Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire ".
The weather is projected to turn cold and windy through the day, so with this being a Thursday night that can only mean one thing....the Knights of Meaford have a home game tonight.
The Knights are host the Ville Marie Pirates at 7:30 pm in a significant Greater Metro Junior Hockey League test.
Last night, the Pirates were in Bradford where they scored a 6-4 win against the Bulls in a showdown between the # 2 and # 3 teams in the North Division.
The Knights are 10th and last in the North Division looking to snap a 2 game losing streak and catch the South Muskoka Shield in the process.
Meaford is funny.....
You can't dispute their standing with a record of 10-19 & 1, but by the same token, in a league that often features stacked rosters, they've seldom been blown out
It will be interesting to see how the Knights handle the odds when facing the second place Pirates at the Meaford & St Vincent Community Centre tonight.
And while we're talking about odds, did anyone notice I nailed all 4 NFL spreads last weekend ?
You're right, that's a first.
So this weekend the AFC and NFC Championship games go on Sunday.
In the AFC, Kansas City is favored by 7 & 1/2 over Tennessee. I'll take the Chiefs, hoping they don't stumble out of the gate the way they did against Houston.
And in the NFC, San Francisco is favored by 7 against the Green Bay Packers. This one is tougher to call, but I'll go with the 49'ers, at home, against someone other than Seattle, I like those odds.
See you tonight in Meaford.
I'm Fred Wallace
