The Danbury Hat Tricks are the city's team, a city that has always had a passion for pro hockey. We've had different teams over a lot of years here in the city like: the Trashers, Whalers, Titans and Stars. There have been varying degrees of success with the different franchisees, but largely the city has been very supportive.

A Tour of the Ice Arena for the Danbury Hat Tricks Victorious Weekend

This season is underway at the Danbury Ice Arena and it began in victorious fashion. I was in the Arena for Friday and Saturday's games and I experienced the entire thing for you. Once you are done checking this out, you are going to buy tickets, that is not a threat, it's just what is going to happen.

There is something for everyone inside that arena, even if you don't like hockey. There were a ton of activities to be a part of in the Arena, even if you don't like hockey. That's not my style, if I go for a game I want to watch it but all the extras don't hurt the experience one bit,

This is not a commercial, I'm just that pumped up. I've been looking for something to do on a Friday or Saturday in Danbury when we don't already have plans and now I have it. You can catch me down at the Arena watching our Hat Tricks smashing faces and bossing the ice.

Now I just have to learn the game and the players better. I didn't grow up following hockey like I did with football, baseball or basketball. We certainly didn't play hockey around here, there was nowhere to do that. I'm a fast learner, I'll be screaming and yelling at the refs soon enough calling penalties for them.

Here' just a smash cut of the action I captured Friday. If you have the speakers up, you'll probably hear some heavy swearing, that was Ron and I. If anyone is screaming about shaving something, that is definitely me.

P.S. Did you think I meant the players had a successful weekend at the bar? No, me, I meant me.

Here's the pre-game speech from the Galantes.

This one is my video but I'm not the one screaming about European players, I don't know if they fight.

Esposito VS. Alves: A Complete Breakdown of Danbury’s 2021 Mayoral Race

Voting in a local election is one the best ways to express your beliefs and immediately impact the world around you but how can you really know a candidate from a few quotes in the local newspaper? You can't.

The paper cannot give you a sense for the candidates personality nor can they show you how the person performs under pressure. A radio interview is a much more intimate thing and you can learn who your local candidates are on a deeper level.

In the weeks leading up to the 2021 Danbury Mayoral Election, we believe we have provided Hat City voters with an unbiased view of their options. Each Friday we brought Roberto Alves and Dean Esposito on the Ethan and Lou Show and asked them both the same questions.

Because the person who goes last, has the ability/advantage of answering to the first candidate, we would alternate the order every few weeks. We did not endorse either candidate, we simply gave an even portrait of the two men, their politics and their vision for Danbury.

This is a look back at the I-95 Election coverage for you to review the day before Election. Below you will be given an excerpt from each article we did with the candidates and a link that can redirect you to the full article. Most of the articles include full interviews we conducted with your candidates, Vote tomorrow, it matters.
