No Bulls

The speculation was, sadly, true.
The San Francisco Bulls folded in mid-season. Couldn't even muster one last home game.
That's life in bush league hockey, I suppose. Too bad.
Of course, the ECHL is a dicey business proposition. Just ask the Fresno city council.
If you don't believe that, I have a large inflatable dog to sell you.

Not A Bull Market After All

Sad news that the San Francisco Bulls appear unlikely to make it through the season, at least not in San Francisco. I always wondered how they could make it financially at the Cow Palace and it appears the answer is they couldn't given its poor location and its ownership by a state agency about as responsive as the DMV
I kind of appreciated the decrepit nature of the Cow Palace, as it contributed to the Slap Shot-esque nature of the ECHL game that gave Bulls hockey its entertainment value, so there's something appropriate about the venture foundering on flaky underfinanced ownership.
Looks like there'll be another jersey for the Cow Palace memorabilia display.
