The Everblades, you see, are the anti-Panthers. They've been in the league 10 years, and Wednesday, they make their 10th playoff appearence. That's pretty good.
If you haven't been, it's a fun time. Estero, where the Blades play, is a quick drive for many in western Broward or Dade counties, with it taking about 90 minutes or so to drive from the Sunrise arena.
Tickets are cheap, the play is surprisingly good, and the team puts on a good show. The Blades open Wednesday against Columbia, S.C., with game two on Friday night. Tell 'em On Frozen Pond sent you and they might say 'Thanks.'
