Ask and ye shall receive. Since there's no hockey worth talking about, where do you go for pizza when you can't get to Pat's? For my money in Portland, the best are Otto's, Bonobo's, Flat Bread, and Portland Pie. Great gourmet pizzas, all but PP are wood-fire.

Are we ready to admit that the off-season is really here?

Reportedly the game at Fenway will take the place of the game at BU (scheduled for Sunday, November 17). Reports also are that we are set to see a Hockey East festival at Fenway with 5 conference games (likely over two days) highlighted by a possible Notre Dame-Boston College game. The 11th HEA team would likely play a non-conference game at Fenway. I don't know if the ECAC or AHA teams from the area are doing likewise, but I would expect to see some D-III and high school action as well.

None of this is "official" yet but an announcement could be coming any day now. Or the league may defer and let the Red Sox make the announcement on their timetable.

Had my first Portland Pie pizza, in of all places, Nashua, NH. Looking at a job over there on friday and there was a Margarita's right at the job and a PP. It was good, not great in my opinion. Seemed wierd to see memorabelia of Maine over there on the walls until it dawned on me it was the Portland Pie Co..., . A draft was good with it, but kind of wished I had did Margaritas instead...course if I had done that, I still could be there :D

Gotta try this Italian joint in Westbrook...it'd be a pickup on the way home from work.

So, what we all want to know, is Timmay fired yet?

Speaking of food, I wonder how cheap lobsters will be this summer? Lobstermen were practically giving them away last year.

Yeah, last year the prices were really low on soft-shell lobsters because they shed early, if I'm getting my facts straight. Has anybody ever had lobster as a pizza topping?

I don't really care for portland pie at all... as was mentioned earlier, otto is fantastic. the pat's in yarmouth does an all right job (if memory serves, the family owns that locale). in westbrook, are you talking about casa novello? not pizza, but not too far from there, the blue burrito cafe is terrific (everything from scratch, owners are from the new orleans area)...

whoever mentioned po' boys and pickles is spot on... the name doesn't do the food justice!

That was me. I love Po Boys. I could eat there every day. The Frog and Turtle in Westbrook is really good too. Try the "swamp thing" its a cocktail that has a very unique presentation. Casa Novella is excellent. Reasonable prices (esp on Mon's & Tues 2-4-1).

No I think someone said Angelones had good pizza, that is the one I was referring to. For a brew and a burger and great atmosphere its hard to beat Sebago Brewing Co. right in Gorham in my opinion. Me and mss bear were there friday night.

Nice goal by Derek Arnold to put Lowel up 1-0 over BU
To bad Maine can't get a player like that

Derek Arnold with the game winner, once again TF F, nice job judging talent Timmay

And TIMMAY's got his perfect pitch to the powers that be for why he should keep his job. "We got beat by the team that won it all, if it hadn't been them, it would have been us".


I guarantee you'll see some variation of this in the BDN next fall.

Bought my first season tickets in 77-78. Walked around an unfinished Alfond sitting in various places before I chose 2 seats in what was then called section F. Kept those seats for thirtysome years before letting them go this past season. Tim sucked the joy of what was Maine Hockey out of me. I was angry for awhile, now I don't care. Sad but true. Whatever happens with Whitehead it will never be the way it was.

Hopefully he reads this forum but I really doubt it. Someone send it to him.

The Angelone's stores are separate, but owned by sisters. Daughters of the founder. The sister who had the SoPo location took a pot of gold from a bank for her location. She had a great spot, but did no noticeable business. I never saw cars in the lot, and the one or two times I went in there was only one person running the whole place.

Living in the "woods"...my choices are Home and C-store pizza...when I am feeling lazy, c-store wins out. HOWEVER, when I get a pizza craving, it is for Tri-City in Bangor...Then I bring it home and eat in comfort...plus I have a better beer selection.
