Shock want win, fun in Vegas

OK, where were we.

Last I saw the Spokane Shock, they were disposing of Stockton in the first-round of the playoffs. Then I went on a nine-day vacation to Alaska (scheduled nearly a year ago, prior to learning that I would be covering the 2009 Shock). Thanks to John Blanchette and Steve Bergum for handling the beat in my absence.

As you can see by the lack of posts, I was without a computer and apparently nobody bothered to update this blog with details of Spokane’s wins over Boise and Tulsa. We’re back at it and you can find game stories from Boise here and Tulsa here and here.

Looking forward, it’s ArenaCup week and I just filed a notebook that will run in Tuesday’s S-R. The unedited version is below.

Shock set poll record; ArenaCup to Vegas

Neither one of these news items is a surprise.

First, Spokane came out No. 1 again in the weekly af2 poll. That marks 15 straight weeks, a new af2 record. Second, the ArenaCup, as expected, will be played in Las Vegas in August.

I’ll post a Shock notebook this afternoon.
