Border Country Sports-October 11th
Good Morning! With the Border Country Sports Blog, I'm Keith Harrington.
My apologies for not getting the Monday Hot List out yesterday. I will try to get to it later today. The Monday Hot List on a Tuesday? It will have to work. I spent the holiday with my family yesterday and we had an awewome time. With our schdules we don't get many chances so we had to take advantage of it. We had hoped to work some sports into the schedule by stopping by Adirondack Thunder training camp but we just didn't make it.
