|From the First 2-1 win over Bingo!|
I can happily report that the AEROS win 2-1 over Binghamton in - what observers described - a mad scene type hockey game!
But we take any kind of win, right fans?
And so we now are assured that we shall have live hockey in June in Houston, next week..with one or two games to decide the Cup Winner!
Quoting - sort of - from an Ortmeyer interview: "We love to reward the fantastic fans by winning the Cup in Houston"! We love you, too, Jed Ortmeyer!
Aeros in 6 or 7! Go O!
I did blog last night, but somehow goofed with the posting times.
So here it is now:
I saw/heard the encore of the famous (or infamous?) Valkyrie with Deborah Voigt as Brunnhilde, as *directed* by Robert Le Page. It is the 2. in the Met's Ring cycle which started with "Das Rheingold' (see review earlier in October 2010)..conducted by James Levine (seen here in his glory days as a musical Wunderkind) who still was able to make magic of the score with the orchestra but unable to overcome the gaps left by the less than secure direction whose focus seem to have been more on the mechanics of the set than the the singers..leaving them to flounder among those planks! ;-) The brass section did an outstanding job and the overall impression of the orchestra was very positive! Mellifluous voiced *Renaissance Man* Placido Domingo did the honors of intro and interviews.
