Happy Birthday To III

by J.R.

One year ago today, I posted a brief item, a video of a Chambers Pot rumble between Dallas and Nashville and at ConferenceIII dot wordpress dot com, III Communication was born.

Remember: You’re Playing For All Those Who Have Gone Before

by J.R.

As the Blackhawks take the ice tonight with a chance to lift the Stanley Cup, let’s hope they remember they are playing for all the Conference III legends  who never had the honor of lifting the Cup for a Conference III team.

Despite a glittering record in Conference III, one Conference III legend in particular comes to mind:
