Bulldogs drawing flies in Hamilton
If the Hamilton Bulldogs won the Calder Cup, wonders hockey club owner Michael Andlauer, would it be worth organizing a parade? ...The Bulldogs are looking a lot like a team that could win the Cup this year, up 2-0 on the Chicago Wolves in the conference finals, but the way the team's attendance has fallen off a cliff in the postseason has to be a huge concern.
The Bulldogs, one win shy of the American Hockey League semifinals entering a game in Winnipeg last [week], drew just 1,703 fans for a Sunday matinée at Copps Coliseum.
That followed crowds of 3,270 Saturday and 2,177 last Tuesday.
Hamilton drew close to 5,000 per game during the regular season.
I'm planning on making the trip to Hamilton at least once should the team make the finals.
