WHILE THIS SUMMER WAS SUPPOSED TO A MORE NORMAL SUMMER THAN LAST, AND FOR THE MOST PART IT HAS BEEN, THE WAYNESVILLE FOOTBALL TIGERS HAVE NOT HAD EITHER OF THEIR SCHEDULED 7 ON 7 PASSING CLINICS……ONE WAS CANCELLED BECAUSE OF WEATHER BACK ON JULY 1ST, AND LAST SATURDAY’S CANCELLATION AT COLUMBIA BATTLE WAS DUE TO CAUTION AND COVID PROTOCOL, WITH THE CURRENT SPIKE IN CASES AROUND THE STATE ON THE RISE…..
LAST YEAR, THE TIGERS OPTED OUT OF THE JAMBOREE, THEN GOT QUARENTINED PRIOR TO THE START OF THE SEASON AND DID NOT GET THEIR GAME WITH PARKVIEW RE-SCHEDULED…..

Notables:
RHP Dalton Roach faced just one over the minimum through 7.0 one-run frames, not allowing a hit until the 5th and blanking the Riders until the 7th… LHP Domingo Robles made his first relief appearance since 2016 and dealt 2.0 perfect innings for his second professional save… 1B Luken Baker homered for the second straight day with a three-run blast in the 3rd, his team-best 14th home run of the season.

blues

A FEW YEARS BACK, NHL TEAMS WERE TOLD BY LEAGUE OFFICIALS, THEY HAD TO LEAVE PLAYERS UNPROTECTED DUE TO THE ENTRY OF THE VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS COMING INTO THE LEAGUE…THEY NEEDED PLAYERS…
THIS OFF SEASON, THEY’LL DO IT AGAIN WITH THE ENTRY OF THE SEATTLE KRAKEN, THE NEWEST ADDITION TO THE NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE….

AFTER BACKSTOPPING THE MONTREAL CANADIENS TO THE STANLEY CUP FINAL, CAREY PRICE HAS BEEN LEFT UNPROTECTED FOR THE SEATTLE KRAKEN EXPANSION DRAFT…THAT WAS ONE SURPRISE..
ANOTHER IS THAT OF ST. LOUIS BLUES WINGER VLADIMIR TARASENKO, JUST TWO YEARS REMOVED FROM HOISTING THE STANLEY CUP….OF COURSE TARASENKO ASKED THE BLUES FOR A TRADE EARLIER THIS MONTH…THINKING THE BLUES COULD GET SOMETHING WORTHY FOR TARASENKO, HIS INJURIES OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS HAVE LIMITED HIS ABILITY TO PERFORM AT THE LEVEL THE BLUES THOUGHT HE WOULD…

CALGARY EXPOSED CAPTAIN AND 2019 NORRIS TROPHY-WINNING DEFENSEMAN MARK GIORDANO. AND CAROLINA SURPRISINGLY MADE FORWARD NINO NIEDERREITER AVAILABLE.
THE LEAGUE RELEASED THE PROTECTED LISTS OF ALL 30 TEAMS ELIGIBLE FOR THE EXPANSION DRAFT SUNDAY MORNING. SEATTLE WILL PICK ONE PLAYER FROM EVERYONE EXCEPT VEGAS — WHICH JUST WENT THROUGH THIS PROCESS IN 2017 — AND ANNOUNCE THOSE SELECTIONS AT THE EXPANSION DRAFT WEDNESDAY NIGHT.
