Another week has gone by and a lot going on here at SHoE. The Bears went to Charlotte and came back with 2 wins via a 12 round shootout and comeback win. We are also making a push to get a Shorty Award. As of this writing, we are tied for 6th place with the Vancouver Canucks. Since you are reading this I’ll assume that you like us, so go vote! On Saturday, the Bears went to Binghamton and it took another amazing comeback to get a win. Finally we gathered your pictures from the Outdoor Classic and posted them for all to see.
