Tend The Farm ~ From the wind-swept plains of Oklahoma comes Tend The Farm, where the little seedlings called Barons one day hope to blossom into full time Oilers -- one season at a time. Oh, and, farming the Oilers ain't easy.

Sundogs and Cutthroats go the way of the Dodo

Sundogs and Cutthroats go the way of the Dodo

If you haven’t heard by now, you’ve probably been living under a rock, but the Arizona Sundogs and the Denver Cutthroats have both announced their dormancy for this upcoming Central Hockey League season. The move brings back a few memories of the Oklahoma City Blazers…

OKC Barons Unveil “New” Third Jersey, It’s Old School Oil

OKC Barons Unveil “New” Third Jersey, It’s Old School Oil

Orange you glad that you visited the blog today? Puns aside, the Oklahoma City Barons unveiled the newest “third” jersey that will be worn during the 2014-2015 season. During the 2013-2014 campaign one of the most popular jerseys quickly became the limited edition Special Olympics Barons Buddies sweater that were auctioned off to the highest bidder. Details of that bid are found here.

This most likely fazes out the road copper and navy (one that I really like), and places the emphasis more on the orange and blue scheme. This feels like the jersey the team wanted all along. One side note here, I prefer the oil drop logo over the main Barons logo/crest that is featured on this new third. Just a preference.

Predicting The Oklahoma City Barons October Roster

Predicting The Oklahoma City Barons October Roster

You feel that? Yes, that’s the swelter my friends. Congratulations, Oklahoma, you have reached the early portions of August, and the summer hasn’t been all that awful…until now. Where your first thought in the morning is “Do I wear an undershirt today?”, “Do I pack a change of clothes?”, and “Will overtime hours cover my A/C bills or will I need to sell a kidney?”

Per Europe, “It’s the final countdownnnnn”, yet unlike Europe we actually know what we are counting down to (specifically), and it’s hockey season in OKC, and the tolerable temperatures that go along with it. But before we get there we need to evaluate contracts, positions, and the whosits and whatsits of roster placement. I’ve thrown darts against the wall, and here is my October roster in Oklahoma City.

Minor League Shakeup: Where We Really Are Right Now

Minor League Shakeup: Where We Really Are Right Now

Over the past few days, there have been some articles laying out the author’s ideas for what they think would be a fine plan to make this minor league relocation/shakeup thing work. However, some of it doesn’t make sense, some of it can’t or won’t happen, but there are a few good ideas. The only problem is, most people aren’t very well versed on the happenings in the minor leagues. Here’s my attempt at trying to set some things straight, fill people in on what’s being said, and hopefully we can go from there.

The Monday Mumble: RIP The Locker Room Of Memories

The Monday Mumble: RIP The Locker Room Of Memories

Northern Italy is an incredible place. Caught between heaven on earth and George Clooney’s playground, it is one of the most beautiful destinations on this glowing sphere with cultural subtleties that rival virtually any other area of Europe including it’s Southern counter-parts. On the quaint, calm, and incredibly Swiss portion of Lake Lugano lies a hotel that I once had the privilege of residing in for nearly a week. Mid-90′s, with my father touring the globe on a consulting endeavor, I had the privilege of making this neck of the woods my own personal “Choose Your Own Adventure” novel. It was a glorious week, and the moments of sheer pleasure still bathe my dreams.

Memories of architecture. Homes jetting upward, old-fashioned in a gray scale hue, seemingly emerged from the earth over timeless Swiss-Italian decades. Inside they were the complete opposite. Curtains in windows over 20′ tall, wooden tables with matching chairs that likely exist only in this particular home, in this particular area of the world. The churches were drastic, cold, and ominous. The local eateries colorful, friendly, and familiar.

However, as it is in most cultures it’s the people that make or break you experience, and the crepe-filled smiles of the Italian-Swiss-Italians were incredibly endearing.

Jenni Carlson was RIGHT!

Jenni Carlson was RIGHT!

Take a walk with me, won’t you, down memory lane. Back to a time when hockey was mind-shifting towards the AHL in Oklahoma City. On the horizon, just past the ugly Spaghetti Warehouse, was the Cox Convention Center home of the newfangled Oklahoma City Barons. The world was much more simpler then, and Jenni Carlson was right. Be amazed.
