Sunday morning links

There wasn’t much media at the ArenaCup (S-R, AM-700 The Ticket/KXLY, a reporter from back East, the Las Vegas Review-Journal and one other fellow who I assume was stringing for another paper), but we’ll give you what we could find on the net before I check out of the hotel.

Here are game stories from the Las Vegas paper, the Citizen’s Voice and Times-Leader here and here. Here’s the S-R gamer I filed last night.

I’ve been asked via e-mail about the crowd size and Spokane’s contingent. The announced crowd was 5,800 and change. It was actually closer to 3,000-3,500, which is at least 1,000 more than I thought would be on hand. I know league officials were worried about a crowd of sub-2,000. Shock fans probably accounted for perhaps 1,200 of the crowd, impressive considering they didn’t know for sure Spokane would be in the game until eight days ago. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton had perhaps 150.
