It's an old sports cliche - the "matinee affair".  It's what we've long called afternoon games.  We have one in Moose Jaw tomorrow as our Warriors host the Lethbridge Hurricanes at 2:30 in the afternoon.

We're getting the word out so you can help spread the word of this game time revision.

I'll never forget a similar schedule change taking place back in the 90s.  The Warriors had to move an evening game to the afternoon and then took advantage by taking off early on a road trip that night.  As we were just about to board the bus and roll, a young man with his little boy came walking up to the gates.

They were all decked out in Warriors jerseys and toques, the little boy with matching mitts and a mini stick.  The man approached me and said, "What?  It's not a home game tonight?"

I said, "Yes, there was a game but we had to move it to the afternoon.  It's over."

He was deflated.  The little boy cried.  They walked away slowly - heads hung low.

I hope that doesn't happen tomorrow.  But I'll bet it will.
