Wranglers entertaining; why no radio coverage?

To the sports editor:

My daughter and I were privileged to attend Game 4 of the Kelly Cup championship series between the Wranglers and the Cincinnati Cyclones at the Orleans Arena. I say privileged because it was the most pleasant and intense evening of sports I have ever attended.

I am a lifelong Los Angeles Kings and NHL fan, and I truly now do not care whether the NHL, NBA or any other major league sports team comes here. I have my team.

My only criticism of the Wranglers is that they have not been able to get their games on radio, and my hope is that given the success of the team the past three seasons, and especially this year, that the games can be on radio next season.

Kudos to Dewey for bringing teams to life

To the sports editor:

I am writing to compliment the Review-Journal’s Todd Dewey on his stories about the Wranglers and the 51s.

There are few writers who not only can cover all the requisites but also connect the reader with the "feel" of the event. Dewey does this so well, captures the key inputs from players and coaches and connects the reader ever so subtly with exactly how it played out, whom it hurt, who excelled and where they go from here.

His profiles bring a fresh appreciation to us about the players, their backgrounds, goals and degree of success.

Celtics-Lakers ‘rivalry’ Hollywood concoction

To the sports editor:

There is an adage: For there to be a rivalry, both teams must have success. Mark Heisler of the Los Angeles Times puts a true Hollywood spin on the Los Angeles Lakers’ 80 percent ratio, trying to market a rivalry where there is none (June 1, "Lakers vs. Celtics a rivalry for ages").

If the Lakers were based in any other city, the Boston-Philadelphia and Boston-Detroit series over the years would have been recognized as the de facto championship series.
