For those of you who may not know, the NHL’s Hartford Whalers moved down to Raleigh in the 90’s and became the Carolina Hurricanes. Now, they’re coming back down here again (sort of) via their new expansion USL side. They even kept the old Whalers colors, but we like to think that the red star on their crest is for the Canes winning the Stanley Cup. Thanks, fellas!
There’s a lot of crossover between Red Eye Rowdies and OCS members, so we’re calling this “Dead Whales Hockey Night.” We’ll be hosting fellow Caniacs at our tailgate and repping both of our local men’s pro teams for this match. Southern Pines beer will be plentiful, and hot dogs will be cooking on the grill. Come join us!
