To The Editor:

Well, it’s about that time again.  Soon there will be cars and buses traveling west to Bangor for the last time to invade the soon to be “old” Bangor Auditorium.  It can be an exciting time for us fans.  I mean, who wouldn’t want their team to come home with a gold ball?  After all, isn’t that the goal for all teams?
