One day after winning their first Conference III Championship Belt since October — ending the Stars first-ever run after just five days — the Jets have to go on the road to defend the title against St. Louis with the Blues less than a week removed from a 78-day run with the strap.
Can the Jets stave off the Blues from reclaiming what they see as their birthright or will a team with Evander Kane make like Kane and drop the Belt one day after winning it?
After ending St. Louis’ record run, Dallas gets its first chance to defend the Conference III Championship Belt today with a trip to Winnipeg.
Can the Stars start a long run of their own or will Winnipeg get its first title since the Jets beat those same Blues back in October?
Every Friday (except this week obviously), bloggers from around The Heptarchy will update us on the news and notes from their teams (with that fancy header image courtesy of Mike D, updated anew this week, and like democracy itself, it’s a perpetual work-in-progress). Yes, we ripped this off from TRH’s Pacific War Room; no, we don’t care. And since we ripped it off, we’ll follow their lead and go in standings order.
This is a tale of two men, connected in only the most tenuous ways.
One was a great king, a man who, largely through the force of his own ego, united peoples who thought themselves distinct into a nation which would grow to be the most powerful the world has ever known.
The other, born 1,077 years after the first — both had fathers named Edward (one known as The Elder; the other as a winger) — would similarly bring together under one title warring factions, factions whose similarities out-numbered their differences, but who nonetheless, had to be united, again, through the force of a powerful ego.
The first man was the King of the English.
The second is the Ayatollah of Rock ‘n’ Rolla.
And together they have something to teach Conference III.
