Gomer didn’t play in Bakersfield. Apparently he got food poisoning.
Tonight (Sat.), the Alaska Aces are in Ontario, a city just outside of L.A., and there’s no guarantee Gomer will suit up. Thousands upon thousands may be disappointed. Ontario is birthplace of overweight Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder. Fielder doesn’t even come close to looking like an athlete. He looks more like the guy who guards the front door at a Hell’s Angel clubhouse.
But I’m getting off the subject. Gomer is ill and didn’t dress for the Bakersfield game. At least he says he was ill.
Yes, I know. You’re waiting impatiently. Sorry but I had to sleep. And then there was that 40 minutes on the toilet.
It was a rainy and sort of mild 12 celsius (53 F) in Stockton during Gomer and his Alaska Aces’ big visit to Northern California on Wednesday night, and the good news for Aces fans was a solid 6-2 win over the hometown Thunder.
But alas, it’s not good news for the 14 Habs fans in the world who love Mr. Gomez. I must break the news here and now that he had no goals, no assists, no shots, 4 penalty minutes, and was minus 1.
What can I say? He couldn’t get it done on this night, even falling short during the Aces’ three power play chances. But I’ll bet he tried hard. In Gomezian fashion.
I’m just so sorry for this bad news.
Gomer and the gang make their way south to Bakersfield, birthplace of Merle Haggard and boxer Jerry Quarry, for a clash with the Condors on Friday night (game time 6 pm), and hopefully better news is on the horizon. Is he in a slump? I hope not. He’s not used to that.
I’ve been to Bakersfield and I can tell you that there’s quite a lot of oil pumps working hard in the area. Maybe Gomer, if he has a few hours to kill in the afternoon, can buy an oil well when he’s there!
