Good on you, Rod, to recognize that there are teams in the playoffs other than the Regina Patsies, who have a free ride to the Memorial Cup.

I was at the game in Brandon last night. It was entertaining but that was due in large part to the play of both teams at times being awful. This series is likely a shadow of the series between the Jaw and Swifty.
