the dead-trees ADN, with some additional info. Hope to get that done after a long nap upon returning home.
After that, some blessed time off.
