    Didn't see this posted elsewhere. I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often.

    I believe George mentioned a team plane going down.

    Fear not, Mr. Gloves.

    George: You know, Keith, what I've always wondered, with all these ball clubs flying around all season don't you think there would be a plane crash? ...
    Keith: (to Jerry) Do you perform anywhere in new York right now?
    Jerry: I'm performing in this club on the east Side. You should come in.
    George: But if you think about it...26 teams, 162 games a season, you'd think eventually an entire team would get wiped out.
    Keith: You know, I live on the East Side.
    Jerry: I'll tell you what, I'll give you my number and uh, just give me a call, tell me whenever you want to go.
    Keith: Or maybe just to get together for a cup of coffee
    Jerry: Oh. that would be great.
    George: Uh, it's only a matter of time.
    Keith: Who's this chucker?

    I believe Sabres' coach Lindy Ruff's younger brother was killed in a bus crash about 20 years ago while playing for Swift Current or some western junior team.

    Long, late drives, bad weather, narrow roads, it is amazing this stuff doesn't happen more often.

    4:15 am in Erie.

    Lucky everyone didn't freeze to death.

    I have driven on that road many times, and let's just say the lake gives you a little breeze right there. Cold. So very cold.

    I think Joe Sakic might have been on the Swift Current bus, too. I know one of the guys who was on it. Sorry I missed the Seinfeld reference but I would have never associated that with a minor-league bus crash. Of course, I'm a bit slow today with NyQuill still in my system so ...

    Joe Sakic was on the team.

    Players killed were Trent Kresse,Scott Kruger, Brent Ruff, and Chris Mantyka.

    If I'm not mistaken, I think our friend FoF did a story on this last year.

    Seinfeld is usually in the forefront of my mind.
