Default Dream Is Dead

Not that it is surprise to anyone but the Alaska Dream are dead. According to the Alaska Daily News (http://www.adn.com/dream/story/638454.html) they pulled the plug yesterday. So there goes another one this year. How many does that make dead during this season? Off the top of my head we must have hit 15 by now.

The article also said that the owner(forgot his name) is not counting them out for the future(if I read that right). But they have only sold 400 tix, so if they don't do a better promotion job, I don't see it happening. I'm sorry for their supporters, though.

Let's not forget this from the ABA's CEO:

We hope you will accept our apologies and give The Alaska Dream and the ABA your support. Promise. We will not let you down again. Thank you.

There really is nothing that can happen in this league anymore that any of the veteran posters couldn't predict, is there?

It's so completely predictable now. Joe says something, and the absolute opposite is bound to occur.

And, to follow Sam's theme,

I look forward to the enevitable bashing of the Alaska ownership group, and the 'woe is me' victim portrayal by our Joe.

Thumbs down Why?????

Why is anyone throwing money into this waste of a league??? Especially as bad as the economy is, you'd think people would be more careful.
