Both franchises have long since ceased, but today we have something going in these here parts that vaguely resembles the very few playoffs series that existed between the Texans and Blackhawks back in the '70s.
Thanks to Texas Brahmas president Mike Barack, one of the hardest working men in local sports (not kidding; this dude hasn't slept since '94), he gave me the 4-1-1 on the following:
The Brahmas of the Central Hockey League continue their first-round playoff series against the Allen Americans at the NYTex Sports Centre in North Richland Hills with Game 3 at 7 p.m. on Wednesday night. Game 4 is 7:30 p.m. Friday night. The series is currently tied at 1.
There are team autograph cards for the first 500 fans for Game 3. The first 1,000 in the building for Game 4 receive free thunderstix that can serve as solid noisemakers during the game, and can endlessly annoy your parents, neighbors, or other loved ones.
These games are actually pretty fun, a fairly inexpensive entertainment alternative, plus the fights can be just brutal.
