You wrote " ... in a town dominated by the Colts, Pacers, colleges ... the mainstream media cast their attention elsewhere." You then closed your column wishing the Ice a championship season, "providing a fitting final legacy for Michael Schupay." Therefore, I found it a little disheartening that you didn't make mention of the Ice in your Jan. 5 column regarding local sports headlines to look for in 2009.
I understand there are numerous local and state athletic organizations and events that didn't find their way into your recent column, but in 2009 the Ice have a real chance to accomplish that championship wish of yours, and I think that will certainly be a headline to look for in 2009.
Please keep up your wonderful contributions to IBJ and the city of Indianapolis.
