Now that Cleveland has a winning hockey team (or sports team for that matter) I felt it time to test the PHD of hockey world, Canada, on their knowledge of Cleveland. They passed, I think. Actual email with the MOOSE:

Subject: Lake Erie Monsters
Thank you so much for your time. I was planning to bring my 4 children (triplets and 1 boy) to their first Moose game this weekend as I see you are battling the Lake Erie Monsters for what appears to be first place. I was wondering if you can help me? My children are young and I cannot find the city of “Lake Erie” anywhere. The girls are 3 years 5 months, 2 days, 1 hour and 40 seconds, 1 hour 5 minutes and 33 seconds and 1 hour 12 minutes as of the time I type this email. My son is 5.
My concerns are two fold:
- MONSTERS. Are they scary? Do they present in a manner that would frighten young children? We are also good Christian, I’ll assume that they are not “satanic” type monsters?
- Lake Erie? Where the heck is this? I looked all over Canada and cannot find this city. I guess I’m just dying to know.
Forgive me as we are new fans to hockey as I’ve dedicated my life to making better paper labels. Now that I got a promotion we can finally start coming and supporting the team. Also, are the truenorth related to the service stations I’ve seen before?
RocqueRESPONSE FROM THE MOOSE!!!!From: Robert TDate: February 17, 2011 1:45:15 PMTo: RocqueSubject: RE: Lake Erie MonstersHello and thanks for your interest in our team and league. The Lake Erie Monsters play out of Cleveland, Ohio. Cleveland is on Lake Erie so they have adopted the name of the lake, and the monster is a lake monster, like the Loch Ness Monster or Ogopogo. There logo is not satanic but the image is that of a monster.
True North Sports and Entertainment is unrelated to any service stations.
I hope this helps…enjoy the game.
