Hey fans, Roscoe here! Man o’ man these past two months August and September have been really busy for me. I have so many stories to talk about! Where should I start? Well, I had a great time meeting Admirals fans and introducing myself to new fans that I have not had the chance to meet me before at the Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis. As all Admirals fans know I am kind of a big deal at the Bradley Center since the season has kicked off! Anyways did you see the new color jersey that was released? Black, which is an awesome color! It goes great with my fur color!
Although we’ve released our new black jersey at the State Fair, the season opener last Saturday night was a great one! We were down by two goals in the first period and then scoring six unanswered goals in the second and third periods, making the final result six to two, crushing the Heat! Then on Sunday, we had another game which we were down by three goals in the first, but we scored two more in the second and third, however we could not get over the hump and take the victory.
Back to the summer for a little bit. I had a great time in the off-season! All the activities that I participated in were amazing! Some of the events that I took part in include: Mots Kite Festival, the Milwaukee Admirals Reading Program, Kenosha Komets open house, Joe’s Run, Walk, and Roll, and the Bob and Brian Plane Pull that benefits the MACC Fund!
The Mots Kite Festival was on September 11 and 12 and I participated in the Grand Launch of 500 kites that went up into the air! A contributing partner in this launch was Gift of Wings. I saw so many different types of kites that day. Some of the kites I saw did not even look like a kite. This event was so unique! The families here had a great time!
Then on September 17th, I was honored to go to six schools in southeastern Wisconsin and to be actively involved in the Admirals Reading program. Reading is an important part of our lives, and our players love to do it as well!
I attended Joe’s Walk, Run, and Roll fight against cerebral palsy on September 25th. This event was successful and we had a great time at Hart Park! Many people donated their time and money to cure this very bad disease. That same day I had to jump on over to the Kenosha Ice Arena where there was some hockey fans biting their finger nails waiting for me. The Kenosha Komets had an open house where I got to skate on the ice with kids from Kenosha and boy were there a lot of Admirals jerseys! I also had my fair share of the snacks that were waiting for me after the skating
Then on October 2nd, I went to the Bob and Brain Plane Pull where many groups came together to raise many for the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer). I could not believe the size of those planes, they were huge! The teams that competed were very energized! I tried to pull the plane, but did not move much. The forty kids that pulled the plane now, that was impressive and it made me look bad!
I will be taking a break from activities until the end of October, but this Friday we play the hated Chicago Wolves! We hope to see you there at 7p.m. for our second home game of the season. Until next time, this is Roscoe signing off!
