The VERY latest in Falcons media

This just in from Joe Babik and the cool ECHL new department:

Jack Carnefix, ECHL Vice President of Communications, (609) 452-0770, Ext. 16

PRINCETON, N.J. – The ECHL announced on Tuesday that fans can now access game scores, game summaries and league standings on their cellular telephone and wireless devices at http://wap.echl.leaguestat.com/.

The “Wireless Application Protocol” site is a plain text miniature version of the statistics information available on the official web site at www.ECHL.com which is formatted to fit on a smaller screen.

In addition to the current day’s games, fans have the ability to see scores from the previous day as well as the schedule for the upcoming day and there is a link to the league standings.

"Wireless Application Protocol", if that doesn't sound like hockey, I don't know what does.

The latest in Falcons media

Listen to the Falcons live at 1550snr.com or archived - the new radio man, Joe Babik, is great by the way.

Read the new player blog at FresnoFalcons.com - good luck bringing it up though.

Watch the Falcons on B2 Networks or on Channel 32.

Also, coming in the next couple weeks, a regular Falcons report by me on the Dorktown Podcast.

Kelly Quest begins

The Falcons overcome a bad and smokey first period to beat the Wranglers and end their winless streak against Las Vegas - maybe Vegas ate too much bad Italian food in Bakersfield.

There was a real buzz going through the northern concourse before the game -very cool.

Seeing the Pacific Division Champion banner unveiled was great. What wasn't was the on-ice fireworks and the ensuing smoke that setoff a coughfest throughout the Save Mart Center. The smoke didn't really dissipate till the second period.

There was no radio broadcast playing in the restrooms for the game. Hopefully that was just an opening night glitch and the restroom radio will return.

I was really hoping Murphy, after making a comeback from last season's injury, would score the first goal, but assisting on it will do just fine.

Did you take some pictures from opening night? Don't forget to post them on the Falcons Flickr Page.

Other scores from the ECHL's Opening Night.

New bee season approaches

The Fresno Bee has a spanky new redesigned website, go check it OUT. If you scroll down to the bottom of the front page, look under sports, you'll find this chippy Falcons page that brings together links to Falcons news.

Hopefully, we will see more coverage of the Falcons this year in the Bee. I wouldn't count on it though, they're barely mentioning the NHL this year. It's a good thing I have NHL Center Ice and NHL.com, otherwise I wouldn't know the season had started.

Vegas' pacific smack begins

The Las Vegas Wranglers haven't even unpacked their bags since moving into the Falcons Pacific Division and already they're trash talking.

Go check Bako writer N.L. Belardes' blog for the delusional Wrangler fan musings.
