Another tough loss...

Birds drop another tough one tonight 5-4 in overtime to the Blazers up in Kamloops.

This team has a handful of reasons why they should be getting their doors blown off in most of these games but that doesn't seem to be happening. The tough thing about losing streaks is that tend to have a snowball effect where things just keep getting worst until at some point you bust out of things, normally by dumb luck.

Give these kids credit, they have every reason to fold up the tent on this season and start shining up their golf clubs and they're still fighting most nights trying to end this thing. It should be really close to a sellout tomorrow night... Let's hope the fans can give the Birds just a little extra juice to pick up a win.

How many times have you seen a baseball player mired in a 0-15 slump and he busts out of it by dropping in a "Texas Leaguer" over the 2nd base bag. I kind of feel like that's what it will take to put this losing streak to rest.

The "good" news is that they were able to "gain" ground on Edmonton tonight as the Oil Kings defeated Lethbridge at home tonight to pick up a whole 2 points.

Seattle now has 39 points to the 38 for Edmonton. Lethbridge however is the other team in this "race" and they of course missed on a chance at getting any points. Prince George still refuses to give up any ground in the race for the #1 pick, losing their 4th straight tonight in Red Deer.

Tbirds have begun their absolutely brutal stretch of games to end the season. Starting with the Moose Jaw home game last Friday the Tbirds finish the season with 17 games in 31 days. I didn't even realize until looking at the schedule tonight that Seattle finishes the final 4 weekends of the season with home games on Saturday and Sunday each and every weekend. As my wife so simply put it "I hope they win at least one of those games...." Yes I think we all do.
