The CCWS Schedule According to Anonymous

This is a good post by one of my buddies , taken with his permission. It is a good summary, based on press accounts of what the schedule is shaping up to be.


With the 2005 schedule release within a week, here's a little round-up of what I've managed to squeeze out of various press reports.

When will it be released?

- Several previous reports have today (21st) as the release date. Still possible.

- According to Marcie, San Jose has scheduled a press release event on Tuesday the 26th, indicating a announcement at that time.

- And third, the 28th has also been mentioned, as it is the deadline for the Molson races to sort themselves out. Bob Singleton's quote about the Edmonton/Calgary debate: "...And we know we still have until the 28th so we're not rushing it." Also, the TV announcement is supposed to be on the 28th.

What's on it?
