The Playoff Drama has begun . . .

They removed my IV and released me from the hospital after 2 days of recovery, only to find we’re headed for more adventure in Sikeston tonight! Round one of post season play is completed and the picture is pretty interesting and familiar. The Bulls and Oilers have come back to haunt their opponents from last week. Have no fear Railroader fans, but have faith that our boys are ready for the task at hand. I’ve pull pulled out the ole Crystal Ball and see lots of action ahead with the Railroaders getting it together for some great play. Can’t see anything on the Hounds yet, but something tells me the Oilers are greasing themselves up for a game.

We say farewell to the Firebirds and Pirates for the 2007 season and look forward to playing with them next year. It was a good time engaging the Pirates and I really didn’t mind being taken prisoner, you didn’t torture me as bad as I lead on. Heck, I’ve been run over by several trains and survived those! To Firebirds who handed us a 23-3 loss in the second game of the season, well ……. fun game for you, huh? Great job to the KREI guys and gals, as well as Rick the voice of the Pirates. You really helped keep up the spirit of game and the season with your broadcast and I enjoyed every moment.

Down to 4 teams now. Remember this Railroaders, they can’t take away your season pennant for best season record. Now fire up the boiler the way you’ve learned to, and full steam ahead to Sikeston.

    Thanks for the kind words, and best of luck. There are some great rival games in this league, and I'm sure the playoffs will produce even more excitement.

  2. Well, after reading the comments under "The Season's Drama is Over", I can see we have our fair share of Doubting Thomas's.
    Our Railroaders will do this; they'll dig deep, remember Saturday night, and come out with the same "never give up" attitude that they had then. We've seen them come from behind, and we've seen them lead all the way through nine innings. They'll do it again tonight.
    They've had a chance to rest up now, so they've got a fresh wind.
    So, "Ye of little faith", remember Saturday, and all the other wins that got the guys to the Number 1 spot that no one else wants to admit to (still haven't seen anything on it on the KIT websiet yet).
    Roll Train!! Go all the way!
