Canisius’ baseball championship over the weekend marked the final event of the 2012-13 MAAC season (and from the ticker on the MAAC site, it’s less than 90 days until the next one starts). Here’s a look at the championships each school accumulated this academic year.
Here’s a slightly larger version if you want a better look
I didn’t realize Marist won so many things. Part of that’s probably because they won titles in tennis and men’s rowing, which I don’t follow because Canisius doesn’t field those sports. But seven titles out of a possible 24 is impressive, especially for a school that also has an FCS football team (even if it doesn’t give scholarships).

I started a running list of goalies Cory Conacher has scored on while working for The Griffin. Now that I’m done at TGN, I’m keeping the list going here and beefing it up a little.
Asterisks (*) denote playoff games. Carrots (^) mark game-winning goals.

The Buffalo Sabres hosted a season-ending press conference at the First Niagara Center Monday, with team president Ted Black and still-general manager Darcy Regier holding court.
Sabres owner Terry Pegula again bypassed an opportunity to speak to media, as has been par for his tenure in Buffalo. As the press conference turned from discussion to circus, the focus turned to Pegula’s presence (or lack thereof) as the head of the franchise.
Black said Pegula has spoken to media when appropriate, which is highly debatable, and went on to say that Pegula doesn’t need to comment on day-to-day activity when he has people employed to do that for him. Black said Pegula hired him to run the business operations, so he will discuss those, and Pegula hired Regier to run the hockey operations, so Regier will talk about hockey.
To an extent, that makes sense. If Terry Pegula doesn’t want to talk to media, he doesn’t have to. It’s his team. Continue reading ‘What is a Terry Pegula?’
