The party is raging on the southwest coast of the Sunshine State tonight because the Florida Everblades won Game 6 of their conference finals Thursday night forcing a decisive Game 7 Friday night in the friendly confines that is Germain Arena.
The Blades beat Dayton 6-3 tonight in their do-or-die game. According to the Naples News, the Everblades have never played in a Game 7 in their nine year playoff history.
I'm making the drive across the 'glades tomorrow morning, but unfortunately it's not to visit the Blades. Covering the Marlins in Tampa -- err, St. Petersburg. Hear it's supposed to be a nice night for a ballgame. Hope there's a nice breeze coming off the bay, maybe I'll open the press box window to get some fresh air. Whaddaya mean they play in a dome?
Rumor is they played hockey there at one time. College basketball too.
