As the winds whistle down the Oklahoma plains, the Barons are reaching a point where we can begin to discuss changes for next season. Local newspapers are discussing crossroads for the old hires, and the new men (like Jujhar Khaira, in photo by Rob Ferguson. All rights reserved) are moving in and impressing the locals. It is, then, a “preview of coming attractions” even as the Texas Stars, a powerhouse built with hard steel and meant for a deeper run, prepare to level the youthful Barons.
Will the Barons answer back? Tonight’s the night!
BARONS IN THE PLAYOFFS
A few items worth noting:
- Curtis Hamilton is having a little run late in the season/postseason. Who knows if it’ll amount to anything.
- Darnell Nurse started in game one, and impressed but also showed his youth. It’ll be interesting to see tonight’s lineup.
- Anton Lander may be playing his last game at the Cox Convention center tonight.
- Tend the Farm’s Neal Livingston is a brilliant writer. His Game One summary is top drawer. Livingston is a helluva writer, he really is.
