With the thermometer quickly dipping, and cool breezes winding their way throughout the Miami Valley, we come upon another autumn here in Dayton. And as the leaves start to change, the Shakespeare in South Park Company gears up for its fourth season of outdoor theater with a presentation of The Merry Wives of Windsor on September 16th through the 18th. This whimsical play is a return to comedy after last year’s excellent production of Romeo and Juliet flexed many of the player’s dramatic muscles. However it is unique in its own right among Shakespeare’s more lighthearted affairs, offering a … [Read more...] about Shakespeare in South Park Presents: The Merry Wives of Windsor
Sorry for the late post today. Yesterday was exhausting and since I have a job I have to worry about during the day (I gotta sleep sometime!), it was the earliest I could make it. So much happening around Dayton, it's exciting. The summer is only half way finished but my mind is already wandering to fall. Maybe yours will too after today. Well, I don't want to do this anymore than anyone wants to hear it but the Dragons are slipping further into futility by dropping another 5 games in a row this last week, with their only win being last night, and results from today not currently … [Read more...] about Dayton Sports Weekly Upate: 7/20/2010
Woah, so clearly there is a gap in your brief sports news on DaytonMostMetro.com from last week. What can I say? The holidays got to me, and that amount of alcohol and fireworks makes for an uncooperative writing mood. Besides, unless you wanted to read more about how the Dragons are stinking things up, you didn't miss much. This LAST week was the money week here in Dayton so thank God I'm here to tell you! Unless you read it somewhere else first.... Here we go! Ok ok don't get all bent out of shape the Dragons didn't do so bad over the last TWO weeks... They managed to even themselves … [Read more...] about Dayton Sports Weekly Update: 7/12/2010
Week four at the Weekly Update! That seems like a milestone for me that I should probably write down somewhere. Hope a couple of you went out and saw a game this last weekend despite the insane heat again. Here we go. Ouch, The Dragons had a rough weekend away from home against the Lansing Lugnuts. They fought some hard games but alas were swept in the series. This will make the third time this year that the Dragons have lost every game in a series against Lansing. The only time they have been successful was actually their very first series of the year in which they swept Lansing. … [Read more...] about Dayton Sports Weekly Update: 6/28/2010
Wow, is it just me or has summer hit full swing already? The sun was so bright I thought I'd see Leo the Lion pass right out at Baujan Field this last Saturday. Here is you weekly update for June 21st. It's been a pretty solid week for the Dragons, losing their first series away against the Fort Wayne Tin Caps, and winning their second against the Great Lake Loons in Dayton. It made for a great weekend unless you saw them play on Sunday afternoon. Dayton had swept their series with Wisconsin to end last week and seemed to bring some confidence to the team as they travelled to Fort … [Read more...] about Dayton Sports Weekly Update: 6/21/2010
Good Morning , here are last weeks sports stories from Dayton Ohio, just in case you may have missed them: The Dragons did pretty well this last week. Though they didn't see any action at home, they did win 4 games out of 6 including a double header this last Saturday that resulted from a postponed game on Friday against the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. In the first game of the day, the Dragons managed their second shutout game of the year as well as their largest margin of victory by defeating Wisconsin 10-0. Outfielder Cameron Satterwhite has been on fire this year, hitting .476 over … [Read more...] about Dayton Sports Weekly Update: 6/14/2010

The Dayton Gems pt. 2 The Dayton Gems were originally established in 1964 by local business man Edgar “Lefty” McFadden. Discussing the team of that day may sound an awful lot like describing them today, for many similarities exist between that team and the one that now plays for Dayton. The Gems played then where they play now, at Hara Arena, which also opened its doors for the first time in 1964. The original team also played in the International Hockey League. The IHL similarly folded (though much later), but has been re-established as a new entity carrying on the same name. Though … [Read more...] about Thanks to Lefty, the Gems Play Today.
The Dayton Gems Pt. 1 After the Dayton Bombers decided not to play this season, it looked like the city would be without a professional hockey team for the first time since 1991. The Bombers had varying degrees of success throughout their eighteen seasons, making it to the Kelly Cup Finals several times and to the playoffs thirteen of those eighteen years. Yet they always failed to draw a crowd large enough to fill The Nutter Center. Money woes associated with the inability to fill such a large venue eventually led to the owners turning control of the team back to the ECHL last June with no … [Read more...] about First Season for Dayton Gems Punctuated by Community Outreach.
Autumn is the favorite time of year for many people, bringing out some of the best in American traditions and folklore. It’s the time of year when the holidays slowly creep into our thoughts; when pumpkin pie and apple cider is plentiful; turkey, squash and all manner of food is enjoyed seemingly only for a few months until the following year; when ghost stories and old legends start cropping up again, and family comes together as the wind gets colder. But for many, it’s considered the best time of year for one simple reason; football. Indeed die hard fans from all over the country will … [Read more...] about 5-0 WSU Raiders still “Undefeated since 1967”
