Who cares,

The snow is gone, it has been a month and a half since the baseball season started, and Rider training camp is about to start.

McCrimmon was not only smart enough to win the WHL but he was also smart enough to turn down an offer from Toronto.

Damn that Kelly McCrimmon and his winning ways. Sure glad we aren't like him.

Come on guys Rod doesn't actually hate Kelly. He's just jealous of Kelly's sick flow. Best hair in hockey.

Hi Bill. I don't think Rod gives a dam. Do you think it's a shock that Brandon won - everyone expected them to win But thanks for your useless comment.

This whole Rod vs Kelly McCrimmon thing is a bit funny. I think both parties have to know there is a rivalry for there to be an issue. Maybe some sour grapes from the past but I'm not sure there is a lot of lost sleep over the former Pats announcer thinking you are a dick

There are so many people who comment on here that don't know a thing about hockey or football. They are "super fans " and only see the team that they are supporting. Several comments from people who felt the Pats were going to be in it this year. BWK are a championship team and many felt the Pats were at this level. I hope that some of these people now realize how good the Wheatkings are. Maybe they will learn to watch games and notice skill levels and mistakes etc rather than just watch with pure emotion.

Nolan Patrick was MVP and he's not even eligible to be drafted until 2017 NHL draft. This kid is going to be a top 3 pick.

I could have gotten this information from Lubke's blog.

Kelly McCrimmon and you can ask him he'll laugh, but he spends absolutely no time what so ever giving consideration to the thoughts, words, and actions of Rod Pedersen.

The scary thing is that the Wheat Kings are going to be better next year and the year after that.

No one is beating London. Sorry Brandon Fans. So close but not there yet

Maybe Kelly used to date Mrs Sportscage back in the day?

Nah there is no truth to that because Mrs Sportscage got around the block being a beer rep Rod and her met by the glow of a neon light and all that goes with that stuff. Kelly was smart to stay away from the glow of neon lights.

"Who's Ron Peterson?"

Kelly McCrimmon when asked about Rod.

You guys got it all wrong. When Rod was trying out for the Wheat Kings he met a nice girl while he was there. Rod was completely smitten but shortly after she quit answering his calls and Rod was heartbroken. He decided to investigate why and found out that the guy who had stolen her heart away was none other than Mr. McCrimmon.

Hence why Rod's favourite George Strait song is "A Fire I Can't Put Out".
