Random Thought #1: Looking to get away from the Okanagan heat? The ice officially goes into Prospera Place tomorrow. Call it - Good Friday!
Random Thought #2: I learned PG Cougars radio guy helps paint logos on ice. Disaster if I did same. Using crayons I never stay in the lines.
Random Thought #3: Kelowna Rockets rookie camp features 180 players. Second biggest camp ever. Can Lorne Frey name them all and recognize every face?
Random Thought #4: Best part of rookie camp is meeting prospects. Worst part is seeing fear in their eyes as I throw a mic in their face.
Random Thought #5: I've interviewed many shy 15 year-olds over the years. Best were Madison Bowey and Shane McColgan. Worst? Richard Kelly.
Random Thought #6: Rockets second round pick from this summers bantam draft won't attend. Cal Foote is sidelined with a broken arm.
Random Thought #7: Speaking of McColgan, the former Kelowna Rockets forward underwent surgery to repair broken thumb. Broke it working out.
Random Thought #8: If I'm not mistaken, Prospera Place/Skyreach Place is celebrating 15 seasons of hosting the Kelowna Rockets in 2013/2014.
Random Thought #9: Can you imagine hosting 180 players for rookie camp at the old Memorial Arena?
Random Thought 10: Where is Cirque du Soleil this year? They are usually here in August, forcing the Rockets to hold rookie camp at CNC. Not this year.
