The Milton Keynes Thunder are under threat, without much needed fundraising the team may not survive the rest of the season.
With the announcement of the Philadelphia Flyers new mascot Gritty, something of a debate occurred on the CTP group chat; which EIHL team has the best mascot?
I am unqualified to make this decision. All mascots are valid, and bring joy and entertainment to thousands at each game. However, in the words of hit movie Highlander; “There can only be one!”. Who’s mascot will come out on top? What exactly is Lightening Jack?
And just how many people can I make angry in one post? Let’s go!
Following a disappointing loss in Cardiff on Saturday 22nd, there were high expectations for the Blaze who faced a struggling short benched MK Lightning side, at home on the Sunday.
The Milton Keynes Lightning have been very dedicated to their work in the community, especially since coming up into the Elite League last season. Over this off season they are pushing extra hard to recruit new fans from outside of the Milton Keynes area including trips to Northampton & Bedford in Pucky’s off season tour.
This coming weekend they will be at the Northampton Festival with a stall at the Northampton Saint’s Rugby ground, situated right next to the site where the hot air balloons will be released.
Pucky will be on the Racecourse between 9am and 6pm and available for photos (maybe an autograph or two) and general Pucky cheekiness.
