Woohoo…it’s spring! That means you need to put a little spring in your step and make your way to some of these events going on this week! On Wednesday, make your way to the Community Blood Center for Because Kerrigan Cared Week, where all blood donations will be made in memory of Steve Kerrigan, a veteran Dayton broadcaster who recently lost his battle with multiple myeloma, a blood cancer. After you have donated blood, you will want to help replenish your blood supply by eating a good dinner! So be sure to head to the Bonefish Grill for their Bang Bang Shrimp Wednesdays or to Sammy’s El … [Read more...] about Jane’s Best Bets (3/23 – 3/27)
It’s time to start making plans for the week, as there are lots of events happening around town! Here are a few options! On Wednesday, talk politics and help solve the world’s problems at the Drinking Liberally - Dayton event at Trolley Stop. Seriously, they will be talking about politics, but I don’t think their solution to the world’s problems will be drinking…although the research shows that drinking water can help solve the dehydration problem. If you own a business, you will want to attend Social Media for Business: How to Create and Use a Facebook Fan Page at Groundz4Living at The … [Read more...] about Jane’s Best Bets (2/23 – 2/27)
Some of you may be suffering from cabin fever, as the weather last week wasn’t conducive to enjoying all the wonderful activities in Dayton. Although it’s supposed to be cold this week according to our local meteorologists, hopefully you will have the opportunity to get out and experience some of the wonderful things going on in our city! On Wednesday, in the afternoon, take a trip to the Dayton Metro Library’s main branch for Special Events: Putting the FUN in Fundraising, in order to learn how to plan and execute a successful fundraising event. Over at the Schuster Center, check out … [Read more...] about Jane’s Best Bets (2/9 – 2/13)
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

Enough talking though, let's jump right in. The Dayton Dragons are still selling out games but are having a difficult time finding a good rhythm. They've dropped six of their last ten games, and out of those, 4 of them … [Read more...] about Dayton Sports Weekly Update: 6/7/2010
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.
